USED IN TREATING:
“All disease begins in the gut.” Hippocrates
A lot has happened in medicine since the “father of western medicine” uttered these prescient words. According to Dr. Dana Cohen, there are few areas more important to overall health and wellness than the Human Microbiome, otherwise known as gut health. The trillions of microorganisms, or bacteria, residing in and on our bodies comprise the Human Microbiome, an active ecosystem that includes what is commonly referred to as gut flora. Researchers have found the bacteria of the microbiome outnumber even genes, making its impact no surprise. And with more bacteria found inside the intestines than in any other part of the body, it is especially important to make sure that ecosystem is properly cared for.
That’s where Dr. Cohen comes in. Her long-standing emphasis on nutrition and supplementation helped cement her as a leading authority on gut health, providing relief for patients suffering from everything from Crohn’s disease to food allergies. By understanding her patients’ digestive challenges, dietary and other lifestyle habits, in addition to their symptoms, Dr. Cohen is able to prescribe an effective treatment for overall gut health.
Through supplementation, tailored nutrition plans and the use of probiotics, countless patients have found relief. Dr. Cohen believes deeply in the role gut health plays in overall health and welcomes any questions on the topic.
