LOW DOSE IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR CHRONIC "INFECTIONS"
Friday, September 15: 10:15AM - 11:45AM
 
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Some chronic conditions are thought to be "infections" when they are actually something quite different. This lecture will discuss the important distinction between a true infection and a chronic immune-mediated inflammatory condition. Examples used to illustrate this concept will include Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Acne, Genital Herpes and others. The treatment approach to chronic immune-mediated disorders should not be based on antimicrobial therapies. Low Dose Immunotherapy (LDI) is a fairly new treatment technique for chronic inflammatory conditions that can dramatically improve these conditions through immune modulation rather than antimicrobial strategies. Case examples will be used to illustrate this.
