Disorders in immune function are a modern day epidemic which manifest as a litany of immune and autoimmune conditions like hypothyroid, celiac, IBD, RA, IBS and depression. The gut is possibly the most impactful organ influencing the immune system. By understanding how to optimize gut health and gut immune function we can unlock a powerful method for improving this array of immune and autoimmune conditions. However, what was healthy for our ancestors immune systems may not be healthy for a western immune system. This talk will outline where we should replicate the ancestral environment for optimum immune health and but also where we should make important modifications to better suit the modern day immune system.
