 Attendees will learn about specific biotoxins which trigger a cascade of effects in the body, leading to persistent inflammation. Topics include how and why those effects come about, how to measure them, and the detailed, progressive protocols that can be used to correct each step of the pathways that have become imbalanced.

Saturday’s panel of medical experts will answer pre-submitted questions about treatment and treatment-related issues. Sunday’s medical panel will respond to medical professional questions. See website for details.
Who: Featured guest, Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker MD, is a pioneer in exploring the innate immune system and its pivotal role in inflammation and chronic illness. His Maryland clinic may be the only one in the country solely devoted to biotoxin research that has unveiled what happens when people spend time in water-damaged buildings. He will select a few medical case studies to review with medical professionals on Sunday. His book Surviving Mold will be available.
