Are We on the Same Page? TCM and the Modern Microbiome with Janet Zand
Friday, 11/01 at 9:00 AM to 9:50 AM
As the next medical frontier for the prevention and treatment of disease, the human microbiome is currently one of the most exciting topics in life sciences. Will conventional medicine’s acceptance of the microbiome lead to a bridging of the gap between modern medicine and traditional Chinese medicine? More than 2,000 years ago, practitioners of TCM developed an understanding of the activity and primary importance of the microbiome—and even microorganisms. This session will introduce you to how TCM captures this microbiome balance and has the potential to improve weight management, longevity, immunity, and mental performance.
