The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) hosts its annual conference, October 19 - 22, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Hotel in San Diego, CA.
BREAKOUT: DIGESTIVE HEALTH: A HOLISTIC APPROACH
The digestive tract has been dubbed the body’s highway to health or pathway to pathology. In recent years, a new paradigm that focuses on the interplay of diet, genetics and the environment to support gut health has been emerging. This session will review research on the digestive pillars of healing: the enteric nervous system, microbiota, intestinal permeability and barrier defense. It will also review the science and art of therapeutic elimination diets including healing foods and dietary supplements to support GI health. Mind body practices including yoga and qigong to support digestive resilience will be integrated in this informative and experiential session.
