Nutritional Immunology: A Masterclass

With international Expert Dr. Robert Rountree, MD

Lecture Outline:

It has been known for centuries that what we eat has a profound effect on our immunity. Deficiencies of macro and micronutrients can impair the immune system’s ability to fight off infection and heal wounds. Overconsumption of certain foods and food additives can cause immune dysregulation, leading to obesity, cancer and chronic inflammatory disorders. In contrast, certain naturally occurring compounds can down regulate or modulate immune function. The emerging field of nutritional immunology encompasses all of these issues. This presentation will review the fundamental principles of innate and acquired immunity, discuss the pathways that disrupt normal function and explore the use of naturally occurring substances to modulate the immune response and improve health.

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify the influences that nutrition has on immune function
  • Review the physiology of the innate immune response to foreign and self antigens
  • Examine the molecular mechanisms by which nutrients and botanicals can modulate the innate response
  • Explore the role of diet, nutrients, and botanicals in restoring healthy immune function
