All disease begins in the gut - and some powerful cures can be found there too. The answer to protecting our health does not come from a pill, procedure, or technological breakthrough, but from the grocery cart, the garden, and the end of the fork. Our digestive tracts host our microbiome and our microbiome hosts our power to fight disease. Dr. Robynne Chutkan, integrative gastroenterologist and the bestselling author of Gutbliss, The Microbiome Solution, and The Bloat Cure, will focus on the connection between our gut, our microbiome, and our immune system.
- Describe the role of the microbiome in maintaining health and creating disease
- Decipher the intimate and essential connection between the gut and the immune system
- Discuss how to harness the power of gut microbes to improve health
