The Gut-Brain Connection: Nourish Your Mind, Body and Microbiome

Digest the latest research on the gut-brain axis and discover how to holistically nourish your physical and mental health. Followed by Q&A.

By now, you might have heard that your gut is crucial in maintaining your health as a whole. But what does it actually do? And what does a healthy gut look like? Research is mounting that its role extends way beyond the digestive tract, from impacting sleep, immunity, skin, hormones, to mental health. Join Dr Emily Prpa in this talk to digest the latest gut microbiome science on your second brain by exploring the most recent scientific discoveries, while busting myths surrounding fad diets that promise to miraculously boost gut health.

In particular, we will focus on the Gut-Brain axis: the two-way communication between the gut and the brain. With 90% of your serotonin (or the ‘happy hormone’) being produced in the gut, we will answer which foods are in focus when it comes to boosting your mood. Better yet, this microbiome masterclass will holistically guide you towards cultivating a balanced, gut-friendly diet that nurtures both body and mind.
