SUMMARY: Friendly reminder to attend the CME Microbiome, Disease, Therapeutics, and Nutrition at UPMC Passavant Hospital, Pittsburgh, October 25, 2017, Assembly Hall, noon–1PM! See the last post here for specifics, but in general, THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY, and I will share those no-nonsense insights into microbiome associations for the hypertensive, atherosclerotic, obese, cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, and IBS conditions (and more) as well as therapeutic diets being used for those disease conditions. What to eat information has been muddied by industry production of ubiquitous processed foods marketed as healthy foods. This CME shares tools your patients can use now to turn around disease as well as recognize its role in increasing drug efficacy and prevention of medication failures. Public Microbiome Awareness Education gives the ‘why’ behind disease, and is patient Motivation for Action, not paralysis. This CME will help establish your patients healthy relationship with food and turn around their disease status. Listen too as local patients share how they use evidence–based microbiome therapeutics to induce and maintain remission for autoimmune disease, and learn about the Pittsburgh—based cohort forming for inclusion in upcoming leading light microbiome researcher, Dr. Rob Knight, UCSF studies looking at ferment consumer gut microbiomes.
