    S2 Ep 4: 'The microbiome and healthy ageing' featuring Lissa Leader Registered Nutritional Therapist (CNHC), Registered Nutritionist (mBANT)

    S2 Ep 4: 'The microbiome and healthy ageing' featuring Lissa Leader Registered Nutritional Therapist (CNHC), Registered Nutritionist (mBANT)

    Lissa Leader is a nutritional therapist, and has her own company – Nutrileader – and also works for Optibac, so is well placed to speak about the microbiome and healthy ageing.
     
     Lissa explains how the gut microbiome keeps changing from birth all the way through childhood and adulthood, and how this can affect a broad range of conditions, including: allergies, digestive health, bone and muscle strength, “inflammaging” and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. We also discuss the very different microbial balance in the urogenital tract, and their potential role in urinary tract infections, thrush and localised tissue health, particularly during menopause.
     
     Lissa then goes on to describe how best to support all of this is a clinical setting, including the pros and cons of a number of dietary factors, and how to choose the right probiotic supplement.
     
     “If we look at, say, the Lactobacillus rhamnosus strains, Lactobacillus rhamnosus have multiple strains, one of which is the GR-1 strain, and the GR-1 strain will
     adhere to cells in the urogenital tract, whereas the GG strain will actually adhere to cells in the gastrointestinal tract. So we can see that strains can exert completely different effects on the body because that’s where they naturally like to gravitate to and and adhere to.”

    S2 Ep 3: 'The microbiome and the gut-brain axis' featuring Kiran Krishnan, Ph.D

    S2 Ep 3: 'The microbiome and the gut-brain axis' featuring Kiran Krishnan, Ph.D

    This week microbiologist Kiran Krishnan, Ph.D tells us why he’s so microbiome obsessed, particularly when it comes to brain and cognitive health. We talk about neurotransmitters and inflammation, anxiety and depression, cognitive dysfunction and Alzheimer’s. And then how to take what we know so far about the microbiome and how we can support it practically and holistically.

    “Part of building resilience is building a healthy diversified microbiome because it's your microbiome that provides your resilience. It's your microbiome that codes for the vast majority of capabilities in your body, which includes things like detoxification and metabolisation of chemistries, and the function of your liver, to get rid of things that you put in your body that shouldn't be in your body. All of those things, right, the resilience we all wish to have comes from a healthy microbiome.”

    S2 Ep 2: 'How mindfulness can support our clinical practice' featuring Katie Sheen Dip.ION, FdSc, PGCE, MA Education

    S2 Ep 2: 'How mindfulness can support our clinical practice' featuring Katie Sheen Dip.ION, FdSc, PGCE, MA Education

    Katie Sheen is a mindfulness teacher and speaker, a nutritional therapist, and has a Masters degree in education. 
    She shares her experiences using mindfulness with nutrition clients – how mindfulness can help with making nutritional changes, and how nutritional support can help with being more settled and mindful. “It’s a fascinating two-way street we can offer people”

    Katie also shares how mindfulness and self-compassion helped her deal with her own cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

    “And what was amazing was that in that moment I thought: My poor body… my poor body… I can see how much it’s suffering. And again, what a gift to be able to switch immediately into compassion, rather than fear – and there definitely was fear, I’m not going to pretend there wasn’t fear, there was fear as well, but the fear wasn’t of my own body. And that was one of those doorways for me into really taking care of myself.”

    Themes include deep listening, compassionate speech, how to become more self-aware and use that to showing kindness and care to ourselves.

    CPD events combining nutrition and mindfulness offered by Katie as part of the Pharma Nord UK Education Team are summarised here.

    S2 Ep 1: 'Mitigating menopause health risks' featuring Sally Duffin Reg.Nutritionist MBANT rCNHC

    Sally Duffin is a registered nutritionist and nutritional therapy practitioner and writer, and author of “Natural Nutrition for Perimenopause: What to eat to feel good and stay sane”.

    In this episode we focus on post menopausal health risks such as cardiovascular health, dementia and bone strength, and Sally shares how we can mitigate some of those risks with lifestyle and nutrition. This brings up topics of gender inequality in healthcare, the role of HRT, and the amount of research that still needs to be done.

    “It also comes back to this shift that needs to happen about how women see themselves, how the medical system is treating women, how society is treating women, and it’s all connected to reframing it all, actually, and making sure that we get the healthcare that we deserve, that funding is given, training is given to medical professionals about menopause and perimenopausal care, post menopausal care”
