In today’s interview I get to speak with Professor of Genetic Epidemiology and Director of the TwinsUK Registry, Tim Spector (MD), on how our own gut microbiome affects our response to different diets.
#gutbacteria #genetics #biohackerslab
Tim is very passionate about the relationship between our genes, the microbiome and health and nutrition.
Diet and nutrition are a complex issue encompassing numerous factors. How one person responds to a certain food can vary greatly to another, even with closely related individuals.
Tim’s study with identical twins really illustrates this point perfectly and sheds some light on factors that affect our health and how we respond to foods.
In previous interviews we talked about the importance the microbiome has on various aspects of our health. Today, we talk more about what the twin studies have shown and why we should be moving away from generalised advice and focus on personalised nutrition.
If you know someone who is interested in learning more about:
👉What are some of the problems we have in understanding diets 👉Why have the nutritional advice and guidelines we’ve been given failed 👉The importance of the gut microbiome on our nutrition and why it trumps even genetics 👉What other factors influence how we respond to various diets 👉Why how…

Equanimity: The Gifts of Non-Reactive Mindful Presence, with Tara Brach [2020-09-30]
If we want to bring our intelligence, creativity and love into our relationships and world, we need to be able to access an inner refuge of presence. This talk explores how, when we’re reacting from anger, clinging or fear, to pause, reconnect to the immediate experience of “just this” and remember the love and awareness that has room for the changing waves of life.
