Course Outline:
Friday, November 4th, 2022   8:00 -10:00am

As low-level laser providers, we are an elitist group of doctors who are incorporating a modality that surpasses all others in its capacity to enhance patient recovery from more than just pain. The cellular effects of low-level laser therapy can regenerate tissue, re-awaken dormant neural circuits, and recover lost brain pathways. Most importantly, there is nearly always a reason to use Erchonia lasers on our patients. Join me in Orlando for an inspiring morning of laser applications, gut rebuilding protocols and case management in daily practice.

Learning Objectives:


•  Identify dysregulation in sympathetic, parasympathetic, autonomic, and enteric divisions of the nervous system.

•  Explain the critical role of nutrition in the gut brain axis

•  Incorporate low level laser into daily practice by gaining insight into the ubiquitous nature of the cellular effects

Topics Include:

Hour 1:
