The gut bacteria convert food into building blocks for the processes in the body and the brain. When the intestine doesn’t work properly, neither does the brain (8a, 8b, 8c). An injured brain has a slightly different need for nourishment.
Intestinal bacteria make the building blocks you need to feel good. But they are killed off by acid from the diet (coffee, alcohol, fizzy drinks) and acid from the conversion of sugar (8d). If they drop in number you start producing the wrong short chain fatty acids (SCFA), one of the first signs of imbalance in the gut flora (shown in ground breaking research by REBrain Clinic’s founder, Marianne Sandberg (8c)). Your gut controls your immune system, so it is not good when it isn’t working properly.
Reversing this imbalance is what we can help you with at our Brain health Consultations.
