Integrative Practitioner Digital Summit
Workshop: Clinical Indicators for Detoxification
September 20, 2022 1:30 – 2:00pm ET ADD TO CALENDAR
In the practice of environmental medicine, managing complex clinical cases requires effective strategies that can be applied in any integrative practice. Most patients who have a chronic inflammatory disease will benefit from detoxification. However, it can be daunting to know what toxins to look for and where to start. Environmental burdens often remain invisible yet are influential in the many facets of health. This workshop will demonstrate a clinical thinking process through discussion of case studies and treatment strategies.
