This course material was developed over a period of more than twenty years, and delivered in various formats to hundreds of intermediate students of herbalism, nutrition, and naturopathic medicine as part of pre-clinical training. Foods in the diet which evoke an immunological inflammatory response are nearly universal in modern chronic disease, and removal can in many cases cause symptoms of even some serious diseases to fall away. Cases presented in this audio course include congestive heart failure, panic disorder, systemic lupus, multiple sclerosis, severe eczema, systemic lymphadenopathy, and a dozen more, which were cured or greatly improved with removal and strict avoidance of an offending food. This course uses current scientific concepts of digestion, immunity, and autoimmunity to explain the "dotted line" between an immunological response in the gut, and systemic manifestations of disease. Assessment, with an emphasis on interview and examination skills rather than imprecise laboratory antibody testind, is emphasized. A complete review of lifestyle factors, nutrition, and herbal materia medica and formulation strategies for inflammation and the Leaky Gut Syndrome are included. This course prepares you with the complete skill set to assess and coach a patient through removal of an offending food.
