Ever heard your “GUT is your SECOND BRAIN?”
Did you know that your gut can cause depression and especially when the gut’s immune system is activated due to infection, resolving that inflammation and addressing that infection can make all the difference!
In this episode, I review a patient’s case who was suffering from a major depressive disorder, extreme anxiety, insomnia and diarrhea for the last several years.
The scientific evidence is there to know and realize that gut health, digestive health, and even our immune health is critically important for our brain health. I want to empower you to use this knowledge and the resources to your advantage. Watch, learn, and SHARE to save lives and let’s help bring more people the answers they need to escape the depths of depression!
The relationship and evidence are clear that gut health will impact your mental health and it’s time to put that science into practice! If you want help, call us at 931-591-2010 and schedule a consultation or fill out our form below!
