Presented by Case Adams, PhD, Naturopath


This webinar will take you from the basics of microbes that cause disease to solutions probiotics present. This recorded webinar lecture series of information-packed video in ten lesson modules includes an interactive forum and reading material, and open contact with the instructor. It is designed to create expertise in the world of microorganisms, the diseases they cause, and the potential of probiotics as treatments as documented from clinical research.

Webinar reveals:

Microbe types, shapes and anatomy
Microbes that cause disease
All about our microbiome
How antibiotic resistance develops
Probiotic species and strains
How probiotics combat disease
How to supplement probiotics
The many probiotic foods
Many surprising prebiotics
All about pasteurization
How infections grow
Discover natural antibiotics




The webinar series of ten lectures videos and interactive forum is presented by Case Adams, a naturopath and author of 25 books on natural healing.

Regular cost: $89.00.  Discounted price (subject to change): $29.00.

A complimentary PDF version of the book, “Probiotics: Protection Against Infection” is included with webinar enrollment. Money-back satisfaction guaranteed for 30 days from enrollment date (and you can keep the book even if you cancel).

Syllabus for the webinar:

Course Description: Principles of endogenous probiotic and pathogenic microbes, including bacteria, fungi, microscopic parasites and viruses. Species and traits are examined, using a series of recorded lectures together with illustrations, research and examples. Diseases caused by pathogenic microbes will be described. Relationship between the immune system and probiotics will provide focus on probiotic treatment. Functions and identification of probiotic species and the forms they come in will be described. Diseases treated by probiotics will be examined. A survey of the microbiome, probiotic foods and prebiotics will be discussed in detail.

Course Objectives:
By the end of this course, students should develop the following skills and knowledge and be able to:
• Identify the major microbes that inhabit the body
• Differentiate between healthy and pathogenic microbes
• Identify the major pathogenic microbes
• Identify major diseases caused by pathogenic microbes
• Examine the research showing how certain diseases may be treated with probiotics
• Know how fermented (probiotic) foods are made
• Utilize probiotic supplementation therapeutically
• Understand our microbiome
• Identify prebiotics and the foods that contain them

Course Lessons:

1. Introduction to Microbes

2. Some Diseases Caused by Microbes

3. Our Body’s Probiotics

4. The Basics of Antibiotics

5. Pasteurization and the Germ Theory

6. The Probiotic Species

7. The Major Pathogenic Microbes

8. Supplementing Probiotics

9. Treating and Preventing Disease with Probiotics

10. Prebiotics and our Microbiome

Text: The course is accompanied by the book, “Probiotics: Protection Against Infection” by Case Adams (ISBN13-978-0-981604558). A complimentary PDF copy of the book is provided with each course purchase.

Quizzes: Each video contains a short voluntary interactive quiz at the end. The questions are intended to add to ones understanding of the content.
