9:00 Dr. Joel Morgan: Parental Guide to the Gut. Dr. Joel Morgan is a DAN doctor, naturopath and a father of a child on the spectrum. The gastrointestinal system (gut) can be viewed as the beginning and the end of a story. The health of the gut, which plays many roles, determines the overall health of our body. What this talk is intended to do is empower parents to become the spokesperson of their child’s gut by giving an overview of the signs and symptoms of the gut, along with decoding the particular conditions associated with such signs. Additionally, clinical evaluation and treatments will be covered, and we will touch on the expanding knowledge of the role of intestinal biofilms in chronic gut conditions.
