Wholistic Health – Whole Foods Impact on Inflammation Response
Speaker: Sara LeBrun-Blashka, MSNE

The prevalence of chronic conditions have accelerated over the last 30 years, and diet and lifestyle drive a majority of these conditions. Americans have multiple nutrient gaps due to the amount and types of foods that they consume.  Sara will explore how whole foods and supplemental nutrients provide a synergistic effect to support overall health and the inflammatory process. Inflammation is a key contributor to chronic conditions.  Sara will provide education on the two phases of inflammation (Initiation and Resolution) and their role in health.  She will explore the role of omega 3 (resolvins) and miRNA in the resolution phase of inflammation.
