Today’s podcast is going to shed light on the concept of the microbiome and its possible link to the brain and disorders like dementia and Parkinson's. For years we've heard that our diets could possibly be linked to different diseases...but connections between our guts and our brains? How can that be?
To help our listeners better understand what the microbiome really is and these possible connections to brain disorders, we have Dr. Aline Charabaty in the studio. Dr. Charabaty is the Director of the Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease at Sibley Memorial Hospital - Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Washington, DC and very knowledgeable on the microbiome.
Thank you to the Walter and Jean Boek Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
