Infant colic and the Microbiome-Gut-Brain

Practical Considerations for the Integrative Practitioner

with Belen Vasquez
Monday, 1 July 2024 at 19h UK time
Infant colic is common in newborns yet there is no single effective method to provide relief. New evidence shows that the microbiome-gut-brain (MGB) axis may be involved. This suggests that the root causes of colic are many and so are the choice of treatments.

Belén Vázquez first experienced the effects of the MGB when her 6 years old boy recovered from learning difficulties and hyperactivity in just two weeks of a gluten-free diet. This transformative event 15 years ago set her on a holistic path that has led to a lifetime of learning.
In this talk, Belén will share current evidence of the role of the infant’s gut on the onset of colic as well as influencing factors during this formative period. The MGB is a piece often missed by complementary health modalities. We will learn about the science behind the MGB and some practical considerations for the integrative practitioner.
