The gut microbiome, consisting of various types of bacteria and the chemicals they produce, plays a crucial role in shaping our bodily functions, including the expression of our genes. Recent years have witnessed an explosion of research revealing significant differences in the gut bacteria between healthy individuals and those diagnosed with chronic diseases. Whether it's an imbalance in specific bacterial populations or a lack of microbial diversity, these factors can contribute to health issues.
The main objective of this course is to increase awareness and present up-to-date research on the gut microbiome, emphasizing its functions and its significant influence on human health. Through a blend of presentations, discussions, case studies, and videos, participants will have the opportunity to delve into recent research discoveries, examine the complex connection between the gut microbiome and health conditions, and acquire knowledge about lifestyle adjustments that promote a varied microbiome. Ultimately, the goal is to establish a diverse microbiome as a proactive approach for preventing or reversing chronic diseases.
