MUMBAI: Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine once said, “Death sits in the bowels. And bad digestion is the root of all evil.” This quote stands true even today.
Your gut is the epicenter of your health. 70% of your immunity lies there. From integrative and lifestyle medicine to Ayurveda and even Yoga, gut health is considered the cornerstone of wellness.
Understanding its importance, Holistic Nutrition – Integrative and lifestyle medicine practitioner Luke Coutinho and renowned Padma Shree Awardee Masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor have launched “The Good Gut Program”. Staggered across four weeks, this online educational course is a perfect blend of two beautiful worlds – food and lifestyle.
“Scientists and researchers are now calling the gut our second brain. Beyond immunity, your gut microbiome also has the power to affect your emotions from happiness, sadness, depression, anxiety, and more. The gut-brain axis is real. How you eat, move, sleep, and think – are all factors that come into play in maintaining the delicate balance between good and bad gut bacteria. Any imbalance leads to gut dysbiosis. One in two people I consult today struggle with gut issues like acidity, bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, constipation, IBS, and diarrhea, among others. Through the Good Gut Program, Masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor and I want to empower people to rebuild their gut with the right knowledge, nutrition, and lifestyle tips,” shares Luke Coutinho.
Masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor added, “It has been our commitment and promise over the last 30 years to our audiences to deliver them recipes with good health and great taste. In our unique initiative at Sanjeev Kapoor Academy, we deliver this promise by making the lives of our viewers and learners healthier and more prosperous in the last 2 years. We have curated online courses that offer upskilling and ways to make lives better through food. In this extraordinary initiative at Sanjeev Kapoor Academy, Luke and we have come together to build your gut health to make a fitter healthier you”
The course is open for anyone to take across the globe. It debunks fad diets and is a treasure trove of insights, tips, and techniques to improve digestion, boost focus and increase energy levels.
From decoding the science behind gut health to giving you access to 4 exclusive meal plans and 50+ recipes, the course also shares tips on addressing constipation, bloating, and acidity at their root.
