Antibiotic Resistance: What's Next? 


With the loss of the last class of antibiotics used to treat methicillin resistance, we are facing what we have known for some time: the end of the antibiotic era.

It is time now to drop the paradigm of single use synthetic antibiotics and to apply our knowledge of plant based antibiotics to both simple and complex bacterial infections. These webinars will cover the pharmacology of antibiotic resistance and the clinical application of botanicals and homeopathy in both acute and chronic infections.

Learn from experts in the field of antibiotics, antivirals, persistent and recurring infections

Jeffrey Novack, PhD earned his Ph.D. in pharmacology from the University of Washington School of Medicine (Department of Pharmacology) in signal transduction. He did post-doctoral research in immunology and tyrosine kinase signaling at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and later taught pharmacology, immunology, infectious disease, and pathology at the medical school level for 13 years.

Dr. Novack currently is on the faculty at Pacific Northwest University where he teaches immunology, portions of pathology, and pharmacology. He has done research on the effects of PSK on immune function in mice and humans and is interested in the effect of natural products on the innate and adaptive immunity and on inflammation.



Darin Ingels, ND is a respected leader in natural medicine with numerous publications, international lectures and more than 25 years experience in the healthcare field. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in medical technology from Purdue University and his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Ingels completed a residency program at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. He is a licensed naturopathic physician in the State of Connecticut and State of California, where he maintains practices in both states. Dr. Ingels is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the California Naturopathic Doctors Association, the Connecticut Naturopathic Physicians Association, the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Medicine and the American Academy of Environmental Medicine He is a former Board director for the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Exam (NPLEX) as the chair of Microbiology and Immunology and currently serves as a Board director for the American Association of Naturopathic Medicine.

Dr. Ingels’ practice focuses on chronic immune dysfunction, including allergies, asthma, autism, Lyme disease, recurrent or persistent infections and other genetic or acquired immune problems. He uses diet, nutrients, herbs, homeopathy and immunotherapy to help his children achieve better health.
