South Australian PACFA Branch PD event - 17 November 2018



 Mind-gut connection  - Presented by Dr Sinclair Bode


In recent years, there has been increased awareness of the importance of the gut and its impact on the immune system and on cognition and mood. There are dramatic changes in disease incidence and indeed  increases in anxiety, learning difficulties and food allergy. Could gut function and diet changes be a factor ?

This presentation will look at the importance of healthy gut and how that influences the immune system and neurotransmitter production. The importance of specific nutrients, the gut microbiome with a focus on overgrowth and undergrowth of particular bacteria and yeasts. We will look at different diets and at food reactivity, the rationale for intermittent fasting. Probiotics, prebiotics and what’s an FMT?

Dr Bode has worked in integrative medicine for 20 years and will have you thinking differently before the afternoon session has finished
