The respiratory system, divided between the upper and lower, is complex. Each day 12,000 quarts of gas is moved into and out of the respiratory system. The primary function is to bring oxygen to the blood stream so our cells can sustain life. Pathologies of the upper and lower systems range from acute disorders such as the common cold, influenza and pneumonia, to chronic ailments like COPD, asthma, emphysema and allergies.
These illnesses affect us all, such as the common cold which can be caused by over 200 different viruses. Or asthma, where 300 million people worldwide suffer from this disease. Here you will learn the difference between bacterial, viral and fungal microbes causing pathologies and how to treat each based on the energetics of the disease. Through expectoration, dilation of the bronchia’s, stimulation, relaxation, anti-allergenics, anti-inflammatories, and more.
In this two-part webinar, Thomas will go over the anatomy and physiology of the upper and lower respiratory tract. And give you a basic understanding of you how to identify the particular pathologies. Alongside each, we will go over in-depth plans on how to assist the client to heal their disorder. This will include preventative measures, optimizing the diet, balancing the gut, herbal treatments, what to avoid, nutrient supplements, exercise, and associations with emotional issues.

All of the classes are recorded from a webinar series. The recordings, handouts and resources, are available in the online classroom. Students will have access for a minimum of three years to all materials.
