This one-day intensive overview will provide a brief exploration of the characteristics, structure, role, and diversity of the human microbiome, as well as how it becomes a key driver in our health status following birth, and continues as a critical, lifelong contributor.

Although it has been acknowledged that the microbiome has enormous influence on immune and intestinal health, it is now apparent that differences in the microbiome are also associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, IBS and allergies. The program will explore the mechanisms of how the microbiome may exert its influence on disease risk factors, together with the gathering evidence that many may be associated with the use of antibiotics.

Overview
Astonishingly, the microbiome provides 10 times the cell numbers and 200 times the genetic diversity of the human host, but it is only recently that its complexity, along with its implications on health, has been fully recognised.

This one-day intensive overview will provide a brief exploration of the characteristics, structure, role, and diversity of the human microbiome, as well as how it becomes a key driver in our health status following birth, and continues as a critical, lifelong contributor.

Although it has been acknowledged that the microbiome has enormous influence on immune and intestinal health, it is now apparent that differences in the microbiome are also associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, IBS and allergies. The program will explore the mechanisms of how the microbiome may exert its influence on disease risk factors, together with the gathering evidence that many may be associated with the use of antibiotics.

The microbiome is a unique part of our physiology that can be manipulated and potentially optimized by use of probiotics and prebiotics. Clinical evidence of the effects of these nutritional factors on health will be discussed, including original, new, and exciting published research by Dr. Plummer and his research team indicating positive benefits in immune function.

Finally, the course will address the potentially revolutionary concept of the opportunity to establish a lifelong optimised flora in the first six months of life, including preliminary research evidence in the area.

KEY LEARNING HIGHLIGHTS
Overview of the current status of understanding of the basic characteristics and structures of the human microbiota
Mechanisms of how the microbiome drives and maintains major parts of our physiology, particularly the immune and mucosal systems
Evidence and potential mechanisms into how the microbiome is associated with chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, IBD, IBS and allergies, providing participants with an accurate understanding of these fundamental processes
Suggested protocols for manipulation of the microbiome for specific health outcomes
