The topic of this year’s conference is “Food as Medicine".” Heather Wise will be leading a two-part workshop on the Secret Garden of the Gut Microbiome.

We need to care for our microbiome as we would any ecosystem, by encouraging the growth of the beneficial species and discouraging the growth of pathogenic or unhealthy species. Much like a pesky weed in your garden, the overgrowth of certain strains of intestinal microflora can contribute to many common health problems. In this interactive workshop we will go the latest science on the gut microbiome and ways to rebuild and enhance biodiversity for greater overall health.
