The Integrative Medicine DeCal course at UC Berkeley is a survey course on a diversity of healing sciences, and medical practices. It encompasses specific fields of healthcare and medicine from all over the world as well as fields expanding in the United States. Professionals from practices such as: allopathy (modern western medicine), osteopathy, naturopathy, homeopathy, midwifery, Native American Medicine, acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Taoist Medicine, ayurveda, ethnobotany, yoga, energy medicine, meditation, psychiatry, chiropractic, and many other fields to share their insight and knowledge in the healing arts of medicine across cultures.

The goal of this course is to promote awareness and expose students to the different types of complimentary and alternative therapies in the medical field.

Lecture on Gut Health, SIBO and Leaky Gut, Five Reasons Acupuncture Helps Digestive Function

Digestion is a complex task performed by the body. It begins in the mouth and finishes when the ingested food leaves the body through the rectum. For all we have learned over the years regarding digestion, there is still so much more we don’t know or are still learning. For example, it wasn’t until recently, the last 10 years or so, that modern medicine confirmed our gastrointestinal tract is our second brain. This discovery is drastically changing the way the body and its many functions are viewed, because everything we put in our mouths can potentially have life-altering effects on the mind, as well as the body. 

Free Health Lecture on 2/16/19  at 3:00pm

Presenter: Dr. John Nieters, L.Ac. DAOM
