This week we are back with my friend Dr Jerrod Brown to continue our brand-new series: Threats to Emotional Health. Today Jerrod will dive into the fascinating topic of Micro Biota Gut Brain Axis. This topic has been heavily researched worldwide, though not much research has been done in the context of FASD despite the fact that we know digestive health issues are very common in this population. If you are like me, you will be astonished by what you did not know about Micro Biota and the important connection between gut health and brain health.  My friends you will want to grab your notebook and your favourite pen for this informative episode with Dr. Jerrod Brown.

Jerrod Brown, Ph.D., M.A., M.S., M.S., M.S. is a professor, trainer, researcher and consultant with multiple years of experience teaching collegiate courses. Jerrod is also the founder and CEO of the American Institute for the Advancement of Forensic Studies (AIAFS) and the Editor-in-Chief of Forensic Scholars Today (FST).
