Beat the Blues: Balancing Your Gut for a Natural Mood Boost this Winter

The deep connections between gut and brain health are frequently overlooked. 

It’s a fact that alterations in the gut microbiome can lead to a whole host of symptoms, including changes in mood and brain function. These trillions of bacteria are interconnected with the vast signaling and communications taking place between the gut, brain, immune system and hormones. The microbiome even creates many of the biochemicals the brain uses to process emotion and thought. 

When the microbiome is healthy, your mood is lifted and you experience a deep sense of well-being that can never come from a pill. In an unhealthy state, it’s common for anxiety, depression, brain fog, and memory and concentration issues to pop up. For the greatest impact on brain health, look to the microbiome for the answers.
Foods that Harm Your Gut & Halt Weight Loss Goals

The true key to weight loss may not be what you think it is. 

It doesn’t require following a fad diet, eating like a caveman, or spending hours at the gym. In fact, the secret is locked deep inside each of us… waiting to be tapped into for health, vibrancy and yes, weight loss.

I am talking about the trillions of bacteria in the intestine making up the gut microbiome. This rich community of microbes is intricately connected to all aspects of health including GI function, digestion, brain health, metabolism, immunity and cellular communication. When they are healthy, so are we. But, if the microbiome is suffering, our own health is diminished, inflammation soars and weight gain ensues.
