Your Gut Knows What's Up! Explore the Links Between Gut Health, The Microbiome and Various Ailments: Rebecca Hunton, M.D.

Did you know that your gut has more neurotransmitters than your brain? It also has more neurons than your spinal cord and your peripheral nervous system! This ‘second brain’ is also directly connected with the one in our skull and research is indicating that it is at least partially responsible for everything from our mental state and mood to all kinds of diseases found throughout the body. Our gut is also home to over 100 trillion bacteria – more cells than we actually have in us! It turns out that there is a constant tug of war between the good and the bad. The foods we eat, the antibiotics we take (both natural and pharmaceutical), the environment in which we live, all influence the microbiome. When the balance is tipped the wrong direction, it contributes to our mental health and a whole host of diseases and dysfunction. Attend this session to learn 5 easy ways to naturally bring your microbiome back into balance!
