Innovation in a rural gastroenterology practice using a farm

“Gastroenterology clinics in rural areas have the unique opportunity to innovate the field by working with local community organizations and farms. Patients and physicians develop a deeper understanding of the root cause for chronic disease, particularly digestive diseases using a food as medicine approach. Cultivating gut microbes in the soil and gut can re-shape the management of chronic diseases rooted in inflammation and metabolic dysfunction. Rural gastroenterology clinics can be at the forefront of shaping the innovative clinic-to-farm-to-table paradigm in health care that can lead to cost savings and improved outcomes. This model ultimately can foster deeper connections between patients, physicians, communities, and nature as well as better health outcomes.”
