Christa Orecchio: Heal the Gut, Heal Your Life

So many problems begin in the immune system. When we can heal the gut we can get everything else under control.

“Really, we are more microbial than we are human, that’s why gut health is so important.” – Christa Orecchio

In this talk from Wanderlust’s Speakeasy, clinical and holistic nutritionist Christa Orecchio explains the role the human microbiome plays in our overall wellness. In America we have over 64 million people currently struggling with digestive health. From Crohns to colitis, IBD and other gut disorders, our overuse of antibiotics, elevated stress levels and unhealthy eating patterns have led us down a path of compromised immunity.

Through her practice of natural medicine, Christa explains the importance of finding the root of disease and learning to treat the cause instead of just the symptoms. In this talk we will learn how to heal our gut microbiome and retrain our bodies to understand the process of replicating health throughout our entire system.
