In your intestine lives trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that control your immune system, neurochemistry, mood, metabolism, weight, and propensity to illness (especially cancer, dementia, autoimmune disease, and heart disease)
Our enteroimmunology program is focused on assessing and repairing the gut microbiome, thereby measurably stopping chronic inflammation for good.
Gut inflammation causes hormone imbalances. Throughout the day and throughout your life, hormones ebb and flow like the tides. A surge of cortisol wakes you up in the morning and at night, melatonin lulls you to sleep. Your gut microbiota acts like a conductor at the center of an orchestra, leading your symphony of hormones. Hormones, in turn, tell DNA what proteins to make and when to make them.
A healthy gut microbiome and hormone system together play a fundamental role in the health of all our organs, each of which have their own microbiomes. We start by optimizing gut microbiome and hormones; and then apply customized strategies to improve the health of all your organs, from head to toe, for medical problems in the scope of internal medicine.
