Gut Health

Payment plans available - email support@naturalwellnessacademy.org

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.
