Next CAM webinar - The Effects of Ageing on the Microbiome

Lissa Leader will be hosting a CPD accredited webinar in association with IHCAN magazine on Tuesday, 21st March at 6.30pm.

As we grow older, our microbiome changes and this may have an impact on digestive health, intimate health, and immune function. During this webinar, we will assess whether the microbiome might hold a key to the ageing process, and we will also explore how probiotics could play a part in a holistic support protocol to help optimise the microbiome of older people.
