Dr. Roca explains the complex science of brain health in easy-to-understand terms and suggests things you can do to make a difference. FREE.

Speaker: Integrative Medicine Specialist Henri Roca, MD
Inflammation plays a significant role in causing pain in muscles, tendons, joints, bones or discs, as well as fatigue, depression, diabetes, and heart disease. When these and other disease or dysfunctional states seem to be resistant to treatment, we must look more deeply into the web of interactions that drives how we function. This discussion takes us deeper into the processes and influence of inflammation. The bottom line: when dis-ease or dys-function occurs, look more deeply with a Functional Medicine approach to discover the role of inflammation and other underlying causes. FREE.
