|This is a microscopic ecosystem that lives in our digestive tract, and includes bacteria and yeasts. We have evolved with these microbes over thousands of years. There is a huge amount of evidence now to support the fact that a healthy gut biome actually influences our digestive function, immune system, cardiovascular health, and mental health (gut-brain axis)|
Join Christina Georgallou and myself for a free 1 hour evening discussion on the importance of keeping our microbiome in balance and the things we can do to support it. There will be plenty of time for questions.
We are so fortunate to have this opportunity to ask an expert like Christina questions.
Christina has a BSc.(Hons) in Physiology and a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. She is a registered Nutritional Therapist specialising in Gut health and part of the Optibac family, where she works to communicate the latest research into the microbiome and probiotics to her fellow practitioners and their clients.

Spring is here, and yet it's been a slow start! It's really important to move our bodies at this time of year, and if you struggle to exercise, deep. slow abdominal breathing and visualising walking or exercising has an effect!
The stagnant energy that we sense in nature is also having an effect on our tendons and ligaments. I am certainly feeling stiff in my body.
