About the Presenter:
Dr. Weiss became the first Cardiologist as a Naturopathic Physician, completing non-invasive cardiovascular hospital-based training in the Columbia Hospital system, the Arizona Heart Institute, and the Arizona Heart Hospital.

Dr. Weiss kept privileges at the Arizona Heart Hospital, while opening the breakthrough Scottsdale Heart Institute, where he helped thousands of patients reduce medication safely, eliminate the need for angioplasty, ablation, bypass surgery, and reverse heart disease. The International Association of Health Care Practitioners and the International Association of Cardiologists named Dr. Weiss, a “Leading Physician in the World” in 2012; a distinction given to under 1000 physicians each year. Dr. Weiss shifted his focus in 2014 to inflammation, genetics, and the science of intractable conflict, as he joined Artis International as a Senior Fellow and Director of their Center for Health and Medicine and launched Peace Possible™, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching the neurochemistry of radicalization, cycles of poverty, cycles of violence, and anti-microbial resistance. Dr. Weiss has presented original research to cardiologists, researchers, and government officials in 15 countries including University of Oxford’s Center for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict and Cleveland Heart Lab.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss foods, nutrients, and herbs that can help support the immune defenses and create strong foundational wellness.*

OCTOBER 14TH, 2020
Breathe Easy: Botanicals for Lung Health & Respiratory Support* with Dr. Ellen Kamhi, PhD, RN, AHG-RH, AHN-BC

FREE Webinar
The respiratory system is the first link to life. Most humans cannot survive without breathing for more than three minutes. Optimum lung and respiratory system function can be challenged by many factors, including an overabundance of mucous and secretions caused by food and environmental sensitivities, particles that may enter the lungs through air pollution, and the invasion from offending microbes. Botanicals have been used throughout human history to help people support their respiratory health so they can keep breathing easy.* Let us explore the ancient folklore and the scientific mechanisms of action that indicate the efficacy of the use of botanicals for lung health & respiratory support.*

Herbs discussed include Oil of Oregano, Yarrow, Chinese Skullcap, Boswellia, Mullein, Plantain, Schisandra, Nigella, and Horehound.
