Vitamin C Therapy: The Increasing Applications of Vitamin C
Presenter: Tom Levy MD, JD
Vitamin C therapy, by intravenous administration and via multiple other forms of administration, has been utilized for many decades around the world, predominantly in the clinical setting. Very gradually, it is also being administered in the hospitalized setting. Its benefits as both a monotherapy and as an important adjunctive therapy in a wide array of medical conditions are unparalleled in comparison to any other single agent or intervention. Today, even more applications of vitamin C are being researched and increasingly utilized, and even more dramatic results are consistently being seen. These new applications, as well as a pertinent review of its traditional applications along the results achieved, will be reviewed in some detail. The proposed role for vitamin C as part of any treatment protocol for any condition will also be discussed.

Dental or Visceral? How Sugar, Food, Allergies Affect Teeth
Presenter: Louisa Williams, DC, ND
When we have pain in our teeth or swollen and inflamed gums, we typically think we have a dental problem, but that is not always the case. Chronic gut dysbiosis, liver and biliary congestion, intermittent gastritis, and pancreatic enzyme deficiency can also generate disturbing tooth and gum symptoms. Although, it is important to consult with your biological dentist when these signs and symptoms arise, it is just as essential to assess your lifestyle and determine if you are undermining your dental health with a toxic diet, an undiagnosed food allergy, or simply just not addressing your disturbing health concerns with a holistic physician or practitioner. In this session, you will learn a few simple treatments for healing chronic (and often intermittent and difficult to diagnose) tooth and gum pain and inflammation, through addressing a very typical root cause — the impaired and dysfunctioning organs in your body.
