It has long been known that psychological stress could negatively impact the composition of the gastrointestinal tract microbiota. Research conducted over the past decade has shown that alterations in the composition of the microbiota can actually alter emotional behaviour and brain function. This is now being referred to as the Brain-Gut-Microbiota axis. This presentation will look at the mechanisms by which microbes may modify client’s moods (specifically depression); which microbes may be involved; and highlight interventions that can both alter the gut ecosystem and lift client’s spirits.
