What is the human microbiome and what secrets can it unlock about our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing?

Each of our microbiomes are unique, and they play a pivotal role in driving growth, keeping the body healthy, and ensuring all of our organs function the way they should. When our microbiomes are balanced and blossoming, we can feel it. And it feels good.

In this webinar series, we’ll dive into the delicate, microscopic community that makes up our human microbiome to discover how minor fluctuations can impact our mind, body and emotions. From understanding how certain foods send the human microbiome into disarray to understanding the connection between this community of micro-organisms and our mental health, this series will shed some light on our individual selves, helping to better inform our individual journeys to balanced wellness.
