Lingering Pathogenic Factors: An Interview with Soma Glick OMD


Lingering pathogenic factors (LPFs) are the cause of some of the most common pediatric conditions we treat in the clinic.  

LPFs occur due to vaccines, antibiotics or illnesses that don't resolve completely. When pathogens linger in the body it depletes the child's Qi and makes them predisposed to frequent illness or recurrent infection.

In a worst-case scenario, an untreated LPF can remain in the body causing havoc throughout a person's life. That's why it's so important to diagnose and treat LPFs early to help the body recover completely and restore balance and health.

Helping Patients Recover from LPFs

Recently I interviewed pediatric acupuncture specialist, Soma Glick, L.Ac., OMD, about LPFs. She shares her knowledge on how to identify and eliminate LPFs to support health and healing in children. We discuss acupuncture points as well as recommended herbal formulas to eliminate LPFs for good.
