Description

In this lecture, Professor Daniel Davis charts the ground-breaking scientific quest to understand how the immune system fights disease and enables the body to heal itself. He reveals how all of this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary approach to medicine and well-being. ‘The Beautiful Cure’ tells a dramatic story of detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and of the mysteries that remain, and of lives sacrificed and saved.

Presented by an expert at the forefront of this adventure, this talk will present a revelatory new understanding of the human body and what it takes to be healthy.
