By shedding this knowledge through training and application, the “wholism” approach has already become instrumental in the management and treatment of chronic mold, lyme, small intestinal bowel overgrowth, mental illnesses/conditions, and much more.  Dr Keiles will be presenting on her amazing research using QEEG with FSM and proving that there is real and amazing changes that occur!  Want to hear even more?  Join her for her Pre-Con Course to delve into how the brain can be ‘seen’ through QEEG and how microcurrent can be a miraculous intervention for the brain!
