Microbiome – The Gut-Brain Axis

Presenter: Dr. Joel Villeneuve BSc., N

What is the microbiome? How is it connected to the Gut-Brain Axis? Learn how it is one of the “Secrets to the Fountain of Youth”.  Research suggests that up to 90% of health conditions be linked to the microbiome and the gut. Find out which top foods to avoid in your diet and which to increase in order to create a healthy gut-brain connection. Learn all of the other ways, including supplementation, which can protect the microbiome. Your gut-brain axis also affects your memory, concentration and focus.

Learn the relationship between the Microbiome and the following health concerns:

• Leaky Bowel Syndrome
• Autoimmune Diseases: Allergies, Celiac, Arthritis, and Multiple Sclerosis
• Depression and Anxiety
• Chronic Pain and Inflammation
