    1. Hi Margaret,

      Dr Ruscio isn’t sharing that at the moment but additional materials like test codes, paperwork, forms, and protocols will be rolled out in a future practitioner training course.

  1. Hi, Thank you for all the amazing content Dr Ruscio and team 😊 Quick question and sorry if this is already answered elsewhere, but what does the abbreviation ‘Habx’ stand for? Just reading a recent case study and I see it used a few times. Looking forward to making my way through them all… This really is invaluable! Thanks a million.

    1. Hi Angie,

      It stands for Herbal Antibiotics. Thanks for the question, we’ll add it to the abbreviations list!
