As I am writing this post, I am preparing to attend a very exciting convention here in Los Angeles! The title of the convention is “Gut, Brain, and Autoimmune Disorders: The Role Of Food.”
This course will provide me with the latest information regarding the links between food and many diseases. The emphasis of the weekend will be on gastrointestinal and neurological disorders but will also cover other organ systems including the cardiovascular system. In addition endocrine dysfunction, skin issues and joint disorders will also be discussed.
I am most excited that William Davis, M.D., the author of Wheat Belly will be speaking for four hours about his newest findings in regard to wheat and health.
In addition, the world-famous Alessio Fasano,M.D., who is a world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist and research scientist, as well as the chief at the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at the world-famous Mass General Hospital for Children, will be speaking. Dr. Fassano is doing International Research and will lead us to a greater understanding of the complicated nature of gluten – related disorders, including celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy. Dr. Fasano will also be addressing us for almost 4 hours.
I really look forward to bringing the information I get at this convention to all my readers and patients in my future posts.
