Healthy Gut, Healthy Life Webinar

Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging/Health Through Awareness will host Healthy Gut, Healthy Life, a free Functional Nutrition webinar, from 7 to 8 p.m., June 22. Guest speaker Melissa Crispell, clinical nurse specialist and certified natural health practitioner, will discuss the mysteries of the gut and reveal the five steps needed to revive overall health and feel better naturally. Participants will learn how gut health influences general well-being and food’s role in helping or harming the body’s resistance to chronic inflammation and disease.


The digestive tract acts as a guardian between the outside world and the internal workings of our bodies.  If this barrier is healthy, it allows nutrients into the body while at the same time blocking foreign invaders. If the barrier is unhealthy, the digestive material can bypass this process and even healthy food can be seen as a threat, triggering the body's immune response and potentially leading to food sensitivities and chronic systemic inflammation.
