Evidence of environmental effects on IBD

Evidence points us to understand IBD as a multifactorial process. In most cases, a compounding “perfect storm” comes together to manifest the disease or to worsen symptoms. Genetic predispositions, your gut ecology, immune dysregulation, and your stress response spiral in on one another. So many of us discount the context of our environment and really just how much is actually in our control. Time to retake the wheel guys.
