How Do Foods, Stress and Chemicals Affect Your Health?
Dr. Chris Magryta of Salisbury Pediatrics will speak at the Center for the Environment on “Your Gut and the Environment” at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 24.
His talk will center on the emerging importance of understanding the microorganisms that inhabit our digestive system and how they influence our health. “From food to stress to chemicals, we need to be aware of the impacts on our micro flora,” Magryta says.
Magryta, who joined Salisbury Pediatrics in 1999, has a special interest in pediatric allergies, asthma, and immunology. He has studied Integrative Medicine with Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona School of Medicine.
In addition to general pediatric care, Dr. Magryta provides specialized care in wellness and nutrition, combining alternative medicine with traditional medicine. Over the years, he has participated in missionary work in Ecuador and Belize.
He received his undergraduate degree from Vassar College and his medical training from Emory University School of Medicine and the University of Virginia.
