Publisher’s Description: 

Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome, a practical guide in the tradition of Wheat Belly and Grain Brain that conclusively demonstrates the inextricable, biological link between mind and body.

We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gutthe decision we made because it felt right; the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when were stressed out. While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut, and more recently, the microbiomethe microorganisms that live inside uscommunicate 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 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 healthy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption

boost immunity and prevent the onset of neurological diseases such as Parkinsons and


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.
