The 100 trillion intestinal bacteria that live in our GI tract, which possess more DNA and cells than seen in our body, are a hidden factory producing chemicals that circulate in our blood affecting the brain and body metabolism. An unhealthy Western diet and high usage of unnecessary antibiotics has created a medical condition known as "dysbiosis," or abnormal microbial patterns in the intestine.
Millions of Americans are impacted by dysbiosis, which include diseases such as chronic gastrointestinal disease, allergic disorders like asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, fatty liver, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), chronic neurologic disorders like Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis, and obesity.
Drs. Utay and Snyder will discuss some of the fascinating research being done, current clinical trials and practical applications that are on the horizon. A question and answer session will follow.
