About this Event

𝗝𝗼𝗶𝗻 𝗗𝗿 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗲 𝗗𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗘𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻 𝗠𝗼𝗿𝗿𝗼𝘄 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗮 𝗷𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘆 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗮𝘀𝗰𝗶𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗮 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵: 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝘂𝘁-𝗯𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻-𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻.

Come along to the City of South Perth Community Hall on November 6th to discover:

--- The role of the gut-brain connection in the development of persistent pain and fibromyalgia.

--- How changes in your gut microbiome initiate changes in your brain that contribute to pain and fatigue.

--- Why poor gut health can be detrimental to those living with fibromyalgia, among other forms of chronic pain.

--- How to recover and restore your gut health through nutrition and lifestyle interventions.

--- What medical options are available to those with fibromyalgia and gut health challenges.

Dr Stephanie Davies, medical director and co-founder of Painless, has over three decades experience helping people overcome persistent pain. She is a pain medicine specialist and the patron for the Fibromyalgia Support Network WA.

𝗘𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻 𝗠𝗼𝗿𝗿𝗼𝘄, 𝗡𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗘𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗼𝗿.

Initially a patient at Painless, and now our Nutritional Educator, Ellen Morrow has lived and breathed persistent pain for close to four decades. She combines her nutrition education expertise with a passion for helping others also living with pain.

You may have heard the gut referred to as 'the second brain'. Why? Well, in addition to housing the dynamic ecosystem that is your gut microbiome, your gut also contains over five hundred million neurons. Collectively, these neurons form your enteric nervous system: aka, your 'second brain'.

Your gut (including the microbiome and 'second brain') and your brain work together in close proximity. They share a bidirectional line of communication – referred to as the gut-brain axis – and depend on input from each other to function optimally. When one is disrupted, so too is the other - and this is where persistent pain comes into play.

Pain researchers have identified critical differences in the gut microbiomes (and overall gut health) of people with persistent pain conditions, like fibromyalgia. They've also discovered medical and nutritional interventions aimed at restoring optimal gut health can have a dramatically positive impact on a person's pain, energy levels, mood, sleep and general wellbeing.

In this deep dive session, we'll be exploring the many points of connection between the gut, the brain and your pain. We'll also discuss practical solutions and nutrition strategies to help restore your gut health and manage your pain.
