Christians have the responsibility to leverage and maximize the positive impact of the gift of good health of body, mind and spirit that has been given to us and, when possible, invest in improving and maintaining our health as an act of worship of and service to God. Why? Because good health practices help us to offer our bodies and minds to God so that we can be His ambassadors in the world (2 Corinthians 5:19-20) and do the "...good works, that God prepared in advance for us to" (Ephesians 2:10). MORE >Yet, despite our best intentions to practice good health habits, most of us struggle. For many of us, the problem is not that we do not have enough knowledge or even resources. More than we need more information or innovation, we need a change of mind. Changing our health starts with changing (or renewing) our mind! (Romans 12:1-2)
In this 30-minute sample of our Change Your Health by Changing Your Mind Workshop, we will explore:
1. The call to offer all of ourselves (body, mind and spirit) for God’s service.
2. The consequences of the poor health practices of many Christ-followers today.
3. A few of the unhealthy mindsets that hinder our ability to follow through on consistently practicing good health habits and how to challenge them with the word of God.
4. Practical strategies and encouragement to take steps forward towards good health in freedom and confidence in the grace, mercy and power of God.

There has been a tsunami of clinical research since the completion of the human genome project in 2001. Did you know that two thirds of the human body consist of bacteria, viruses, fungi, prokaryotes, and archaea? Collectively, these micro-organisms are known as the microbiome. Also coined the "second brain', the gut microbiota communicates with the human host in a symbiotic fashion. Our lifestyles and environment modulate our gut microbiota and can lead to imbalances in its composition resulting in increased intestinal permeability. Uncontrolled intestinal permeability can modulate our immune response, and if left unchecked, can lead to autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease and many others. With modern advances in diagnostic testing, it is now possible to detect antibodies early on in the disease spectrum. Early detection may allow preventative steps that may preempt disease manifestation via precise and precision treatment plans. This 'systems based' approach will fundamentally change the way medicine is delivered in the coming years. This presentation looks at the present status of how we, as "super organisms", have the capability to modify the way our genes express themselves, by changing our lifestyle, and healing our gut.
