Day 1: May 9, Digestive Health

There is an integral link between gut health and our immune system.   Research shows that healthy gut bacteria plays an important role in the prevention of disease and the maintenance of good health.

Naturopathic doctors use a variety of tools to address gut health. They can help patients see that many diseases stem from inefficient digestion and create treatments targeted at preventing disease by placing an emphasis on good digestion as a key to health. Naturopathic doctors empower patients to understand the complexities of digestive wellness.
