On July 2nd at 11:30 AM we will be having Dr. Katherine Oldfield give a presentation on “Immune Competence and Our Microbiome - Who, What and Why you want this now”.
Our members will be attending this presentation via ZOOM and we will also broadcast her presentation on Facebook for interested  parties at https://www.facebook.com/events/333826660955467 
Dr Oldfield notes that as we begin to open up BC and mingle with more folks, optimizing our immune system is a timely topic. In the Kootenays we have local food, wonderful gardens and plenty of room to roam in the outdoors. This is a perfect setting for working on your immune system.
Dr Oldfield will cover, a quick recap of how our immune system work, important takeaways to improve immune function, how and why it's important to improve diet & incorporate local, homegrown and fermented foods, decrease stress, get adequate exercise, and optimize our gut biome and important nutrients and herbs.
Dr Redfield notes that this is not a talk about COVID-19 or treatments for COVID-19. Rather, this is to help empower you to improve your immune system.
