Diversifying the Gastrointestinal Microbiome
with Dr Jason Hawrelak
We are living in an age where nearly all our patients will be experiencing some degree of dysbiosis. In this webinar, Dr Jason Hawrelak will discuss the importance of a healthy, well-balanced gastrointestinal microbiome, outline the main reasons behind the current epidemic of dysbiosis, and highlight treatment strategies that can be used to improve the state of this ecosystem and diversify a dwindling microbiome.
This webinar explores the importance of the GIT microbiome and the ever-growing list of health conditions now being associated with dysbiosis. Presented by Dr Jason Hawrelak, the webinar explores the main reasons behind the growing dysbiosis epidemic – from a diet, food additive, and medication perspective, and discusses approaches that can be used to nurture the GIT microbiome and improve its diversity.
