Feeding the Vagina: The Gut Vagina Brain Axis
with Betsy Greenleaf, DO, FACOOG (Distinguished), FACOG, FPMRS, FAAOPM, MBA
Heard about the Gut-Brain Axis? Diet affecting health? Food to heal or harm? Have you heard of the Brain-Gut-Vagina Axis? We will cover the interconnection between these three systems and their effect on recurrent infections, fertility, and libido. Dr. Betsy Greenleaf, the first board-certified female urogynecologist in the United States, is a guide for pelvic peace. Through a holistic body-mind-spirit approach, she assesses the body’s microbiome to bring balance and comfort to patients. This lecture will cover the role of nutrition on pelvic health, microbiome testing, and how to restore balance through natural approaches.
Premier women’s health expert, a best-selling author, entrepreneur, inventor specializing in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery for over 20 years, Dr. Greenleaf is a trailblazer as the first female in the United States to become board certified in Urogynecology.
Dr. Greenleaf takes a holistic body-mind-spirit approach to healing and wellness. She believes many of the answers to a healthy life are found within. In addition to being triple board-certified, she is the CEO of The Pelvic Floor Store, an online store dedicated to finding reliable pelvic health products and education ( www.pelvicfloorstore.com)
