“Eating habits are going to play a bigger role in the disease process than we’ve been led to believe.”
– Dr. Denise Scott
Did you know that 70 to 80 percent of our immune cells live in our gut? Why is that important? Because what goes on in the gut communicates whether our body thrives or attacks itself. Ultimately, our gut is responsible for how our immune system responds and functions – and more importantly, it’s responsible for how well we are. Join Dr. Michelle Robin as she invites Dr. Denise Scott to talk more about this fascinating connection between the gut and disease prevention. She’ll share what led her down this journey of wanting to work with kids and parents, and what missed opportunities and conversations parents should be having with their kid’s pediatrician. She will also provide wisdom behind what our gut needs so that the rest of our body functions well – and why the first few years of a child’s life are crucial to setting the stage for their future health.
