Description of Presentation:

In part 3 of this clinical presentation, listeners will learn about the impact of trauma on the gut microbiome and various micronutrients that impact digestion, absorption, gut health, and eating disorders. Research shows that as quickly as 6 hours after a traumatic brain injury, the gut microbiome is altered. Additionally, there is a growing body of research suggesting that past trauma has long term effects on the gut microbiome and therefore on mood and gut function.
