Food on the GUT Highway to the Brain!

Part of the Mind Body Business Series

Brain Fog… Tiredness all the time… Soooo bloated…

When we feel unwell and have these symptoms, it is natural to make an appointment to see our doctors. But does medicine promote absence of disease or a state of wellness?

In this installation of the AustCham Mind, Body, Business Series, the Australian Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong presents Dr Victoria Tan, Chief Medical Officer of Gleneagles Hospital and Specialist Gastroenterologist & Hepatologist to discuss the latest evidence of how food affects our brains, and vice-versa how our brains affect how the gut functions.

Dr Tan will discuss topics such as foods that cause more or less bloating, how each of us individually digest and are affected the same food differently and what stress actually looks like in our gut. Understanding wellness is the first step towards being well.
