The Powerful Impact of Gut Health on our Bodies & Brains

When Giulia was a teenager, she suffered from a range of baffling ailments that made her life miserable. She did her own research, and after a while was able to locate the source of the problem in her gut. Giulia became increasingly fascinated, even enchanted, with the workings of the human digestive tract, and this led her to train as a doctor. She then wrote a popular book all about the gut, digestion, and 'beautiful bacteria'; and is now a doctoral candidate at Frankfurt's Goethe University. Giulia's main area of interest is the link between the human digestive system and overall physical and mental wellbeing. She says there's mounting evidence that understanding the complex workings of the gut may provide clues to greater all-'round health. http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/conversations/conversations-giulia-enders/8341554
