BEYOND ANATOMY, THE GUT-BRAIN CONTINUUM: THE INTERSECTION OF THE MICROBIOME AND NEUROENDOCRINE HEALTH AND DISEASE
Friday, November 19: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
ABOUT THE LECTURE:
The beginning of health is increasingly understood to involve the myriad of relationships between the Gut-Brain systems.  The continued development of our understanding of the microbiome and its direct and indirect roles on the anatomy and function of the neuroendocrine function of the intestinal lining has revealed the microbiome as ground zero for health and disease.  Here we look at the environmental threats and the microbiome defense systems for resilient barriers to protect the immunologic systems of the immune systems of the peripheral and central nervous system, and point to practical methods for you and your patients to preserve genomic health through reconnection with our environment.  

Learning Objectives:
1. Provide insights into the new biologic understanding on the relationship of the neurologic system within the intestinal anatomy
2. Introduce the roll of the bacterial and fungal species in the function of the neuroendocrine system of the gut – brain continuum 
3. Understand the effects of chemical farming, antibiotic use in food production, and in clinical practice on the structure and function of the intestinal lining and downstream inflammation, and neurologic function.
4. Establish some practical guidelines for your patient care that enables the individual to reestablish a healthy relationship with their environment.  
 
ABOUT DR. BUSH:
Zach Bush, MD is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country - with expertise in Internal
Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. The breakthrough science that Dr. Bush and his colleagues have delivered offer profound new insights into human health and longevity. In 2012 he discovered a family of carbon-based redox molecules made by bacteria. He and his team subsequently demonstrated that this cellular communication network functions to compensate for glyphosate, and many other dietary, chemical, and pharmaceutical toxins that disrupt our body's natural defense systems. This science has resulted in a revolutionary class of dietary supplements, including the product, RESTORE. Dr. Bush points to his kids as the driving force behind his passion for change. He is fiercely motivated by a desire to have them experience a much brighter and healthier future. His education efforts provide a grassroots foundation from which we can launch change in our legislative decisions, ultimately up-shifting consumer behavior to bring about radical change in the mega industries of big farming, big pharma, and Western Medicine at large.
