Spe­cial­ist plugs gut bac­te­ria for health

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

JOIN em­i­nent mi­cro­bi­ol­o­gist and re­searcher John Eller­man (pic­tured) as he takes us on a jour­ney through the hu­man gut.

Call­ing into Air­lie Beach on Mon­day, May 11, as part of his North Queens­land tour, Mr Eller­man dis­cusses the role of pro­bi­otics and gut health in over­all well-be­ing.

A sci­en­tist of more than 35 years in the field, Mr Eller­man has spe­cialised in the field of pro­bi­otics for 30.

Pro­bi­otics are live bac­te­ria and yeasts that are good for your health, es­pe­cially your di­ges­tive sys­tem.

Mr Eller­man be­lieves in or­der to main­tain a healthy di­ges­tive sys­tem we need to en­sure we have enough good bac­te­ria.

Un­for­tu­nately the bal­ance of good bac­te­ria can of­ten be com­pro­mised by a num­ber of ev­ery­day fac­tors such as stress, ex­ces­sive al­co­hol in­take, a poor diet or use of an­tibi­otics or oral con­tra­cep­tives.

Or­gan­iser Lee Hawkins said an en­cour­ag­ing num­ber of tick­ets had al­ready been sold and that for­tu­nately seats were still avail­able.

She prom­ises an in­for­ma­tive and to­tally en­gag­ing talk that’ll pro­vide an un­der­stand­ing as to why “gut health” is so im­por­tant for gen­eral well-be­ing and healthy.

En­try is only $10 and the talk will take place at The Palm House of the BIG4 Adventure Whit­sun­day Re­sort.

To book con­tact Lee Hawkins on 041 429 5480.
