Our gut has a direct line of communication with our brain. Lodged in the tissues of our gut, from our throat to our rectum, we have over 200 to 600 million neurons (brain cells), the equivalent of a cat or dog brain. This intimate relationship between our gut and our brain illustrates this intimate relationship between the body and mind.
Have you ever experienced “butterflies” or your stomach “dropping”? Our gut is sensitive to our emotions, and the relationship goes both ways. The way we eat can play an important part in inflammatory processes, which has been linked to several mental health difficulties including anxiety and depression.
Did you know that we need about 90 different nutrients per day to boost our health? Those nutrients are found in our diet (food/ water). Therefore a diverse and balanced diet ensures a healthy body, mind and spirit. A Chinese saying says: “disease enters through the mouth”.
Research has shown that our diets, or more specifically deficiencies in certain nutrients, contribute to the development of disease. Research has found a correlation between biochemical imbalances and depression, anxiety and psychotic symptoms.
Did you know that our brain is made out of 78- 85 percent water? Imagine the impact on your thinking when you are dehydrated! Research has shown that when your brain depletes in 1 per cent of water, you are likely to have a 5 per cent decrease in cognitive/brain functioning!
