It's All in the Gut
Yes, that’s right. We’re talking gut health. Why? Because there is a growing body of research which posits the gut as gateway to the mind. There are connections being made between memory loss and underlying gut issues such as: disorder of the gut microbiome, leaky gut, and/or poor diet. The good news? These are very much treatable health issues. See where we are going here? Within this reframing, dementia/Alzheimer’s prevention and mitigation enter the realm of the possible.
Click here to listen to an amazing BBC Radio 4 programme about the power of bacteria in the gut to alter the mind (I know!) and click here to read a fascinating interview from @goop with former cardiologist, now microbiome expert, Dr. Steven Gundry about his theory that Alzheimer’s originates in the gut.
I guarantee the one-two punch of both listening to the programme and reading the interview will have you rethinking what you know about dementia/Alzheimer’s.
