World-renowned gut health expert, Dr. Emeran Mayer, will join Ilchi Lee, the creator of Belly Button Healing and Brain Education, for a lecture hosted by ChangeYourEnergy.com and Body & Brain Yoga and Tai Chi on Sunday, September 18, 2016 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the Moseley-Salvatori Conference Center in Los Angeles, California. The two will discuss the close connection between the brain and the gut at the event, called “Healthy Gut Happy Brain,” and how this connection affects every aspect of our lives, from mood to thoughts to choices to health and more. Participants will also experience Belly Button Healing, a new, simple and holistic gut health technique that takes advantage of and strengthens the gut-brain connection and leads to greater clarity, stamina, and vitality of body, mind, and spirit.

Both speakers have a keen interest in Western and Eastern approaches to health and have applied them in their work. At this lecture, participants will see these approaches interwoven as these experts and bestselling authors with different backgrounds come together.
