Andrea McBeth ND - Re-thinking Immune Health Through a Microbiome Lens (1 General CE Credit)

2022 Thaena Microbiome Symposium - The Rise of Postbiotics: The Roles they Play in in immunology and women's health.


The human microbiome is turning out to be an incredibly important organ system. As we have begun to uncover some of the secrets of this microscope world within us, the immune system is proving to be a crucial bridge between what the microbes do and their impact on our physiology. In this talk I will overview some basic information about the microbiome. We will then deep dive into the microbiome and its relationship to the immune system and other end organs it impacts including the liver and the brain. 



  1. Describe microbial ecosystems.
  2. Discuss how the gut microbiome impacts the immune system.
  3. Discuss how the gut microbiome impacts the liver and brain.
  4. List some essential microbial metabolites for the immune system.

She has vast experience in a variety of lab research settings and previously worked in molecular biology and biomedical engineering at OHSU in Portland, Oregon. Dr. McBeth, along with Dr. Dobner, co-founded Flora Medicine, an integrative clinic based out of Portland, Oregon specializing in functional GI issues and the microbiome.

A biochemist by training, Dr. McBeth’s technical science background and passion for patient advocacy drives her safety first approach to her work with therapeutics. She is also spending her ‘free time’ as adjunct faculty for the school of graduate studies at NUNM, teaching a basic microbiome class and the influence of nutrition on the microbiome.
