About this course

Infectious diseases are some of our most frequent patient presentations. Being proficient at dealing with acute infections is an essential skill in natural clinical care. What is coming though is far more concerning. We are nearing the end of the antibiotic era and severe infections that are resistant to medical care will become common.

The proportion of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics has risen steeply during the last thirty years. Today, 63% of bacteria are not responding to traditional antibiotics. Simple infections will become increasingly difficult to shift and can escalate quickly. Having a robust, reliable immune system is life-saving, especially for the elderly and very young.

Natural medicine is perfectly suited to helping people with poor immunity and infectious diseases. Our immune systems are remarkably complex and constantly evolving. Herbal and natural solutions are ideal at boosting defense and fighting infections. In this Masterclass you will develop specific protocols and strategies to maintain infections resistance and to fight a wide range of organisms.

You will be learning the latest on the most frequently seen infections and how to best resolve these safely. You will get the best natural strategies to deal with urinary tract infections, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, otitis media, Epstein Barr, influenza, herpes, measles and many others.

We may be forgetting how important having a robust immune system is and the impact infectious diseases are having. Chronic lower respiratory diseases are the third leading cause of death in developed countries, and influenza and pneumonia are the 9th leading cause of death. Approximately 16-20% of cancers have an infectious cause. The Natural Infectious Diseases Masterclass gives you clear strategies to deal with the most common infections you see in practice.
