Clinical Herbalist Leads Gut Health Seminar

Jul 30, 2014 07:54AM


Clinical Herbalist Stephen Byers will teach a seminar on Nutritional and Herbal Approaches to Leaky Gut Syndrome at Tree of Life, in Ephrata, at 6:30 p.m., August 18. Byers will discuss combining medicinal plants with nutrient-dense foods that improve digestive function. The seminar will end with Q&A session and a take-home list of resources for further exploration.

New research continues to reveal how the more than 500 species of bacteria inhabiting the human gut are connected with health concerns related to the brain, hormones and the immune and digestive systems. Increased use of antibiotics, consumption of highly processed and refined foods, nutritional deficiencies, chemical pollutants and our sometimes over-sanitized environment are some of the factors that may contribute to an imbalanced gut microbiome.
