How Stress Is Sabotaging Your Beautiful Microbiome
We’re sharing the best moments from #revitalize2016, our premier event bringing together wellness leaders and inspiring people. Want to get even more of the action? Check out the full talks here.
According to Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain and a board-certified neurologist, stress causes production of cortisol, a hormone that kills off brain cells in the hippocampus. The connection between brain and gut is more researched than ever before. Learn exactly how brain health and gut health are affected by cortisol in this short video with mindbodygreen CEO and Founder Jason Wachob.
Dr. Perlmutter is a trusted source when it comes to gut health. While he's well-known for his best-selling book Grain Brain, his most recent book, Brain Maker, dives deeper into the role of the microbiome in determining our destiny. With degenerative and cognitive-based diseases on the rise from autism and ADHD in children to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's in adults, uncovering the nuances in the relationship between the brain and the gut has never been more important. In line with his mission to approach neurological disorders with preventive medicine, Dr. Perlmutter has developed practical plans that help the inflammatory response in the body in his books.
