7-Week Online Workshop: How to Boost Immunity Naturally with Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac. beginning on January 31, 2021
How to Boost Immunity Naturally – Live Q&A
Our live Q&A has ended but you can watch the replay now!
What if you could be less fearful of disease and more confident in your ability to prevent it?
Given the spiraling fears about pathogens, viruses, and diseases (and the 24/7 news cycle that feeds them), you might be convinced that:
There’s nothing you can do to change the course of infection.
You’re a sitting duck with few options and little hope of preventing infection.
It’s just a matter of time before you succumb to serious illness.
This thinking results in:
Rising anxiety and rash, fear-based decisions
Ineffective, short-term strategies that do little to address or prevent illness
A serious reduction in your quality of life
Infection is not the same as sickness.
The fact that pathogens exist isn’t the problem. And being solely focused on the “enemy” isn’t the solution.
We’ve got cultural tunnel vision around pathogens and disease, with every new strain and variant getting the kind of attention that usually accompanies the launch of a new iPhone.
We’re also singularly focused on which external factors can help us cope with disease. And while timely medical intervention can and has saved lives, that doesn’t mean you’re powerless in the meantime. You can do a lot to strengthen your innate ability to fight disease.
You’re so much stronger than you think.
Your immune system is incredibly powerful and adaptive—and by keeping it firing on all pistons, you can do a lot to protect yourself from pathogens if and when you encounter them.
Time to stop living in fear of disease and start doing all you can to prevent it. And there’s a lot you can do.
What if you knew…
How to strengthen your immune system naturally?
What to eat (and avoid) to heal your gut and boost your immunity?
What to do to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection—and protocols for when you’re exposed?
The latest technologies and tools for boosting natural immunity?
By applying well-researched and proven strategies for boosting immune function, you can change your body’s response to infection—and your response to the rapidly changing world around you.
Join us for our live, 7‑week workshop
How to Boost Immunity Naturally
Discover safe and powerful strategies for optimizing your immune system and keeping infection—and fear—at bay.
This deep-dive workshop will give you the insights, strategies, tools, and support you need to optimize your immune system, prevent and address infections, and protect yourself against the growing number of immune challenges we face in the modern world.
This powerful, step-by-step program is designed to help you:
Naturally fortify your immune system.
Improve your energy and vitality.
Stay healthy all year round.
Get back control of your health.
Gain insight into how your body responds to disease—and what you can do to improve it.
Know how to keep your immune system primed and ready to face off with whatever you encounter.
Change the way you see your choices and habits so that you can live your life—not live in fear.
This program was created by a globally renowned clinician, bestselling author, and widely respected authority in the field of Functional Medicine.
As the founder of the Kresser Institute and the ADAPT training programs, Chris Kresser has personally treated thousands of patients with immune-related challenges and trained over 2,000 practitioners and health coaches in more than 40 countries around the world in his unique approach.
You don’t need more information. You need better information.
Solid, trustworthy information about how to naturally boost your immunity is hard to come by. At one end of the spectrum, you have endless information: free blogs, podcasts, and social media posts, which are inconsistent at best and downright dangerous at worst. On the other end, you have working one-on-one with a Functional Medicine practitioner, which is a fantastic option but financially out of reach for most people.
Finally, a natural immunity resource that is both trustworthy and affordable.
Chris created this workshop to offer an evidence-based, reliable approach to naturally boosting immunity, including the specific resources and tools he has used in his practice for the last 10+ years—now in an accessible format, for a fraction of the cost.
Join us to get your immune system operating at peak capacity.
The course is spread out over 7 weeks to make it easy to fit into your busy life.
Here’s some of what you’ll learn:
Why natural immunity is important—especially in the COVID-19 era
The most important factors for building natural immunity
The most potent (and safe) supplements for building immunity and protecting against infection
The importance of gut health for immunity—and how to heal your gut
Specific protocols for preventing and addressing colds, flu, and COVID-19

Weekly video sessions
You’ll receive a video lesson each week that’s jam-packed with practical, actionable strategies for optimizing your immune system. Each new video is released on Monday at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, but you can watch anytime.

Join the How to Boost Immunity Naturally Workshop, starting January 31st
Here’s a more in-depth look at what will be covered in each of the 7 weekly modules:
Natural immunity basics
Surprisingly, there’s almost no discussion in the mainstream media and medical establishment about how the immune system works and how to support immunity naturally. In week 1, we kick things off with a deep dive into the fundamentals of natural immunity, covering topics like:
Why natural immunity is critical—now more than ever
What it means to shift from a “pathogen focus” to an “ecosystem focus”
The 9 pillars of natural immunity
How you can take charge of your immune health
Natural immunity for COVID-19
Most scientists now believe that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, will become endemic—which means that it’s here to stay and will circulate each year like colds and flu. While vaccines and pharmaceuticals will continue to play an important role, research has shown that our overall health, nutrient status, physical activity, and other factors are also critical in determining the outcome of COVID-19 infection. In this module, you’ll discover:
Why natural immune support is crucial for COVID-19
Essential steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection
What to do if you’re exposed to SARS-CoV-2
Evidence-based nutrients and botanicals for COVID-19 support
Natural immunity for colds and flu
While most of our attention is currently focused on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, there are many other circulating viruses that we’re exposed to each year, including the viruses that cause colds and flu. Most mainstream sources suggest that there’s nothing we can do to prevent or treat these infections other than over-the-counter (OTC) remedies that aim to alleviate the symptoms. In this module, you’ll learn:
The shortcomings (and risks) of OTC cold and flu remedies
How to stay healthy during cold and flu season
The best nutrients and botanicals for preventing and addressing colds and flu
Specific protocols to follow with early exposure and symptom onset
The principles of an immune-boosting diet
We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” That’s especially true when it comes to the immune system, which requires more than 40 micronutrients to function properly. Unfortunately, the Standard American Diet is depleted of nutrients and full of things that weaken our immunity, like sugar, industrial seed oils, and other processed and refined foods. In this module, you’ll discover:
The 3 fundamental principles of an immune-boosting diet
The most important micronutrients for immunity—and where to find them in food
9 potent “immunity superfoods” to include in your diet
How to use food as medicine for your immune system
The gut–immune connection
Did you know that scientists now believe that over 70 percent of our immune system resides in our gut? In fact, our immune systems are only as healthy as our guts—yet our gut health is under continuous attack in the modern world, thanks to processed foods, antibiotics, environmental toxins, and stress. In this module, you’ll learn:
The vital connection between gut health and immune function
The most important steps to take to heal your gut
How to incorporate bone broth, fermented foods, and fermentable fiber into your diet
When (and how) to use probiotics and prebiotics
Lifestyle essentials for natural immunity
Diet and nutrients are certainly important when it comes to natural immunity. But many other factors are just as essential—and sometimes even more important—including sleep, physical activity, stress management, how we breathe, and more. In this module, you’ll discover:
The key lifestyle and behavior strategies for boosting immunity naturally
How to breathe to support immune function
Tips for improving the quality and duration of your sleep
Why managing stress is critical for immune function and how to do it
Advanced immune-boosting strategies, including infrared light, sauna, and more
Once you’ve covered all the natural immunity basics, it’s time to move on to more advanced tools and strategies. These include technologies like infrared light/photobiomodulation, sauna, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, improving indoor air quality, and parasympathetic stimulation. We’ll separate fact from fad and discuss the importance of mindset and cultivating resilience for immune function. In this module, you’ll learn:
How infrared light stimulates and regulates immune function
How to use sauna and other heat therapies to boost immunity
Why indoor air quality is critical for natural immunity and how to improve it
The surprising connection between mindset and immunity
