EVENT: The Gut Brain Connection - back by popular demand
|The Gut Brain Connection - back by popular demand : How gut health affects well being
Did you know we are essentially more bacteria than human? – and the microbes in our guts are responsible for 90% of the messaging to our brain rather than brain to gut! Science is beginning to catch up to the crucial impact our gut microbes have on our digestion, overall health and mental well being. In the last few years huge advancements in technology used to measure and detect the microbes that live on and in us has allowed researchers to map and track the diversity and the influence these invisible hitch-hikers have on every human being.
The progress in this field of researching the gut brain axis (how the gut is connected to and messages the brain) is changing the way we view health and disease and ultimately paving the way to treat and prevent a host of ailments. This lecture will be co-facilitated by Stephanie Rea (BSc Nutr. Biol) & Wendy Muller (Masters Community Psychology) Both presenters have many years experience working in the community in WA to promote and support family health and wellbeing.
