Interest in the role of the microbiome in human health has exploded over the past ten years. An increasing number of studies propose that part of what determines how the human body functions may be not only our genes, but also the genes of the trillions of microbes that live on and in our bodies. Taken collectively, these organisms outnumber our own human cells 10 to 1, making up 5 pounds of our body weight. Studies are discovering that our bacteria (or lack of) can be associated with: obesity, malnutrition, heart disease, diabetes, celiac disease, eczema, asthma, multiple sclerosis, colitis, some cancers, autism and potentially in fatty liver disease.

With a growing awareness that many of our modern diseases are “lifestyle” related and that greater than 50% of current medications do not work for the individuals taking them, research in the microbiome presents a potential opportunity to provide substantial preventative treatments– with few or no adverse events.

This conference will acquaint health care professionals with validated alternative methods, so they can provide their patients better-informed advice. The presentations will improve front line-clinicians’ ability to recognize the role of the human microbiome in specific disease states. Practitioners will learn to employ Environmental/ Integrative Medicine methods to improve treatment for the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
