The Gut-Brain-Body Connection

The interconnectivity of our digestive system to all other systems, especially with our brain and nervous system, is getting more attention now than ever before (and rightfully so).

This connection is much more vast and complex than we had originally anticipated.  Conditions such as difficulty concentrating, poor memory, depression, anxiety, and even migraine headaches, which were originally thought to have sole origin in the brain, have seen great improvement byway of also addressing the digestive system.  For years, skin conditions like eczema or acne have been treated topically, without any element of gut healing.  By also healing the gut, through lifestyle, dietary and supplemental adjustments, we are able to see improvements in conditions that weren’t originally thought to have a direct link to the gut.

Skin concerns, such as rashes, acne, or eczema?  Remember to also address and heal the gut.

Cognitive concerns, such as brain fog, memory loss, chronic migraines, ADHD?  Remember to also address and heal the gut.

Mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder?  Remember to also address and heal the gut.

Digestive health should be addressed as part of the treatment protocol for any of the above concerns.  Often times, this is where we really see the long-term, sustained improvement.

If you have any questions, or interested to learn more about digestive health, contact one of my clinics or message me directly.

Yours in health,

Dr. Alison Gottschalk, ND
