When you are stressed, did you know that your gut bacteria can change? Did you know that if you suffer from a Traumatic Brain Injury, even something as common as a concussion, within 30 minutes gut permeability increases? There are so many things that impact our gut that then can set off a cascade of events in our bodies. If you are suffering from depression, anxiety, IBS, or one of any number of conditions, you may want to turn to your gut first. It is called the second brain—for good reason—the gut can send signals and chemicals to change the health of your brain.
Dr. Vincent Pedre, gut guru and author of Happy Gut, talks with our Broken Brain Podcast host Dhru Purohit this week on the topic of gut health. They cover a wide range of fascinating topics from the simplest questions such as “Why is it called the gut?” to more complex topics like the role of butyrate in the gut to create new neural connections in the brain.
Dr. Pedre talks about how the gut and the brain are connected, the gut’s role in detoxification, how colon hydrotherapy works, and so much more!
I know you’ll love all the educational information from this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
