Inflammation is the primary defense in the body. It's also a major cause/contributing factor to almost all illness, disease and pain.

This class will take an in-depth look at the entire process from the biochemistry within the cell to manual techniques for both increasing and decreasing inflammation, and finally a larger look at an anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

The information will help therapists make informed decisions concerning when and if alteration of the inflammatory process is needed. We will look at how and why inflammation is beneficial, when it is not beneficial and finally we will discuss an anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I'm 100% confident that Transition Zones will improve your understanding of health and give you access to knowledge which can be applied in so many ways. But, if for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
How much time should I set aside for studying?
You're going to get the most out of the class if you're studying, thinking critically, and applying your knowledge. This course includes some of my best lectures, along with supplemental materials. If you really want to “own” the material, a good approximation of study-time is the college rule of thumb, one hour of lecture equals two hours of study time at home. Also know that once you register, the course is yours forever. You can start it whenever you want, take a break, and get back into it.
I'm not an herbalists, will your courses still be relevant?
We teach a lot about plant medicine at Heartstone, and earth connection in general – but no, you don't need to be an herbalist, or professional to benefit from this course. Many of our students are looking for ways to apply a better understanding of physiology for their own health – such as talking with doctors, or creating a pro-active health plan relying on their own knowledge.
How will I be able to get my questions answered?
Every student, at every level can send me a direct email. If your question is about the content in the course I encourage that you add to the discussion inside the course itself. In my course platform ruzuku there is a comments area for each video which is a great place to ask questions and generate some discussion. Students who want extra mentorship, and who want to explore the content in a private Facebook group can enroll in Transition Zones + Community. Then, each month for seven months, we will focus on one of the topics together. This also includes a live Q&A session for each of the topics. These Q&A sessions will be recorded and made available for students to download.
Do I need a textbook?
This material is at the cutting edge and most of it researched right from primary scientific journal articles. I have made those references available in each of the lessons at the end of the notes. If you want basic background information, I recommend Tortora and Derrickson’s, Principles of Anatomy & Physiology. Buy and older edition, they are much cheaper. If you want an advanced physiology textbook I use, Guyton & Hall’s, Textbook of Medical Physiology.
