In recent years there has been an explosion of research into the Gut-Brain Axis, revealing that there is a 2-way communication superhighway between these 2 organs that has profound impacts on both the physical and mental health of the individual – including anxiety, depression, obesity, diabetes, CVD, autism and schizophrenia.
In this talk, Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist and Neuroscientist Paul Taylor will present a compelling case that humans and their bacteria should be considered part of an essential ecosystem, and will review what the latest research is telling us about the importance of the gut microbiota and the range of environmental and lifestyle factors that influence it - and what we can do about it.L

SUN2I • Stress – The Good, the Bad & the Ugly
13:00 - 14:15
The whole topic of stress is generally pretty poorly understood. In this seminar, Exercise Physiologist & Neuroscientist Paul Taylor investigates how a wide range of hormetic stressors can improve our cellular health and build psychological resilience, as well as how the dark side of stress can drive a whole host of physical and mental health conditions, with insights from stress biology and the science of Psychoneuroimmunology. Paul will also present his Stress Vortex model and show you how you can identify the various stages of the Vortex in your clients and how you can help them deal with the stresses of life as they come and build resilience to stress over time.L
