The reality is that it will continue to take more if we don’t start putting up our defenses, starting today. Dr. Jockers explains what inflammation is and why it is a necessary occurrence within the body. He shares the benefits of controlled inflammation, as well as the risks of chronic inflammation to our health. Understand how the autoimmunity is compromised and the ways to achieve a balanced immune system for a healthy microbiome so you can address chronic inflammation.

“The body knows how to heal itself. We just need to remove the interference and fasting is the best way to do that.”
