Regenerus co-hosts this webinar in conjunction with our partner, Cyrex, a clinical immunology laboratory specialising in functional immunology and autoimmunity.
Join our guest speaker, Dr Chad Larson, a leading American physician, in conversation with Robyn Puglia, for an educational webinar on the mucosal immune system.
The webinar is entitled: The Mucosal Immune System: Your immune system’s first responder and early warning system
- why the mucosal immune system so important to be aware of and consider
- how practitioners can objectively measure and evaluate the mucosal immune system using Cyrex’s Array 14: Mucosal Immune Reactivity Screen
- how practitioners can use the Array 14’s findings to inform the diagnosis of autoimmune health conditions?
How will this talk benefit me?
Home to a whopping 70% of the immune system, the mucosal system is the body's first line of immune defence, which protects the body against a host of antigens that live in the mouth, skin, lungs, and gut. Our mucosal immune system sees more activity in a single day than the systemic immune system sees in an entire lifetime.
It is therefore a very big, primary and influential part of the immune system that demands enquiry in order to treat any chronic or immune-mediated condition including autoimmunity and viral infection.
This webinar is an opportunity for clinicians to improve their practice by becoming more equipped to understand, analyse and evaluate their patients’ mucosal immune system, and therefore internal health.
More about the mucosal immune system: The mucosal immune system is the urinary, respiratory, and gut tract’s main defence mechanism.
When the mucosal immune system is healthy, containing adequate levels of mucus and of IgA, it is able to stop any antigens entering the body.
However, when inflamed (caused by a range of environmental factors such as stress, gut dysfunction, dietary proteins and chemical toxicity) the mucosal immune system becomes less effective and starts to produce damaging immune reactions such as intestinal dysfunction and gut dysbiosis.
If unaddressed, continued inflammation of the mucosal immune system is likely to result in a wide range of chronic immune illnesses and conditions.
More about Cyrex’s Array 14:
Cyrex’s Array 14 helps you to thoroughly assess the mucosal immune system’s behaviour - including those negative immune reactions. Understanding how to apply and interpret Array 14 will allow you to create precise and personalised treatment plans for your patients instead of just cookie cutter gut health protocols.
