Your gut is the new frontier of neuroscience. Scientists are uncovering powerful evidence that bacteria in your microbiome significantly affect your overall physiology, in particular the connection between gut bacteria and the brain. This NEW seminar from leading integrative practitioner, Davis Brockenshire, reviews the gut-brain axis and the hidden underlying stressors that contribute to neuroinflammation. The goal is to review these stressors and gain skills in detecting and handling the various issues that stress the body and prevent healing. This connect-the-dots approach to healing will teach you to think about physiology from a whole new angle and approach stubborn cases with fresh perspective. Learn how to integrate traditional knowledge of herbs and foods into a modern setting.

• Gut Permeability: Examine underlying causes of leaky gut and abnormal physiology, including stress, alcohol ingestion, infection/bacterial overgrowth, and constipation
• The Brain-Gut Connection: Review literature on the connection between trauma and subsequent gut health
• Environmental Toxins: Literature review on the impact of environmental toxins in health
• Autoimmunity: Physiology of autoimmunity. Statistics and review of the literature on prevalence of autoimmunity
• Evaluation: Clinical goals to restore or maintain adequate neurologic tone
• Creation of management and reevaluation of supplementation support
