Digestion, Elimination and how to feed the Microbiome lecture was presented by Dr. Gary Kracoff and our integrative and functional dietitian, Bridgitte Carroll. Poor digestion and elimination are the underlying causes in most of our chronic health problems; allergies, hormonal, adrenal and thyroid imbalances,weight control, inflammation and sleep issues to list a few.
They discuss some common problems and offer some suggestions to help restore normal digestion and elimination, how proper selection of food and proper supplementation is necessary to heal the gut, fuel the body, and keep
your microbiome in balance.
