What is the best way to explain the connection between gut bacteria and mental health? Does it have to do with sugar and why sugar is bad for your brain?
I think it's important to address what I believe is common sense when it comes to looking at how your nutrition affects your brain. Now, if your brain is lacking of good-quality nutrition, or free radicals or damaging inflammatory cells are floating around there in that cranial space of yours, can't you see how there might be an increase in brain tissue that's degrading? That seems like common sense, right? And what's fascinating is that for several years, there has been very little research that attempts to look at the ways foods affect moods and vice versa.

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 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.

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.

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.
