Unlocking the Gut Brain Connection; Heal your Brain by Healing your Gut

by

Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

Have you noticed that there’s an epidemic of brain related problems in our world today? I’m sure you know at least one, perhaps several people who are suffering from  problems such as depression, anxiety, brain fog, irritability, difficulty focusing, or hyperactivity.   I see people with these problems in my office all the time.

What you may not realize is that problems in your head are connected to problems in your gut.  There’s a condition called leaky gut that results from low nutrient density foods, toxins in your air, water and food and eating in a stressful envronment. It’s likely that at least one of these stressors is a part of your world on a regular basis.

My newsletter last week went into details about leaky gut.   You can get access to last weeks newsletter at http://www.drritamarie.com/newsletter.   The Recording of the Leaky Gut and Candida Teleseminar that Tera Warner and I did last week was recorded:  http://www.drritamarie.com/url/DetoxTelecourse

So what does leaky gut have to do with brain chemistry imbalances?  A lot!  Unlocking the gut-brain connection has been shown improve brain fog, ADHD, autism, depression and many more problems that plague so many today. Some foods cause antibodies to form that attack brain cells.  The passage of toxins into the blood stream through a leaky gut creates a whole host of problems.  Blood sugar and neurotransmitter  imbalances due to malabsorption of nutrients can lead to brain fog, depression and lack of focus.

Want to learn more about the gut brain connection and how to  control your brain through what you eat, how you eat and the health of your digestion?

On November 10, I’ll be explaining lots more in a FREE teleseminar.

This teleseminar will explain:
* What the gut-brain connection is and how ADD, autism and bipolar disorder can be influenced by what you eat.
* How and why what you eat affects the way you think, feel and behave.
* How to recognize when your mood swings and irritability are being triggered by food.
* Why conditions like depression, bipolar disorder, insomnia, ADD, brain-fog, anxiety, irritability and other conditions may all be connected to nutritional deficiencies, toxins and processed foods, NOT genetic conditions as some would have you believe!
* Can’t focus? You might simply be missing one thing in your diet. Find out what that is!
* Finally understand how stress inhibits your “wizard” brain and puts your “lizard” brain in control
* How long does it take to overcome these conditions and eliminate these toxins from the body?
* The exact mechanism that causes you to feel sluggish or have trouble concentrating and how to handle it.
* What the liver does with excess toxins when it is overloaded how this affects your brain!

Please join Tera Warner and I for this Free teleseminar.
