Gut-Lung Axis:
The Impact of Dysbiosis
on Pulmonary Health

Presented by
Jocelyn Strand, ND

What to expect

It is well established that the composition of the microflora in our gut is a factor in the development of many illnesses and is affected by genetic predisposition, diet, state of bacterial colonization, and exposure to substances that may disrupt the microbial balance. However, did you know that chronic lung conditions exhibit an altered pulmonary microbiome? The concept of the gut-lung axis posits that dysbiosis in the intestinal microbiota community may have a profound effect on pulmonary health.

Join Dr. Jocelyn Strand as she discusses the gut-lung axis and new clinical evidence supporting how the interrelationships between oral and gastrointestinal health influence respiratory health.

Attendees will learn:

•  The significance of interplay between the microbiomes of the mouth, lungs, and GI tract

•  How the GI microbiome influences the development of systemic immunity

•  Clinical strategies and botanical support for a healthy microbiome
