This week at Open Circle, Dr. Beatriz Gallagher presents “Your Immune System and the Battles Within You.” The video will be available for viewing Sunday, September 6, 10:30 a.m. at opencircleajijic.org.
Essential for your survival, the immune system can distinguish between self and non-self, friend or foe, and its powerful chemicals can destroy sick cells and pathogens. It is a complex system always at work, but it can also turn against you and attack healthy tissues by mistaken identity. Dr. Gallagher will tell you what compromises its integrity and how to feed it properly to keep it humming.
Dr. Gallagher obtained a Bachelor’s degree in science and biochemistry and a Master’s degree in human nutrition. She also holds a diplomate in Chinese Medicine and a PhD in Integrative Medicine and Clinical Nutrition. She moved to the Chapala area in 2010 and has since maintained a private practice here.
