Date Aired: Wednesday, June 24, 2015
Presenter: Dr. Elizabeth Boyle
Dr. Elizabeth Boyle is a Board Certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist along with a Master of Science in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine from the University of South Florida. After several years of delivering babies and because of training in osteopathy, in which she was trained holistically that the body has a capacity to heal itself, she decided to expand her horizons by training in medical acupuncture. Her medical acupuncture training was done through New York Medical College.
She will be discussing Food sensitivities/Allergies and the relation to Chronic Disease. Do you ever feel that you had a gut feeling about something? Or, when you get anxious do you feel that in your gut? That may be because the gut plays a very important part in sending messages back and forth to our brain. Those messages will then , in turn, determine how we feel , both physically and mentally. Seventy per cent of the immune system is located in the gut, and ninety per cent of serotonin (one of the anti anxiety, anti depression neurotransmitters) is made in the gut!In this webinar, we will explore how the health of the gut can influence the health of our mind, body and spirit. And ,if the gut is “unhealthy”, it may predispose us to illness and chronic dis-ease. And, we will explore how to heal the gut so as to optimize your health and longevity!
