This was brought to you by the FX Medicine editorial team.

Autoimmune conditions are complex disease states. Their development and severity are often influenced by a broad range of factors including genetics, environment, immune dysfunction, infection dysbiosis, toxicity, intestinal hyper-permeability, deficiencies, dietary factors and stress.

The aim of this seminar is to delve deep into the known imbalances that integrative medicine is able to modify in an attempt to improve the health of patients suffering autoimmune-related illness.
