Explore the gut brain superhighway

Don’t miss the Guild’s major event on The Gut Brain Axis on the evening of February 12th, 2018.  The key role of gut bacteria in the health of the brain is now the subject of pioneering research worldwide, opening the way to a novel class of psychobiotics for the treatment of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders.

 As it’s a two-way mechanism, new alliances include pairing gastroenterologists with psychiatrists to treat inflammatory bowel conditions.

 Our four expert speakers are epidemiologist Professor Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth; psychiatrist Professor Ted Dinan, leading researcher on the gut microbiota’s influence on brain function and development; GP Dr Rangan Chatterjee, BBC1’s Doctor in the House; naturopath Lucinda Miller, who specialises in natural solutions to children’s health problems.
