Fasano, FREE: Early Nutrition Influences Microbiome, Disease

SUMMARY:   Our food choices are fundamental for health.  The next Integrated Functional Medicine Grand Rounds installment with Cleveland Clinic is coming up on Tuesday, December 13, 2016. Listen, for FREE as Dr. Alessio FASANO, MD speaks on How Early Nutrition Influences Microbiome, Disease.  This is an incredible opportunity officially titled:  How Early Nutrition Influences Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Profiles in Health and Disease: Shifting From a Disease-Centered Approach to Patient-Oriented Functional Medicine.  For background, I have followed Dr. Fasano’s work for ages.  He is a leading gut inflammation light who put Celiac Disease, and Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, on the map in the US when all US health agencies literally told him those were “across the pond”.  When that happens, you know you are about to make a major break thru that will ruffle lots of feathers.  He persevered, and his findings will re-write the medical books.  Those findings opened the doors for what is now understood as:  Gut permeability ⇒ immune stimulation ⇒ inflammation ⇒ gut and systemic  ramifications ⇒ autoimmune and chronic disease.   Listen in to Dr. Fasano, FREE,  Early Nutrition Influences Microbiome, Disease!
