Glad to see Dr Cowans book in the stack. Bravo to you for including the taboo vaccine induced autoimmunity.
This sounds appealing.
Question 1) How long will access to the video presentations be granted afterwards? (I prefer to learn at my own pace, and during my own time)
Question 2) Will the video presentations be arranged as to allow convenient and easy access afterwards?
See, I have no problem paying for this knowledge; I am more than happy to pay. I just want some control over it. Because, most likely, I would not attend the live sessions.
