Starting with the gut, youll learn all about your digestive system – every last twist and turn coming away knowing exactly how your food is broken down and absorbed.
Next, the nervous system. We demystify the complex nervous system and introduce you to the endocannabinoid system – a major regulatory force within your body. Youll learn how the gut and brain talk to each other and the healing potentials that lie within their ability to communicate with one another.
The Gut-Brain Connection Diploma Course will introduce you to a vast number of bacteria! Youre going to have all your questions about the microbiome answered and on top of that, youll be amazed by the influence these microscopic gut-dwellers have on your body, mood and behaviour.
Rather than simply being told that a certain food is bad, we look at the physiology behind its damaging behaviour. Youll also see why you shouldnt feel bad for being drawn to such foods something in your gut is making you!
On the flip side of this, well take a look at gut-healing foods – taking an evidence-based exploration of foods that can help your gut and therefore your mind. Avoiding faddy diets and demonising certain food groups, the Gut-Brain Connection Diploma Course encourages you to eat a rainbow and try foods you may have previously felt unsure about. Probiotics, prebiotics and fermented foods will all be explained to encourage you to welcome them onto your plate.
Youll delve into common and important digestive issues discovering their symptoms and what causes them, and whether there is scope to use your diet to help manage these issues. Youll learn how to spot red flags so that you dont disregard key symptoms.
Youll explore natural remedies for improving gut-brain health, as you learn how to choose and work with healing herbs and essential oils safely, to aid digestive or mood issues, or simply to enhance your gut and the health of your nervous system.
Another organ connected to the brain is the heart. Youll gain an understanding of the fascinating heart-brain connection, looking at aspects of this relationship that apply to the improvement of your gut-brain health.
Finally, youll learn how to sensibly and methodically assess the health of your gut, diet and lifestyle and make achievable, practical, affordable and lasting changes to your life.
Are you ready to eat a diet that will make you feel great outside and in? Then lets get started!
