    Are parasites eating your patient? Millions of Americans are infected with an intestinal parasite at any given time. These pathogenic organisms have the power to destroy your patients’ intestinal tracts, rob their bodies of essential nutrients, and release dangerous toxins that can cause both minor ailments as well as serious and sometimes life-threatening conditions. Some of your patients may have been living with these parasitic infections for years, unaware of their presence and all the internal damage they are causing.

    In this webinar, Rahma Abdillah, BS, is joined by Angie Ates, ND, CNHP, CNC, CHS, MH, to discuss ways to help your patient detox the body of parasitic organisms and manage symptoms with our EndoPara Clear Program.

    This webinar will cover:

    • The background and history of different types of parasites, routes of transmission, and how they can damage the human body
    • The EndoPara Clear Program and how it combines nutraceuticals and targeted homeopathics for superior parasite detoxification results and temporary relief of symptoms related to parasite infestation
    • Clinical pearls, tips for diagnosing parasites, and patient success stories

    Don’t let your patients’ Lyme disease and other chronic infections tear them apart – teach them how to manage symptoms.

    The occurrence of Lyme disease and other chronic infections has spiked dramatically over the last few years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are 329,000 new cases of Lyme disease reported each year. Approximately 10 to 20 percent of people who are treated with antibiotics end up having disease symptoms that persist after the treatment.1 Symptoms can include fatigue, difficulty concentrating, diffuse pain, shallow breathing, seizures, and brief bouts of paralysis. The road to recovery can be long, difficult, and challenging enough to patients that it can interfere with their normal activities.

    In this webinar, Rahma Abdillah, BS will be joined by Daniel Schilling, DC to discuss ways to heal the body from the inside out and how DesBio’s products along with dietary and lifestyle management can help patients battling Lyme disease and other chronic infections. Dr. Schilling is a graduate of Northwestern College of Chiropractic. He uses his background in mechanical and system engineering to help his patients understand the interconnectedness of the systems in the human body.

    This webinar covers:

    • Lyme disease and its symptoms and how it can have major effects on the entire body
    • Strategies for assessing patients and combination approaches for managing symptoms
    • A detailed review of clinical case studies and an overview of suggested protocols, support products, and dietary and lifestyle recommendations to share with your patient

    DesBio is bringing our popular Lyme Day event to Nashville, TN on October 20, 2018! This one-day event provides practitioners the opportunity to learn from some of the nation’s foremost experts on Lyme and homeopathy. Once thought to be confined to the Northeast, Lyme and other tickborne illnesses appear to be on the rise within the southern United States. For patients experiencing symptoms of joint pain, brain fog, general malaise, and emotional instability, Lyme and its co-infections could be the possible culprit.

    In this educational event, expert practitioners will discuss Lyme disease and its symptoms, strategies for assessing patients, and combination approaches for managing symptoms. We will also cover DesBio’s unique Series Symptom Relief Protocol. Attendees will leave with a fundamental understanding of Lyme as well as clinical tools for how to manage their complex patients.

    Beware of the damp and the moist! There could be something spooky and dark growing in your patient’s closet, basement, crawl space or laundry room.

    According to studies, more than 50% of commercial buildings and homes in the U.S. have mold, potentially contributing to more than more than 50% of your patients’ illnesses.1 Typically, we think of outdoor pollution as detrimental to our health, but indoor air pollutants including mold and mycotoxins may be an even bigger risk to your patients’ health. Symptoms can range from mildly disruptive to serious and truly life-threatening if left untreated.

    In this webinar, Jeff Thomas, ND will discuss strategies for assessing patients, combination approaches for managing symptoms, and how DesBio’s products along with lifestyle management can help patients battling with mold and mycotoxin illness. Dr. Thomas is a licensed naturopath practicing at Northwest Wellness in Seattle, WA.

    This webinar covers:

    • The relationship between mycotoxins and chronic diseases and various approaches for screening mold and mycotoxins
    • How to identify possible mold exposure and how some molds can secrete mycotoxins
    • Mycotoxins and their clinical relevance, as well as the types of mycotoxins, their source, and health implication
    • Strategies for assessing patients and combination approaches for managing symptoms for patients with mold illness

    Lack of sleep may be affecting your patient’s health. According to the National Sleep Foundation’s inaugural Sleep Health Index, forty-five percent of Americans are affected by poor or insufficient sleep.1 Poor quality of sleep has been linked to all kinds of health problems, including excessive weight gain and a weakened immune system. Over time, continued sleep deprivation also raises the risk for mental health issues. Studies have shown that sleeping for less than 6 to 8 hours a night increases the mortality rate by about twelve percent.2

    In this webinar, Clair Dainard MS, CN, will discuss ways to help your patients sleep better and how DesBio’s products along with lifestyle management can help temporarily relieve associated symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.

    This webinar will cover:

    • Background information on the importance of sleep and how it can affect mood, stress, energy, and metabolism
    • How sleep disorders affect hormone imbalance which can lead to changes in the adrenal glands and suppression of thyroid function
    • DesBio’s sleep support products and how they can address some of the top sleep issues affecting your patients
    • An overview of suggested protocols and lifestyle recommendations
