Chronic illness affects significant portions of our country’s population. According to the National Health Council, “About 40 million Americans are limited in their usual activities due to one or more chronic health conditions.” This week our doctors will be addressing ways to improve overall immunity in the presence of a chronic illness or injury.
- How does chronic illness affect overall immunity?
- If a condition is manageable but not curable, is there hope (or what can you do)?
- What are naturopathic approaches to chronic pain?
- Can naturopathic doctors work with medical specialists to customize care?
- Aired live on October 21st, 5pm PST
- REPLAY COMING SOON
