Quote of the Show:

 “Our microbiome is going to affect our mental overwhelm.” – Amanda Hinman


    • Mental overwhelm is a pervasive problem in our culture and can be a chronic and consistent issue for many people.
    • The microbiome, a collection of microscopic organisms that line the gut, is responsible for producing hormones and neurotransmitters that are necessary for the body to function optimally.
    • To improve gut health and balance neurotransmitters, it’s important to get adequate sleep, reduce stress, and eat a well-balanced diet.
    • Chronic, never-ending loop of thoughts, rumination, worry, or considerations may indicate an imbalance of glutamate neurotransmitter and not enough GABA neurotransmitter.
    • Balancing the brain-gut connection can lead to improved creativity, solutions, understanding, empathy, compassion, and patience.
    • Self-care is essential to improve mental overwhelm and gut health, and listeners should prioritize their health and wellbeing by being kind to themselves and taking time to focus on their needs.
