Many of our patients experience daily immune system challenges, and children are no exception!  Stress, busy school & extracurricular schedules, and erratic or poor eating habits can all impact the body’s natural defense mechanisms.

On top of that, there’s exposure in schools to a whole new host of germs.

Kids’ immune systems really have to ramp up for the fall! 

In this free webinar, Jaclyn Chasse, ND, Vice President of Medical Education at Emerson Ecologics, will look at the top ways we can support the immune health of pediatric patients as they move into the fall & winter seasons.

Dr. Chasse discusses:

  • The most common pediatric immune support questions Emerson's Ask the Experts hear most often from our clinical community (and our answers)
  • The Top 5 immune support products she recommends for children, both for long-term and short-term support (a.k.a. What every family should have in its medicine cabinet!)
  • How to make safe recommendations for children, including appropriate dosing guidelines
  • Other recommendations for holistic immune support, including dietary changes, lifestyle support, and at-home therapies

Why do some women seem to move easily through menopause while others suffer greatly? Why do some menopausal women respond well to hormone therapy while others get little relief?
