Have you heard of the gut/brain connection? It basically means that your gut health affects your brain health and vice versa.

I have seen this first hand in clinic, where patients come in seeking help for their digestive symptoms (IBS, leaky gut, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation, bloating, heartburn, nausea, the list goes on) and it turns out that they are also dealing with significant anxiety and/or depression.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the bidirectional nature of the gut/brain connection, and suggest ways and means of managing both anxiety and depression and, simultaneously, healing the gut.
