By the end of this lecture, practitioners will know how to use mushrooms to modulate the immune system and adjust the body's response in different scenarios, where either an inadequate or exacerbated Th1 or Th2 mediated immune response is causing health problems, be it allergies, reoccurring infections or even autoimmune conditions. They will also learn about the trophorestorative qualities of certain mushrooms and their affinity to specific organs, to further enhance the pursued therapeutic action.
