Why the Gut is the Key to Health

We’re joined by Dr. Emeran Mayer; a professor, gastroenterologist, scientist, and author about the latest research on the gut microbiome, the connection between the gut microbiome and the immune system, and how we can improve the health of our gut to support our overall health.


We discuss:

  • What is a healthy gut microbiome
  • Is it nature or nurture that determines the health of our gut?
  • The link between the gut microbiome and the immune system
  • Why diet has a major role in how our immune system functions
  • How inappropriate activation of the immune system is implicated in chronic disease
  • How diet can be used to modify the immune system back to its normal state
  • The importance of fibre, and a largely whole foods, plant-based diet
  • The role of chronic stress in gut health and immune function
  • How processed foods impact the gut microbiome
  • The 3 key things we can do to support our gut microbiome
