Mental Health Gut Health
I want to talk about the correlation between your brain and your gut, and how the importance of having a good floral gut bacteria can actually affect your mental health. Did you know that the brain and the gut are actually made of the same type of tissue? That's why they say they call it the second brain here. But, things like serotonin, or dopamine or Gaba, those are all what I call happy hormones and they can be produced in the gut if you have a healthy running digestive system.

When you have high insulin levels, is that a symptom of something related to your diet? For example, does your blood sugar spike after eating?
The biggest questions related to your health come from the body's reaction to sugars, and I have found that fake sugars make brain health worse. The more sugar you eat, the greater the chance of brain fog and the greater chance that there is a resistance to sugar. Ultimately, we have to focus on finding a cure for insulin resistance cure. This podcast addresses it.

Mental Power Digestion
Is there a connection between your gut and your brain? Is the brain or the gut more powerful? Knowing which has the power to control what you eat is the key to resolving any health or digestion related issues you may have.
What part of your body is more powerful in determining what you eat, you brain or your gut? I'm going to use an illustration to prove my point.
But let's say you've got that 3:00 pm crashing and you start to feel lethargic and your mind's saying, "Hey we need some food, food, food," and you start thinking about all those specific foods. But let's say you go pick out some potato chips, some sour cream and onion. You take that back to your desk, all the sudden you eat it. You feel, "Oh, that's great. And then about 10 minutes later you feel like you're hungry again.
Digestion Immune System
I'm gonna be giving you 10 amazing facts you probably didn't know about your digestive system. Number one, that the gut is the only organ in the body that can actually function without regulatory oversight from the brain. Even your heart can't do that. Number two, there are over a hundred million brain cells located in your gut. That's actually more that's than found in the spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system.
Probiotics Reduce Inflammation
If you believe in probiotics, you've probably wondered "When's the best time to take probiotics?" or "What are the best probiotics to take?" Before you address that, let's look at the truth. Getting into the best physical, mental, and emotional shape takes planning, education, and research. More specifically, it begins with better gut and digestive health. Probiotics are the key, but knowing what the best sources of probiotics to take or which natural sources of probiotics will benefit you long term is JUST as important as taking it themselves. Where do you begin to learn which probiotics are important to your health? To continue reading, listen t,o, or download this podcast, follow the link.
What Really Causes Candida?
What is Candida or what is a yeast infection? Is Candida bad and what causes an overgrowth of it?
Candida Albicans is the most common type of yeast infection found in the mouth, intestinal tract and vagina, and it may affect skin and other mucous membranes. If the immune system is functioning optimally, this type of yeast infection is rarely serious. However, if left unchecked, it breaks down the walls of the intestinal lining and penetrates into the bloodstream, ultimately causing leaky gut syndrome and can affect everyone.
In this episode of my podcast, I discuss why yeast infections are a result of something getting out of control that most people eat everyday. In fact, yeast infections are not just a woman's problem. If you want to eliminate future health problems with this yeast in your body, it's important to know the facts. To listen or download this podcast, follow the link to read more.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
