The Immunity Challenge: Surviving and Thriving with Evidence-Based Natural Approaches to Immune Health

8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Brennan Hall, University of Toronto

According to a recent Health Canada survey, approximately 71% of
Canadians have used natural health products to complement the
conventional health care they receive.  What is the potential role
of natural health approaches in the prevention and treatment of
"superbugs" and other antibiotic resistant viruses, allergies, colds
and flu, and in the event of a potential avian flu pandemic? What is
the scientific evidence behind many of the popular - and some of the
lesser known - natural health products being marketed for immune
health? How can you strengthen your overall immune health for optimal

The Immunity Challenge brings together a multidisciplinary roster of
physicians, immunologists and naturopaths to discuss and debate these
essential questions.

Hosted by the Holistic Health Research Foundation of Canada, in
association with the Ontario Society of Physicians for Complementary
Medicine, this day-long educational event is designed for the public,
as well as health professionals from across the spectrum of
conventional and complementary/integrative health care.
