FB live: gut-brain connection

Gut-Brain Connection

Do you wonder why you have mood swings that are out of your control? Can someone reverse Alzheimer's Disease by healing their gut?

You’ve probably used the phrases “I have butterflies in my stomach,” or “I have a gut feeling about this”. Have you ever wondered why so many of these sayings involve our brains and tummies?

As it turns out, it’s not such a coincidence. In fact, the more we learn about the human gut, or our gut microbiome, the more it’s clear that it really is our “second brain.”

Join syncH Live Clinic with Dr. Antonella Aguilera-Ruiz, ND for a deeper understanding of the connection between the brain and the digestive system. She will also talk about the natural remedies that can enhance our gut-brain connection.

What do we know?

We're learning that the underlying cause of many imbalances like mood disorders, cognitive decline or autoimmunity may reside in the gut. With signals traveling from the gut to the brain and from the brain to the gut, this is a crucial pathway that can be leveraged for healing. 

Why should you attend?

In this Live Clinic, you'll learn all about the gut/brain connection, including: 

  • how our gut bacteria and digestive symptoms affect our mood
  • how the gut may be a new line of treatment for many chronic diseases
  • easy ways to eat to balance our gut bacteria and minimize inflammation

We'll be discussing the latest research and how to rebalance your gut bacteria by incorporating simple lifestyle and dietary changes.
