Understanding How Our Body Works
Now more than ever, making conscious healthy lifestyle choices has become critical for improving our health. It is difficult to know how to make these choices without a basic understanding of how our body works and why our choices matter.

In the next webinar, Dr. Kumar will explain the body's main systems, their interconnectedness, and how healthy lifestyle choices support all the fundamental mechanisms of the body. The environment we create due to these choices either creates health or promotes disease. Once you have a clearer understanding of your body's operating systems, you will be able to be sort through the mass of information available with clarity and consciousness. Learning how to enhance this process is the key to good health.
