Dr. Sarah Ballantyne

What is this talk about

It’s not an exaggeration to say that our health is rooted in the health of our guts. The links between gut health and full-body health include our ability to absorb nutrients, immune system function, detoxification, and our resident bacterial allies. In this talk, Dr. Ballantyne will summarize the features of a robustly healthy gut, discuss how a healthy gut supports full body health and explain how an unhealthy one can directly lead to chronic disease. Then, Dr. Ballantyne will focus on key diet and lifestyle factors necessary to support gut health, and therefore overall health.
