Dr. Kelila Kasim will be educating us about the relationship between our “intestinal nervous system” and the rest of the body. Our enteric nervous system plays a large role in food and gluten-related sensitivity as well as global body pains.  As a holistic chiropractor, Dr. Kelila Kasim helps people through all stages of digestive issues – from identification to ongoing care.

During the show, we’ll talk about:

  • The enteric nervous system
  • Why it’s important to get care after you’ve gone gluten free

About Dr. Kelila Kasim

Dr. Kelila received her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University and has a passion for helping others understand and restore the complex nature of their body. Because each body is different, Dr. Kelila likes to incorporate multiple techniques to ensure each patient is treated as an individual, including but not limited to: Applied Kinesiology, Trigger Point, as well as diversified, full-body and extremity adjusting. For true health, we must address not only the physical structure but also the emotional (mental) and chemical (metabolic/nutritional) make-up; all aspects need to be functioning optimally to create a solid foundation for innate healing.

Dr. Kelila has a strong passion for nutrition and continues her post- graduate study in Functional Medicine in the field of Applied Nutrition. This specialty addresses the underlying causes of disease (digestive, hormonal and metabolic, etc.) that lead to many common symptoms, such as migraines/headaches, digestive complaints (IBS/colitis/Crohn’s/heartburn), fatigue and chronic fatigue, PMS, weight gain, and depression/anxiety.  

Dr. Kelila passionately empowers people to take control of their health and guiding patients to discover the gifts that moving, thinking, and eating right offer.
