1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness in a given year.

According to the CDC, more than 50% will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime.

And yet, we’ve been taught that mental illnesses are simply the result of genetics or a chemical imbalance in the brain.

But certain environmental toxins and hidden microbial infections can also trigger these illnesses and other brain disorders. It is now clear that microbes influence brain function.

If you, or a loved one, are suffering from a misdiagnosed mental health condition, know that there is hope. You can find the root cause.

Your psychobiome is key. It has more to do with your depression, anxiety, brain fog, and other debilitating symptoms than you think.

When you know what the root cause of your mental health issue is, you can take appropriate action and regain control of your life. Today you can find out exactly how to do that at the Microbes and Mental Health Summit.


At the Microbes and Mental Health Summit, dive deep into the unique, complex relationship between our microbes and our mental health. Uncover the impact that the psychobiome has on our brains and wellbeing.

Learn from 50+ of the world’s leading experts in mental health, environmental toxicants, chronic infections, immunology and more, on how to guard your mental health from environmental toxicants and microbe-inflicted brain disorders.

These are the skills you will learn at this summit:

  1. Know what are the ​​indicators of microbial imbalances or pathogens in your body.
  2. Recognize which environmental toxins could be causing your brain disorders.
  3. Understand the root cause of your mental health issues and take appropriate action.

Plus, we’ll show you which cutting edge therapies can improve your mental well-being so you can recover your mood and brain function and start to live a happier, more focused life.

At this summit we will change the approach to mental health and brain disorders with expanded treatment options, especially for those who still have issues after conventional treatment strategies.

Ultimately, this summit aims to bring hope to those who have been told there is none.

Approximately 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut

Serotonin is a chemical that plays a vital role in regulating our mood, appetite, and sleep. Imbalances in gut bacteria can lead to lower serotonin levels, negatively impacting your mental health.

This is just one of the many topics we’ll cover at the Microbes and Mental Health Summit.
