From,  obesity, to autism, to depression and mental health, to autoimmune thyroiditis, there were two underlying themes that ran through the conference:  You don’t have to be an expression of your genetic makeup and its all in the gut baby.  I had privilege of personally meeting and speaking with  DR. Gerard Mullin – GI expert, JJ Virgin,-Nutrition and fitness expert,  Dr. Isabella  Wentz, thyroid expert  and Dr. Nancy O’Hara – Autism expert.  What a fantastic  conference!!    There was so much deep information shared.  I was proud to learn that the way we approach our practice and clients is completely in line with what these experts are suggesting.

Here are some takeaways:

  • You are eating for 2 – yourself and the microbiome of 300 million bacteria and viruses that live in your gut
  • Roundup  in our food is affecting the gut biome creating IBS.
  • Our impaired gut biome is making us fat
  • 80% of today’s diseases are preventable
  • Fibromyalgia is a central nervous system condition not a muscular condition – person is typically in fight or flight and is over enervated – this leaks the gut, causes further neurological disruption
  • Root causes of Hashimotos – genetic predisposition which as a trigger due to leaky gut or exposure to an antigen or toxin
  • 90% of serotonin is made in the gut.  Heal the gut heal the brain
