Can diet and other behavioral protocols affect the way the immune system functions and regulates? How does chronic inflammation play a role?
Within normal daily-life conditions we expect resilient health and vitality. But with added stressors in the mix and sub-optimal nourishment, underlying system weaknesses will be revealed.
How can we fix it?
Today’s consumers have real concerns and are paying attention. Experts weigh in on the changing market and nutritional needs.
