What's the gut got to do with it?

with Jim Sensenig, ND
Medicine Talk invites you to join us for another
free educational talk about naturopathic medicine!

The “gut” brings nutrients into the body and eliminates waste but it is far more than just a digestive system. It is involved in immune function, the production of systemic enzymes, and is the source of many neurotransmitters. The alimentary canal not only nourishes us, but also defends us, heals us, and affects our moods. With more neurons than your brain and more bacteria than cells in your body, the “gut” is the center of your physical universe.
