In 2001, shortly after starting her private practice, Medicine in Balance in Philadelphia, Wendy Warner, M.D. realized that although she was trained to do a lot of medicine, much of it wasn’t relevant to getting and staying healthy. After training with herbalists and energy workers, she eventually became involved with the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, the organization that certifies physicians in integrative holistic medicine. In Dr. Warner’s collaborative holistic medical practice, she provides conventional gynecologic care as well as holistic medical consultations for women, men and teens. She has also been an invited guest on the Dr. Oz Show to discuss functional medicine.
Boosting Your Immunity for Dummies, the book that Dr. Warner co-authored with Dr. Kellyann Petrucci, provides plenty of practical tips and techniques for supercharging your immune system to resist illnesses and prevent diseases. From how to stock your kitchen cupboards to how to stay healthy when you travel, from reversing disease to exercising wisely, the book helps readers understand the benefits of living an immune-boosting lifestyle. It also explains the underlying science of how the immune system works and pays special attention to what happens when the immune system gets off track and what to do about it.
