This Masterclass will focus on dietary approaches to balancing and enhancing the microbiome. Research indicates that changing what we eat can rapidly change our microbiota, but only long-term change can provide long-term benefits. We’ll explore how healthy people can maintain and support health through prebiotic and probiotic rich food and the science behind this approach to nutritional support. When health is out of balance, different therapeutic diets are utilized, including Elimination Diets, the FODMAP and Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which will all be covered in detail so you can best support your clients and patients in the health restoration process.
