Session 1: Building Resilience with Adaptogen and Immune Herbs - Friday, October 23rd - 4:00pm - 6:00pm CST Adaptogens are an amazing class of botanicals that support the body’s resistance to physical, environmental, emotional and biological stressors. They are often used to support patients suffering from fatigue and stress, which means their unique role in supporting immune health is often overlooked. In this session Professor Kerry Bone will explore the wide range of adaptogenic, adrenal tonic and immune supporting herbs, explaining their unique actions and where they are indicated to support patients to thrive in the ‘new normal’. Session 2: Insufficient Sleep: A Health Epidemic - Friday, October 23rd - 6:00pm - 8:00pm CST Good sleep is vital for good health – we simply cannot live without it. Healthy sleep helps restore the immune, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems; maintaining mood, memory, and cognitive function and many other body processes. It’s estimated that up to 80% of Americans have trouble sleeping at least once a week with 33% suffering most nights, plus over 40% of Americans report feeling sleepy during the day.

She will outline her clinical and botanical strategies, including patient cases.
