In this video, I explain the importance of understanding the relationship between the brain and the digestive system (gut) when it comes to GI disorders and functioning. It is essential to understand the role of the brain and gut upon psychological and digestive concerns. Treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness are shown to be effective. In addition to this video, please review this blog post which discusses several myths regarding the gut-brain connection (click here!).
I plan to make more blogs/vlogs in the future that address strategies to treat and optimize psychological and gastrointestinal health. Until then, you can reach me through my contact page if you have any questions or are interested in starting therapy. <3 Be well!
