May 09, 2022

Over the last few years there’s been increasing public interest in “gut health” – research tells us that a healthy gut microbiome can not only help us lose or maintain weight, but also influences so much more, including our mood, our immune response, and a myriad of health conditions. On this episode of the Business Group on Health Podcast, we speak with world-renowned gastroenterologist and neuroscientist, Dr. Emeran Mayer, who studies how the digestive and nervous systems interact in health and disease. We discuss the bidirectional communication between the brain and the gut, the physical and emotional manifestations of the gut-brain connection, and practical ways we can promote a healthy gut microbiome.

SPEAKERS

Emeran Mayer, MD | Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry, UCLA, Executive Director of the G. Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience, Co-Director of CURE: Digestive Diseases Research Center, Author of The Mind-Gut Connection and The Gut-Immune Connection

LuAnn Heinen | Vice President, Business Group on Health
