The gut-skin axis: scientific evidence and an integrative approach to testing and treatment

The gut microbiota has been implicated in many chronic diseases, and increasing evidence points to the existence of a gut-skin axis. Several skin conditions are clearly associated with gut dysbiosis and increased gut permeability, yet most gastroenterologists and dermatologists continue to take unintegrated approaches to the treatment of gut and skin conditions. By addressing the root cause of disease, we can heal the skin from the inside out.

At this talk, you’ll learn about:
·        The association between gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, and skin conditions
·        The role of butyrate in gut and skin health
·        The immune and neuroendocrine connections between the gut and skin
·        How some food allergies may start in the skin
·        How to test and treat skin conditions from the inside out
·        Essential nutrients for gut and skin health
