The fourth and last lecture in the Gut Health Series discusses the relationship between the microbiome and mental health.
Although mainly based on animal studies at present, there is a significant amount of evidence to show how the gut microbiome can affect people in terms of depression and anxiety. In this lecture, several herbs are discussed in terms of their effect on microbiota and mental health.
This lecture is supported by audio and written text.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in a holistic approach to medicine. The course is well structured with a focus on practical applications. As a medical research scientist by trade, I chose this course in particular owing to two factors : 1: the material is often backed by research verified information and 2: the lecturers are practitioners with real life experience.
The course itself is provided in a flexible online learning approach which works perfectly for me. I have a young family and a full time job and I find that the lecturers have been very approachable and flexible all the way through the course.
I really enjoy this course and I really feel like I will be well prepared to take up a career in this field.
