Course overview

The Gut-Brain Continuum: The Merging Science of the Microbiome and the Structure and Function of the Human Neuroendocrine System

This course will provide insights into the new anatomical data on the relationship of the neurologic system with the intestinal barrier system, the role of bacterial and fungal species, and the impact of external factors on the system.

What you will learn

  • Course Summary

  • The beginning of health is increasingly understood to involve the myriad of relationships between the Gut-Brain systems. The continued development of our understanding of the microbiome and its direct and indirect roles on the anatomy and function of the neuroendocrine function of the intestinal lining has revealed the microbiome as ground zero for health and disease. Here we look at the environmental threats and the microbiome defense systems for resilient barriers to protect the immunologic systems of the immune systems of the peripheral and central nervous system, and point to practical methods for you and your patients to preserve genomic health through reconnection with our environment.
    By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

    • Provide insights into the new anatomical data on the relationship of the neurologic system with the intestinal barrier system
    • Recognize the role of the bacterial and fungal species in the function of the neuroendocrine system of the gut
    • Explain the effects of chemical farming, antibiotic use in food production, and in clinical practice on the structure and function

Course includes:

  • Video recording
  • Downloadable audio
  • Speaker handout(s)
  • 1 Quiz
  • Certificate of Completion

About Zach
Zach Bush MD is a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology and hospice care. He is an internationally recognized educator and thought leader on the microbiome as it relates to health, disease, and food systems. Dr Zach founded *Seraphic Group and the nonprofit Farmer’s Footprint to develop root-cause solutions for human and ecological health. His passion for education reaches across many disciplines, including topics such as the role of soil and water ecosystems in human genomics, immunity, and gut/brain health. His education has highlighted the need for a radical departure from chemical farming and pharmacy, and his ongoing efforts are providing a path for consumers, farmers, and mega-industries to work together for a healthy future for people and planet.
