Laboratory Testing Insights: Managing Immune Homeostasis and Susceptibility to Illness

Laboratory testing can offer critical clinical insights to help control susceptibility and reactivity to acute infectious agents and autoimmune dysregulation. While currently top of mind in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, sustaining wellness through active maintenance of immunological homeostasis can be applied to our daily lives in any conditions. In this webinar, Dr. Chris Meletis, ND, reviews some of the science to maintaining healthy immune function:

  • Balance of the complement immune pathway as a trigger of cytokines
  • Role of mitochondrial performance and immune function
  • IgG food sensitivities and complement activation
  • Vitamin D and nutritional status
  • Clinical recommendations for cold and flu season

Just like daily hand washing, proper personal hygiene, and a solid dose of common sense applied to our lives 24/7/365, this current COVID-19 event is an opportunity to review what we as functional medicine providers address every day. We are in a unique position to empower our patients to understand that wellness pursuits are a series of life decisions. As Dr. Meletis shares with his patients, we all have a choice—to be proactive or reactivewhen it comes to sustaining wellness.
