The second lecture in the Gut Health Series unpacks the complex nature of the gut microbiome. What is it? Why is it important? And how it responds to changes in diet?
As the gut microbiota is increasingly seen to be pivotal to health and well-being, this talk explores the issues on initial colonisation, the effects of breast or formula-fed infants and diet and disease. Finally, we look at how herbal medicines can reverse or alleviate the effects of gut dysbiosis.
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.
