In this informative three part podcast series, Dr Tim Crowe will be joined by leading experts in the field of gut health to explore the importance of one of the body's most under-rated organs - the gut. From looking at what exactly our gut is comprised of, to analysing emerging research around the link between gut health and mood, The Good Gut podcast series reveals why the role of the gut goes far beyond digestion and can have significant implications on overall health and wellbeing.
Episode Three - The role of the gut in asthma, allergies and chronic inflammatory disease
In the third episode, Dr Tim Crowe will be joined again by Dr Emma Beckett, molecular nutritionist exploring how the microbes living in the gut help to regulate the immune response we see in inflammatory conditions such as asthma, eczema and coeliac disease. Given that inflammation plays a role in chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, helping our gut to stay healthy may lie at the heart of proactive wellbeing and disease prevention.
Episode Two - The role of the gut in mental health
In part two, Dr Tim Crowe will be joined by world-renowned Professor Felice Jacka, Director of the Food and Mood Centre at Deakin University. Felice's pioneering research examines how individuals' diets and other lifestyle behaviours impact the risk for mental health conditions. This podcast will highlight emerging research in the vital role the gut plays as the 'second brain' and explore what these new discoveries could mean for future diagnosis.
