The microbiome: Influencing allergy recovery in everyday clinical practice

Topics that will be covered

  • Role of the microbiome in allergy
  • The effect of allergic disease on gut health
  • Positively influencing the outgrowing of allergy and the role of probiotics
  • Live Q&A
This 1-hour webinar, including a live Q&A, looks beyond dietary management to pose the question: Could focusing on our patients’ gut health have a positive impact on the natural course of their allergy? It explores the relationship between the gut microbiome and allergic disease, and what healthcare professionals can do in practice to positively influence tolerance acquisition.
