Speaker: Mary Bove. Botanicals interact with the human immune system in a variety of ways, eliciting multiple types of physiological responses: from activating macrophages and balancing helper T1 and T2 cells to inhibiting inflammation by blocking pro-inflammatory cytokines. Understanding some of the basic pharmacological strengths of specific phytochemicals, the seasonal variation of pharamacologic activity, and the application in pediatric healthcare gives the clinician options for using immune botanicals as rapid response agents in acute situations (such as acute respiratory infections) and as long-term immune building agents (in allergies and other chronic conditions).
