Mental Health May Depend on the Health of Your Gut Flora

I’m an advocate of good health and strongly believe there is a connection between the gut and the brain. I came to this conclusion on my own by experimenting with intermittent fasting in an attempt to reset my digestive system and change my eating habits.

The results were  life changing. The total elimination of sugar and any processed food allowed me to really feel this connection with my brain and my gut. I no longer had the mental fog that was blocking me from thinking clearly, I was not feeling anxious anymore, in fact I was feeling giddy and optimistic about my day. Physically, I no longer had sporadic rashes on my skin, I started to see changes on my nails and the texture of my hair in my energy levels were much better that what they used to be.

Now I watch what I eat, take my time to read the ingredient labels, take my probiotics every morning and eat fermented foods. After experiencing the change that I feel today there is no way I’m going back to my old eating habits.

I found the article below to be a good source of information to start changing your diet for the better.
