Eric Dorninger ND, LAc

Lecture Overview

Have you ever had a patient who has chronic sinus congestion, gastrointestinal problems and frequent yeast infections who seems to catch the flu every year? What is the common link for the patient that heads to the ENT, the GI doc then over to the Gyn only to have their PCP send them back out for another referral?  "Mucosal Immunity."

Dr. Dorninger will lay out the complex NeuroEndocrineImmune web of our mucosal immune system and bring the latest in the peer reviewed literature.

Dr. Dorninger will share the “masters, regulators and needs” of our borders and explain how we can improve the intelligence of our mucosal immunity in a world of undesireable toxin, microbial and “Frankenfood” exposures.
