Gut Health

Launching in March 2018!

Groundbreaking new studies in the Mind-Gut Connection make this field of specialization invaluable for holistic wellness practitioners. The Microbiome aka gut bacteria outnumber the human body’s cells 10 to 1. The brain, the gut and the trillions of microorganisms living in the gut communicate with each other. Obesity, low immune response, mood disorders and skin conditions can all be linked to the relationship between the mind and the gut. In this program, you will learn the biology of the intestinal system, how to balance the gut through food and lifestyle, how to boost immunity in prevention of serious diseases, generate a happier mindset, and reduce fatigue, moodiness, anxiety, and depression.

Bio-Individuality teaches us that not everyone gets the same results from a diet or eating philosophy. Instead of studying 100 different diets, our students focus on two in a fun and engaging research project, which is shared with the other students in a compilation study.

The Mind-Gut Guru Coaching Certification consists of 60 hours spread across 6 learning experiences (see curriculum below) of guided self-study, research, webinars, teleconferences, one-on-one mentoring, and a final project. Each learning experience features a multidimensional learning plan, which consists of a reading from 2 main textbooks, online research, videos, and participation in webinars and teleconferences.
