Did you know....
1. About the human microbiome
Human beings are made up of trillions of human cells and trillions of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi etc)
The microorganisms that live on and in us are called the human microbiome.
2. About vaginal birth
Scientists have discovered that during vaginal birth, the baby acquires lots of beneficial microorganisms to help seed the infant gut microbiome.
3. About breastfeeding
These beneficial microorganisms in the baby's gut are fed by the special sugars in breast milk.
4. About infant immune system training
This ensures the right beneficial microrganisms are present in the infant gut to optimally train the infant immune system.
= Vaginal birth + breastfeeding
➡️ "Seed and feed"
➡️ This helps protect a baby's long-term health
But there's so much more to learn!
That's why we have created our courses!
"If we miss the window at birth then the immune system never matures correctly. If you upset this process in early life then we may have consequences later and that can lead to production of disease later in life."
- Prof. Rodney Dietert, Professor Emeritus of Immunotoxicology, Cornell University
Dr Dietert is one of the professors featured in our MICROBIOME COURSES

“I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for Toni's free courses.
The passion is palpable and the science makes sense.
My background is hospital-based, and this research is not taught. My private practice is enriched having discovered the Microbiome courses. Plus, the presentations are fun and captivating! They stick with you! I never pass them up!”

“Wow. I learned so many more amazing things about
The best thing about the course is that it is easy to follow, and
has so many experts featured.
There is just enough reiteration of previous
modules to reinforce the learning.
The course gave me a deeper
understanding about why each mother's breastmilk is the food designed for her
baby, and a reminder that formula will never compare no matter what they add to
