This is a life changing online course that teaches management of the gut microbiome for superior wellbeing.

Learn to manage the gut microbiome for improved health outcomes, with practical strategies and approaches to health.

• recognise signs of dysbiosis - where the gut microbiome is not efficient or is out of balance.
• understand how the microbiome functions
• come up with strategies and approaches which can be implemented into a focused plan for improving health
• Describe how genetics influence the gut microbiome and how the use of metagenomics and metabolomics has enhanced our understanding of its functioning.
• Distinguish influencing factors on microbial colonies, which produce good or bad outcomes on human health.
• Explain how the gut can be managed to achieve good health, thus avoiding dysbiosis.
• Distinguish common diseases of the GI tract, the role of immunity in fighting gastrointestinal disease and advances in microbiome treatments of disease.
• Explain the effect diet and nutrition has on the gut microbiome.
• Explain the gut-brain axis and how it affects our mood, behaviour, and mental health.
• Analyse and combine theory with functional strategies to enhance microbiome diversity and abundance.

Gut microbiome management is for people who:

  • need more energy
  • suffer chronic pain conditions
  • have disturbed sleep
  • experience low immune responses
  • experience digestive discomfort
  • suffer autoimmune disorders
  • are stressed or overwhelmed
  • have mood disturbance
  • practice restrictive diets or fasting
