The Pathogen Puzzle: Navigating Chronic Infection and the Disease Connection

FEBRUARY - MARCH 2020

About

Advances in the understanding of contagious disease, medicine and hygiene has near eradicated many infectious diseases. Despite this, we are all still affected by infections throughout life, and while some are self-limiting, others have the potential to cause chronic, and at times debilitating disease. Infections have been implicated in prevalent conditions such as cardiovascular disease and myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Likewise, autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis have been associated with infections. This seminar delves into the role pathogens play in these conditions, to provide practical strategies Practitioners can use to support patients affected by infection and chronic disease.

Whether patients are affected by dysbiosis, fungal, viral or bacterial infections, it can be challenging to determine the source of infection, and the best treatment strategy. Moreover, when stealth or co-infections are involved, understanding how and when to test and treat patients becomes paramount. This seminar will offer practical, clinical tools to assess and address overt and stealth infections, advancing patients journey back to health.

  • Explore a comprehensive framework that is easily applied to the treatment of both simple and complex infection, and improve host resilience to such infection.
