Digestive Wellness

Professor Vicky Newman

You can strengthen your immune system and reduce risk of disease through healthy digestion. This presentation will briefly review how faulty digestion can affect the human body systemically, from headaches, mood, and skin issues to fatigue and pain. Food choices and eating habits affect the gut microbiome, and a healthy gut biome involves more than just taking probiotic supplements. The lecture will also review natural remedies for common gastrointestinal challenges, including acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, and irritable bowel syndrome.
