Our Gastrointestinal Health: It's a Gut Feeling

Join Dr. Peter Bongiorno for a guided tour of our fascinating gastrointestinal system, where 70-80% of our immune system resides, which makes its balance so crucial to our overall health. He will explain how the digestive tract functions as a second brain. It's a small wonder that cardiovascular disease, cancer, and autoimmune illness, to name a few, can have their beginnings in gastrointestinal imbalance. You'll discover how your "fight or flight" response can work for or against you, what inflammation is, and how it influences a myriad of diseases. Whether your desire is for prevention or to take ill health by the horns, Peter will provide you with simple, practical, and effective suggestions for moving towards your goal.
