The Gut-Brain Connection to Moods

One of my major issues with psychotherapy is that it doesn’t account for the reality that a lot of the stress and mood issues people have is beyond their own perception. It’s in their gut. What people think is “them” often bacterial dysfunction looking to be corrected. Talk therapy doesn’t fix the root problem. Nutrition needs to be addressed.

The gut-brain axis is a two-way sophisticated 2 way communication between the inner intestines and the brain. Microbes in the gut produce molecules that become neurotransmitters and hormones based on what food is introduced.

The emotional and cognitive center of your brain is linked to the inner intestines. Health of the gut determines the health of the brain and the immune system, and vise versa.
