IBS - A Modern Complex Syndrome

Presented by:

Karen Harrison, BSc (Hons) Dip NT and Dr. Ashton Harper, MBBS, BSc, MRCS

We have many different microorganisms residing in our gut, evolving in ever complex communities.

The microbiota is made up from archaea, fungi, viruses and many different bacteria so obtaining healthy digestive function is a fine balance.

Our client's modern lifestyle includes: stress, travel, infection, antibiotic therapy, unfavourable food choices, diseases and emotional wellbeing imbalances and these have links to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).


Can probiotics help with this modern syndrome?

In this webinar we will investigate:

* What is IBS

* The gut flora's role in IBS

* How our modern lifestyle has influenced this syndrome

* The latest research behind the use of probiotics for IBS

Developing a Healthy Gut Flora in Children

Presented by

Claire Barnes, BA (hons), DipNT, mBANT 


In this webinar, we’ll look at how the gut flora develops from infancy to childhood, and how environment appears to have a strong effect. An altered gut flora in children appears to affect immune balance and could possibly lead to later immune conditions such as allergies, asthma and auto-immunity developing.

Studies have also made strong links between conditions such as autism and the gut flora. We’re further seeing an increase in obesity develop in children and an increased risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular conditions, could the gut flora have a role to play here.

How do orally administered live bacteria supplements (probiotics) have an effect on conditions outside of the gut?

Presented by

Claire Barnes, BA (hons), DipNT, mBANT 


Many studies have focused on the effects of live bacteria on conditions within the gut, such as IBS and IBD, however, research into their effects on conditions outside the gut have been less studied. Is it possible to know if these bacterial strains can relocate to other areas of the body and what are the mechanisms used to enable them to do this?


In this webinar we will look at how improving the diversity of the gut microbiome can benefit the microbiota in other areas of the body, such as within the respiratory and urogenital tracts.

Detoxification - The Gut Flora's Role in our Modern Toxic World

 Presented by

Natalie Lamb, NT Dip CNM, mBANT, BA Hons, GAPS


A strong protective gut flora and lining is believed to provide us with some protection against the absorption of toxins and heavy metals. Specific probiotics have been shown to bind to such heavy metals and toxins. These bacteria are known to then be excreted from the body via regular stool movements opposed to being absorbed into the blood stream.

In this webinar we will discuss the research behind certain environmental toxins and how our gut flora either protects us, is harmed by them or is even part of the problem.
