Do you want to learn more about your unique gut ecosystem?

Are you curious as to how healthy your microbiome is?

Do you want to discover new tools and techniques you can use to beneficially modify your microbiome?

If so, Dr Jason Hawrelak's Meet your Microbiome course is for you!

Do you need more specific interpretive guidance to better understand your uBiome or American Gut Project microbiome results?

Do you know:

  • What a healthy Akkermansia population is? What the potential consequences of having too little of this organism are? And how to re-establish it, if your population is too low?
  • Which microbial phyla may be contributing to your low mood or anxiety? And how to eat to change this?
  • How to tell if your bifidobacteria is really extinct?
  • If taking a probiotic supplement or eating fermented foods can really re-inoculate your gut?
  • Which species contribute to metabolic health and help maintain optimal blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity? And which foods and supplements you can use to nourish these specific species?
  • How much Bacteroides you should have?
  • Which little-known group of gut microbes could be contributing to gut inflammation and leaky gut? And what foods you may be eating that are encouraging their growth?

Do you want to meet newly discovered and important gut microbiota species (beyond Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium spp.) and the roles they play in keeping you healthy?

If so, Dr Jason Hawrelak's Meet your Microbiome course is for you!

The gut microbiome is an exciting area of research. Recent studies have connected alterations in this ecosystem with a range of diseases – from gut conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease to other non-gut conditions like anxiety, depression, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and fatty liver.

In this 4-week course, Dr Jason Hawrelak (research scientist, educator and clinician), will answer all of the above questions and more! For more information on Dr Hawrelak, see his bio here.

This course is targeted for health-conscious individuals. If you are a health professional, then the about to be launched Stool Analysis Masterclass course (which covers these areas in more depth plus additional information on the pros and cons of different functional stool testing options) would be a better choice. The Meet your Microbiome course consists of 4 lessons (each is 40-100 minutes in duration; over 4.5 hours of material in total). One lesson is released each week for 4 consecutive weeks:

Lesson 1: The Microbiota - A Vital Human Organ? (77mins)

Lesson 2: Diversity, Phyla balance, Endotoxins, and your Gut Guardians Part 1 (97 mins)

Lesson 3: Gut Guardians Part 2 – Akkermansia, Faecalibacterium & other Butyrate Producers (64 mins)

Lesson 4: The Bad and the Ugly of your Microbiota (37 mins)

Lessons can be studied at your own time and at your own pace. You can start the first lesson whenever it suits you.

After completion of this course, you will:

  • Know “the good, the bad, and the ugly” members of your microbiota
  • Better understand your uBiome and American Gut Project microbiome results
  • Know and be able to implement supplemental and dietary approaches to:
    • increase your ecosystem diversity
    • re-establish healthy populations of some of your major gut bacterial species, such as Bacteroides, Bifidobacterium, and Faecalibacterium spp.
  • Understand what foods to eat to nourish specific microbe populations
  • Know what to avoid eating, or limit in your diet, to suppress certain bacterial populations

Participants will have the opportunity to bring in their own unique microbiome profile to examine, so you’ll be able to see just how healthy your microbiome is!

Stool Microbiome Assessment

•To get the most out of this course, it is recommended that you bring along your own microbiome assessment. A result from a lab utilising molecular techniques to assess your microbiome (such as uBiome or the American Gut Project) is ideal for this purpose.

•The uBiome Gut Explorer test, is perfect for this course (https://shop.ubiome.com/pages/buynow). This is a separate cost and needs to be organised individually by course participants.

•You will still gain much from this course without this stool microbiome assessment. When taught previously, the course has received an exceptional feedback rating from participants who did not have results at the time of the workshop. While having a gut microbiome assessment reinforces and helps facilitate learning in the workshop, it is not necessary to have one prior to enrolling in the course.

Frequently Asked Questions


What currency is the price in?
The price is in US dollars (USD).
How long can I access the course materials?
You will have access to the course content for 4 months and you can print off the pdf notes anytime over this period.
What resources do I get?
You'll get access to the webinars to watch and will have access to a printable pdf copy of the session slides. You'll also get a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
Can I claim continuing professional education points (CPE) after the completion of the course?
Please check with your professional association in regards to their CPE requirements. Some health professionals in some countries will certainly be able to claim the CPE/CPD points for the completion of the courses and webinars (e.g., naturopaths and nutritionists in Australia). You will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
Do I need prior training to get the most out of this course?
No. But understanding key probiotic principles and being aware of common myths in this area will help you get more out of the course. Some short videos focusing on common probiotic myths are available here: https://www.probioticadvisor.com/probiotic-myths/#.Wmsa7TeYM2w
Is it possible to consult with Dr Hawrelak or get him to look over my test results?
To enquire about a consultation with Dr Jason Hawrelak, contact the Goulds Natural Medicine Clinic via email (info@gouldsnaturalmedicine.com.au). Skype appointments are available. He also provides mentoring to healthcare practitioners from all over the world.
Do I need to have a uBiome or other stool test result to take the course?
You will still gain much from this course without this stool microbiome assessment. When taught previously, the course has received an exceptional feedback rating from participants who did not have results at the time of the course. While having a gut microbiome assessment reinforces and helps facilitate learning in the course, it is not necessary to have one prior to enrolling in the course.
I've got another companies' functional stool/faecal analysis report, will this work?
If it is a stool test that utilises modern molecular techniques in their assessment of the gut ecosystem, such as the American Gut Project, then yes, their results can certainly be used in the course. If not, then your report will be of limited usefulness to help you understand the depth and complexity of your gut microbiome and will not include all of the microbes discussed in the course. However, see the answer above about the necessity of having test results to work with.
Do I have to start my course right away - my uBiome results aren't ready yet?
No, you have a 4-month window to complete the course. This allows you to take advantage of a limited-time discount code on the Meet your Microbiome course, for example, and then organise your uBiome (or other) test kits. You can then start the course later when you get your results.
