Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are on the rise. High-risk groups include young adults and senior citizens. Accurate testing is essential for the detection of STIs. Treatment is becoming more difficult as pathogen resistance grows, so decreasing the risk of infection is vital. Lifestyle habits and other factors can further increase the risk of STI and bacterial vaginosis. While not all STIs have human studies that support natural treatment, several common infections do, and natural supports can help improve the vaginal microbiome, improving resistance to infection.
Join us for this CE webinar that will review risk factors, test options, and conventional pharmaceutical and natural approaches to STI treatment.
The webinar will cover:
