What is the bacteria, how does it work, and how does it help keep the balance between health and disease? These are the first questions that she will try, as a gastroenterologist, to answer.

Even though microbial study still makes shy steps in the medical world, new discoveries of medicine have shown that the entire “carpet” of bacteria that covers the digestive tract, from the small intestine to the colon, has a significant influence on everything that affects the good functioning of the body.

Starting from the way we digest food and absorb macronutrients and maintain the health of the body, even immunity or mood, all seem to be influenced by this microbe. As a result, we have decided to turn this ‘bacterial sphere’ into a subject of discussion within the Congress.
