Happiness really is an inside job.
More and more research is pointing to the crucial importance the gut plays in keeping our sense of wellbeing in check.
80% of serotonin is made and housed in your gut, so for the ultimate happy pill, sort out your gorgeous guts and the rest should follow!
The digestive tract and the central nervous system maintain a complex two-way line of communication called the Gut Brain Axis.
Your gut is the second brain and your microbiome plays a huge role not only in your mood but your health in general.
There are studies done on mice that show transplanting microbes from ‘depressed’ mice, into the digestive tract of mice that initially appear social and lively cause the healthy mice to take on the characteristics of the ‘depressed’ mice.
Steps we can to nourish our gut include:
- Reducing stress
- Breathing deeply and slowly
- Eating a spray-free diet
- Getting adequate sunshine (Vitamin D!)
- Feed the gut with lots of living probiotics, like Imbibe.
- Be kind and gentle toward ourselves and others
- Remove inflammatory foods
- Add in turmeric, a potent anti-inflammatory
Thank you so much for being here.
I’d love to show you just how easy it can be to nourish your gut with living probiotics.
