Did you know that your metabolic health & mental health is connected? Your depression & anxiety are deep rooted in your body. So many things contribute to your metabolic health – for example – your food choices, metabolism, your gut microbiome & overall gut health, level of toxins & detoxification, sleep, exercise, stress management, emotional well-being, age & your genetic factors.
When environmental factors (epigenetic factors) pile up & unresolved, it’s a great opportunity to set a fire to the already loaded gun with other genetic factors! The good news is that you can change this by changing the environmental factors. You do have the control.
It has been well studied that most of the mental health issues arise from inflammation & oxidative stress in the body. Your brain and gut are in constant communication with each other. Most of your neurotransmitters are made as a result of many process that involves your gut bacteria and detoxification.
