If you have ever wanted to learn about the nuts and bolts of Biomedical Interventions, then this is the event for you.

Geri Brewster plans to pack as much teaching as she can into two evenings. During one session, she will go over all the different dietary interventions including GFCF (Gluten Free Casein Free), SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), Feingold, Allergy Free (soy, yeast, etc). And if that's not too much information for you, she will also go over all the testing that will help you and your practitioner decide which diet and supplements might be best for you or your child. Then during the next session, Geri will walk you through the most common and poplular Biomedical Treatments beginning with some simple supplements such as Vitamin D and B12 continuing down the list to chelation and Hyperbaric Chamber. So no matter what the diagnosis is or isn't, this is an event for everyone.

Come even if you can only make one night. You can get the power point for the other night you miss.
