Why the GutBiome Course?

The new paradigm of bacteria as friend rather than foe has forced us to reexamine our medical practices and lifestyle, and to consider how these choices affect the life of our microbes—and how our microbes in turn affect us. Now more than ever it’s critical to understand the complex relationship between microbial and human health. This one-of-a-kind online course takes you step by step through the challenging landscape of the gut microbiome, and provides you with the clinical tools to help connect the dots and restore health.
