Microbiome and the Brain

This course is for you if you are curious to understand how to improve the relationship between your gut and your brain, to maximise your physical and mental wellbeing.

Groundbreaking new research has established that the microorganisms that live in and on us can affect our mood and other elements of our wellbeing.  These microorganisms are known as microbiota or microbiome – you cannot survive without them, and they cannot survive without you.

What is even more amazing is that through various avenues, your microbiota can communicate with your brain. If your microbiota gets out of balance, you can become anxious or depressed. It also contributes to many ‘non-communicable’ diseases.

This three-part online course gives you the opportunity to learn more about this fascinating subject.

Sue Langley will be sharing knowledge about the Microbiome-Brain connection gained at the Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies in Venice, Italy.  She has much to tell about the link between your brain and your gut – insights we would never have thought possible even a few years ago. The course will expose you to new and amazing research, as well as some tips on what to do and what not to do to maximise your health and wellbeing.

During the course, Sue will pose some challenging questions. Are you swallowing money when you buy probiotics?  What really works?  How do you know if your bacteria are happy?  Are your bacteria driving your cravings and your behaviour?
