Join us for a day of information and inspiration on how to use food to manage and prevent stress and chronic disease. Hear from four nutrition experts on how diet can improve your gut health and eliminate toxic build up in the body.

Health practitioners and scientists are now uncovering the benefits of "Nutrigenomics."  Research shows that food is information that speaks to our genes and triggers messages that create health or disease.

Whether you are a practicing physician, nurse practitioner, nutritionist, or health coach, you will walk away with a stronger understanding of the application of therapeutic diets specifically on the topic of the gut-microbiome and nutrition. 

This year’s nutrition symposium is focused on:

  • Details of chronic activated EBV and diet options for this disease. 
  • IBS, functional gut disorders and food as medicine for these conditions - including SIBO. 
  • What to eat for stress, anxiety and neurological health.
  • Adrenal health: Foods that help balance the bliss and stress response

Aprox 7 CEUS are available to professionals

 

Anyone is welcome to attend, however, the information presented at this year's "Food is Medicine" Symposium is targeted towards health professionals.
