The Gut – Cavernoma Connection Emulsifiers and More with Dr. Shelley Stevens

Join Dr Shelley Stevens to discuss the gut-cavernoma connection, the impact of emulsifiers & more!

Dr Stevens is a toxicologist, and, being a mother of a child with brainstem cavernoma, Dr. Stevens has a special interest in the gut-cavernoma connection.

“As a mom, I wanted to do everything I could to keep my child healthy. I started looking into the connection between cavernomas and gut health, with a particular focus on emulsifiers. Our whole family now eats emulsifier free. I’ve been working closely with the Alliance to Cure Cavernous Malformation, to educate members about emulsifiers and about eating emulsifier free. I helped create the emulsifier free diet profile for the American based food is good (FIG) app for people with dietary restrictions. The hope is that this app will expand outside the US, and hopefully will become available in the UK.”
