007: A Holistic Approach to Nutrition, Mental Health and the Gut-Brain Connection with Dr. Janelle Sinclair
If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook at all lately, you’ve noticed that I’ve started talking more about the connection between nutrition and mental health. When you think about the gut-brain connection even on a common sense level, it makes sense that…
What you eat fuels your body.
Your brain is an organ in sync with your body.
Therefore, what you eat fuels your brain.
Most recently in my studies I've wanted to better understand the chemical level of how what we eat translates in the brain and if there were tested and proven results that showed a difference in mental and emotional well-being based on the food choices people made. Since the brain is an organ that also undergoes a biochemical process, it brings into question how the quality of the food we put into our bodies could affect our brains and mental well-being.
