Panel discussion: What's in your gut? Why does your microbiome matter...


Jessica Richman on the Microbiome

Jessica is co-founder and CEO of uBiome, a citizen science startup that sequences the human microbiome. Dozens of health conditions are correlated with the microbiome -- from asthma to diabetes, autism to depression, irritable bowel, Crohn’s, chronic sinusitis, heart disease, and more. Ubiome helps individuals to investigate your personal microbiome and learn how you correlate with others. 

Mark Anthony on Metabolic Typing

Have you ever wondered why one meal can make you feel awesome and yet another can cause a food coma? It all comes down to your metabolic type. Everyone has a unique metabolic type that makes them as different from a biological perspective as much as their fingerprints. The Metabolic Typing health building program discovers the answers to what really makes you tick – so you can achieve superior health. Mark Anthony, an advocate for the personalization of health building programs, is the creator of Primo Health Solutions, LLC, a company dedicated to using natural health building programs like Metabolic Typing, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, and Personal Training.

    Would like to go, but have to pay in cash at the event. Haven't got a credit card, nor any money in the bank. Just small amount of cash on me.

      No worries - you can pay what you are able at the door. We won't turn anyone away who's genuinely hard pressed to come up with the admission fee.
