More Than a Gut Feeling: Gut Health is Critical to Wellness
Gut health, the bacterial microbiome, and their role in a variety of conditions have drawn increasing attention the last few years, both in research and popular culture.  
 
For a quick overview of why gut health is important for the whole body, click through this slideshow
 
For one, gut health is the most overlooked element of hormonal balance. It plays a role in menopause, thyroid issues, estrogen excess, and mood disorders, among other conditions.   
 
And the colonies of bacteria throughout our guts also play critical roles in growth, digestion, immune health, and brain functioning. It starts the moment we pass through our mother's birth canal -- or maybe even sooner as suggested by recent research.   
 
The phrase "go with your gut" implies the gastrointestinal system is the opposite of our logical brains, but studies have increasingly demonstrated that there is a "brain-gut connection." In fact, some consider the nerve cells lining the gastrointestinal tract to be a mini brain because it is so important to our overall health. The most easily noticeable sign is the feeling of "butterflies in the stomach," one of many stress responses with a link to the gut.
 
The cascading effects of our gut remind us that wellness often requires a thoughtful, whole-health approach.

Learn more about how to manage gut health in your patients by attending the 2019 Annual Meeting. View Meeting Website

Policy and Advocacy
Join the campaign to protect patient access to compounded medications! 
 
Despite a long history of safe use and patient need, the FDA has blocked patient access to ingredients used in compounded medications and is in the process of reviewing and potentially blocking access to more.
 
Common conditions that will be impacted include: digestive disorders, chronic viral infections, anemia and vitamin deficiencies, migraine, hepatitis, colitis, asthma, diabetes, Parkinson's, chronic fatigue, other autoimmune disorders, lupus, and supportive therapies for chemotherapy side-effects.
