Course Description

This course will review components of the immune system and address the function of organs and body systems that are the most important to the immune system. The course will review what antibiotic resistance is and the mechanisms by which various microbes have become resistance. We will examine the recent literature on the antimicrobial activities of essential oils of plants and other parts of plants

The course will present the scientific literature on how plants work as chemical drug makers naturally, as they have to defend themselves from viruses, bacteria, mold and fungus. It will highlight which parts of the plants concentrate the anti-microbe properties, and how some plants work on some microbes more than other.

The course will review the concept of immune builders, such as the role of vitamin D in immunity and how to supplement patients for optimal health.  We will explore Ethnopharmacology scientific research from around the world conducted on plants, animal tissues, vitamins and minerals that can work to decrease issues from pathogens.

This course will highlight faculty members’ clinical prevention and treatment experiences and discuss drug therapies currently in the news including choloquine, remdesivir and interleukin-6 (IL-6) receptors.
