"All disease starts in the gut" - Hippocrates [masked] BC)
Gut health is critical for our overall health. Poor gut health is much more than just discomfort. It's weight gain. It impacts our mood. Our immune system.
For March, we'll be talking about how our gut works, what impacts it and how to track gut hormones and the microbiome.
Francesco Polito from will be talking about testing digestive health with the Comprehensive Stool Analysis (https://www.doctorsdata.com/comprehensive-stool-analysis/).
Francesco gave a great talk in January (http://www.slideshare.net/Quantified_Self_Dublin/biomarkers-in-practice-biohacking-and-improving-health) on improving overall health, so it's great to get him back to speak again.
The Comprehensive Stool Analysis test is the go-to test now for people who are struggling with gaining improvements in their conditions through existing means.
You can contact Francesco on his website here (http://www.hooporganic.com/).
Natasha Kapoor from the UCD Metabolic Medicine (https://twitter.com/metabolicmed) department will be talking about gut hormones. How they impact our appetite, mood and health.
More info on this on a radio interview with Pat Kenny and Natasha's supervisor Prof Carel Le Roux.
Further speakers to be confirmed.
