This webinar recording is part of the ‘GI Expert Series’. Five webinars are being released over five weeks. Other webinars included in the series are:
- Bridging the Gaps in Functional Assessment of Gastrointestinal Health
- Expansion of Visceral Adiposity: The Gut and Cardiometabolic Syndrome
- GI360 – Extensive Assessment of the GI Microbiome
- The Clinically Optimized GI360: Focus on Methodology
The microbiome plays a key role in the competency of our immune defence. Dr Kalish explores three key ways that the GI tract interacts with and controls the immune system, including the role of mucosal immunity, digestion, and absorption of nutrients and commensal bacteria. New research shows the severity of certain diseases correlates with dysbiotic states, and that poor microbiome balance invites more serious health outcomes. We’ll also look at the role of stress and GI health, and how secretory IgA relates to our first-line immune defence.
