Publisher's Summary

Cutting-edge neuroscience combines with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome to inform this practical guide that proves once and for all the inextricable, biological link between mind and body.

We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gut—the decision we made because it “felt right;” the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when we’re stressed out. While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, including Aryuvedic and Chinese medicine, Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut, and more recently, the microbiome—the microorganisms that live inside us—communicate with one another. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, Executive Director of the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress, offers a revolutionary look at this developing science, teaching us how to harness the power of the mind-gut connection to take charge of our health.

The Mind-Gut Connection, shows how to keep the communication brain-gut communication clear and balanced to:

• Heal the gut by focusing on a plant-based diet

• Balance the microbiome by consuming fermented foods and probiotics, fasting, and cutting out sugar and processed foods

• Promote weight loss by detoxifying and creating a healthy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption

• Boost immunity and prevent the onset of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s

• Generate a happier mindset and reduce fatigue, moodiness, anxiety, and depression

• Prevent and heal GI disorders such as leaky gut syndrome; food sensitivities and allergies; and IBS; as well as digestive discomfort such as heartburn and bloating

• And much more.

Dry but very interesting

The book is well presented by the narrator. I found the content technical enough that it was good to listen to in shorter (1 hour was a good length) sections so I could mull over what was said before moving on to the next part.

Had to stop - dreadful experiments on monkeys

This book so fascinating - but I am putting it aside because he is constantly referring to experiments on animals, including monkeys & their babies. I know something of how sadistic these experiments are & I just can’t get oast them for the ‘valuable’ knowledge science garners from such cruelty.
