The role of the gut and health
The inspiration for these emails is to teach you how to improve your immune system to resist viruses, bacteria, and other invaders. I started the series with the basics of functional medicine; stress reduction, sleep, diet, and exercise. I expanded on diet and later emails and provided basic supplementation recommendations.
What I would like to address in this email is the function of the gut and its important function in the immune system. 70-80% of the immune system is located within the gut.
In my last email I reprinted part of an article written by Dr. Perlmutter in which he discussed the brain and immunity. He also briefly explained the role of the immune system and chronic disease.
The immune system plays a significant role in the health of all the organ systems and the aging process.
