JUST 1 WEEK TO GO! Don't miss out on this Special Event held in conjunction with NutriSearch and Cell Logic.
Please come in person if you can, this is a great opportunity to get together (while we are able to!) and catch up with fellow practitioners and students.
Enjoy a chat with others from a range of healthcare modalities over drinks and nibbles.
Networking will be followed by a live-streamed presentation on Modulating Gut Ecology – a powerful strategy linking the Gut-Immune Interface to Acute and Chronic Disease presented by Rob Thomas (Cell Logic) in Australia. Then Adri Ferreira (Nutrisearch) will present some interesting case studies and moderate a combined Q&A session.
About the topic: Intro to G.E.M.M., the gateway connecting Gut-Immune Interface and Chronic Disease
Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (G.E.M.M.) provides a refreshingly different approach amidst the plethora of gut health programmes. G.E.M.M. was developed by Australian clinician and scientist, Dr Christine Houghton who realised that the current solutions to gut health were not always effective. G.E.M.M.’s uniqueness stems from its focus on addressing the fundamental biochemical processes that link the Gut-Immune interface to the distant organs responsible for both acute and chronic disease.
Rob's presentation will introduce you to powerful but little-known properties of the remarkable epithelial cells of the gut. G.E.M.M. relies on these cells and their special properties, considering them as Mission Control. These cells interact closely with the immune network directly below them. Restoring homeostasis at the Gut-Immune interface is addressed by G.E.M.M as its foundation for restoring the health of distant organs and systems.
Where: Marcellin Room, St Columba Centre, 40 Vermont St, Ponsonby – parking available onsite behind the Centre.
Tickets: $20 or $10 for students (drinks and light refreshments included). Tickets must be pre-booked.
