Announcing our 2018 “Gut-Instinct” Seminar Series

The Gut and microbiome Is certainly a hot topic in both the medical world, the naturopathic world and the media as hundreds of millions of dollars is being forwarded to research  in how the state of our microbiome affects our health or in many cases, ill-health.

And for good reason… the future is exciting for both the prevention and treatment of innumerable health conditions as Science finally recognises a connection between chronic disease and gut dysbiosis, which supports the core philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine, that ‘disease starts in the gut’.

The human microbiome is the collection of microorganisms or bacteria (known as microbiota) that ordinarily exist in and on the surfaces of the human body. The majority of our microbiota however, reside within the gastrointestinal tract and make up approximately two kilograms of body weight.

Emerging research is increasingly highlighting the significance of the role of our gut and its influence on our mental health, our immunity, our weight, our metabolism and on disease prevention and treatment.

Evidence now links alterations in the gut microbiota to brain and neurological function, psychiatric symptoms, obesity, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, coeliac disease, and autoimmune diseases.

Discoveries such as these deepen our understanding that the human microbiome plays a remarkable role in health and perhaps more attention should be directed towards it beyond simply re-inoculating the gut during and after antibiotic use.
For instance, Professor Rob Knight, who is a leading researcher on the microbiome, is working on the key dietary and lifestyle factors that affect the microbiome. An interesting outcome of his current research is showing that the number of different types of plant food you eat has a very large impact on your gut microbiome. So if you eat a high number of different vegetables you have a very high gut microbiome diversity compared to those who eat few vegies or just a limited type of vegetable where it shows a very low microbiome diversity state.
So ‘Diversity’ is today’s key take-home point in your microbiome health.
