East Meets West: The Neurogastroimmune Complex From Preconception and Beyond
Presented by: Geri Brewster, RD, MPH, CDN, and Stephen Cowan, MD
Emerging research in epigenetics and nutrition is catching up to the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine that conceptualized a unity of function between nervous system, digestion and immune resilience. This session will discuss the relevance of optimizing neuro-gastro-immune unity before, during, and after pregnancy in quality of long-term health. Using case studies, practical applications that employ both functional medicine and Chinese medicine will be discussed.
