Clinicians have long understood the immense impact the health of your gut has on things like weight, energy, depression, autoimmunity and more. With the recent boom in microbiota research we have learned much more about this connection. Like never before we understand how we can alleviate chronic health conditions and enhance well-being through improving the health of the gut.

However, with this boom has also come over speculation and ill-informed recommendations. This is very important because todays healthcare professional or consumer could unintentionally do harm.

This presentation will blend academic microbiota research with clinical research on digestive health. This will provide clinically relevant and evolutionarily sound recommendations for achieving optimum well-being via improving the health of your gut.
