Hippocrates, the ancient Greek doctor known as the father of medicine, is claimed to have said: All disease begins in the gut”. In our modern world, many health practitioners now believe that a healthy gut is critical to good health. Fixing the gut can help prevent and treat common gastrointestinal issues such as stomach aches, gas, bloating and constipation. At a deeper level, repairing the gut can treat and even resolve complex chronic diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), autoimmune diseases, diabetes and heart disease.
In this 90 minute workshop, we will explore the fascinating world of the gut microbiome: the bacteria and other microbes that live in our gut and help us to digest food, synthesize vitamins, and fight off infection. We’ll discuss the healthy foods and lifestyle behaviours that promote optimal gut health, as well as the gut-busting factors in our environment. The focus will be on effective, inexpensive steps that we can take immediately to start creating better health for our future.
