Season 2, Episode 20: Understanding the Gut-Brain Connection with Dr. Natasha Macleay
We’ve all heard the phrase “listen to your gut” and the notion of a “gut feeling.”
This is because our gut, often referred to as our “second brain,” communicates directly with our central nervous system, influencing our emotions, moods, and cognitive function.
In this week’s episode, Dr. Natasha Macleay, a naturopathic doctor at Tulsi Wellness Center in Del Mar, shares her wealth of knowledge and the latest research on the intricate connection of the gut-brain axis and its profound impact on our mental health.
We also cover how:
- the trillions of gut microbiota play a pivotal role in regulating neurotransmitters and influencing our mental state
- the benefits of curcumin to treat depressive symptoms
- practical tips to help regulate stress + mood
Whether you’re interested in the science behind the gut brain connection or seeking to improve your mental health, tune in to expand your understanding of your gut and mind.
