What is this workshop about?

We have two nervous systems operating autonomously in our body, and one of them is located, albeit secretly for many, in the gut. Nicknamed the Second Brain, research has shown significant links between the functioning of the second brain and emotional well-being, social relationships and even some mental illnesses.

This workshop aims to broaden knowledge about the relationship between the brain and the gut, as well as the importance of the microbiome, i.e. the microorganisms that inhabit our gastrointestinal tract (such as bacteria!). Practical strategies for regulating the microbiome, improving gastrointestinal health and, above all, improving mental health will also be provided.
