Move Over Hormones, Peptides Are Here

Session Description:

Confused or curious about peptides? This introductory peptide lecture is for you! Dr. Kent Holtorf, recognized thought leader on peptides, will demystify the topic of peptides and provide real-world training on how to use peptides in your practice. With peptides becoming a foundational part of many integrative practices, this lecture is designed to get you up to speed on what you need to know and what you need to do to help your patients and your practice.  While many physicians pay thousands of dollars for short primers on how to use peptides, this lecture is absolutely free.

He has helped to demonstrate that much of the long-held dogma in endocrinology and infectious disease is inaccurate. He has lectured for prestigious medical societies across the United States and worldwide.
