The Gut Brain Axis

Dr. Jane Drobin

3:00 PM – 3:45 PM
Saturday, October 19th

The Gut-Brain Axis presentation is a holistic and functional approach to help understand the connection between our gastro-intestinal system and our brains. We will investigate the neurology of the gut-brain axis, signaling agents, dysfunctional agents and clinical applications. Furthermore, we will discuss how decreased brain output equals poor gut function, and how poor gut function leads to symptoms such as brain fog, cold hands/feet, agitation, decrease in motivation, getting upset easily, poor memory and nervousness.

This presentation will further investigate common disorders such as IBS, SIBO, concussions, leaky gut, eczema & gluten sensitivities. By understanding the etiology and root cause of these disorders, we will discuss what practitioners are doing for their patients including diet and lifestyle changes, botanical medicine, homeopathics, supplementation and specialty lab testing.
