The role of the gastrointestinal system on brain health is not a new concept. In fact studies as far back as the turn of the 20th century explored this connection but were unfortunately put aside. Nevertheless, over the past two decades the notion of the gut brain connection has found resurgence. Unique discoveries reveal that the health of the human microbiome or digestive flora can impact mood, behavior and brain function. If you have noticed that when your digestion is off you feel more anxious or sad? Or that when your mood is low, your bowels get thrown out of whack? You are not wrong. Sometimes referred to as the “Second Brain”, your gut has a mind of its own.

Join Functional Nurse Practitioner Suzanne Tershak Tither, of Rose Wellness Center in Oakton, VA to learn more about how the gut and the brain are connected. She will shed light on this fascinating topic and offer tips on maximizing your gut brain connection.
