The day, which is sponsored by Rio Trading, looks at ‘the immune system: cause and solution to chronic diseases’ and will feature five expert speakers on immune conditions:

Dr Philip Kielman

Understanding the basics of the immune system is necessary to appreciate how internal and external factors alter immune function. Many factors play important roles as to how our body will respond when faced with immune challenges.

International speaker, pharmacist and author, Dr Philip Kieler, will begin the day with his discussion into factors that can help us to enhance the immune system, and whether it is both the cause and solution in chronic disease.

Gail Lummis

Gail, who has since achieved the position of the UK Accredited Trainer and as a Master Practitioner of BioMeridian/Innovative Health Technologies health screening systems, will speak at the conference on ‘identifying stressors in relation to the immune system and chronic disease’.
