The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health (English Edition) Formato Kindle
|Nuovo a partire da||Usato da|
Cutting-edge neuroscience combines with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome to inform this practical guide that proves once and for all the inextricable, biological link between mind and body.
We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gut—the decision we made because it “felt right;” the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when we’re stressed out. While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, including Aryuvedic and Chinese medicine, Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut, and more recently, the microbiome—the microorganisms that live inside us—communicate with one another. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, Executive Director of the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress, offers a revolutionary look at this developing science, teaching us how to harness the power of the mind-gut connection to take charge of our health.
The Mind-Gut Connection, shows how to keep the communication brain-gut communication clear and balanced to:
• Heal the gut by focusing on a plant-based diet
• Balance the microbiome by consuming fermented foods and probiotics, fasting, and cutting out sugar and processed foods
• Promote weight loss by detoxifying and creating a healthy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption
• Boost immunity and prevent the onset of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s
• Generate a happier mindset and reduce fatigue, moodiness, anxiety, and depression
• Prevent and heal GI disorders such as leaky gut syndrome; food sensitivities and allergies; and IBS; as well as digestive discomfort such as heartburn and bloating
• And much more.
Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.
“Drawing on his vast experience as a practicing gastroenterologist, Dr. Mayer writes about the connections that our brains have with our guts, especially with the microbes that make the gut their home. Describing a rapidly advancing realm of knowledge, this thoughtful guide provides practical advice to improve health.” -- Martin J. Blaser, MD, author of Missing Microbes
“Dr. Emeran Mayer elucidates the intricate biochemical dialogue that occurs between the brain, digestive tract, and trillions of bacteria residing in the gut. He dubs this form of communication ‘microbe-speak’ and speculates on its implications for social behavior, decision making, emotional wellbeing, and maybe mental health.” -- Booklist
“After a long period of neglect the enteric nervous system has been recognized as the ‘second brain’. Dr. Emeran Mayer, a true expert of this topic, has now written the best lay-public guide yet to this spectacular part of ourselves. Recommended reading.” -- Antonio Demasio, author of Descartes’ Error, The Feeling of What Happens, and The Self Comes to Mind
“I have known Emeran Mayer for years and have learned to pay attention to what he says and writes. The Mind-Gut Connection is a delight. Both scholarly and fun to read, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about how the mind and gut communicate.” -- Michael D. Gershon, MD, author of The Second Brain
“Microbiome research is revolutionizing our understanding of the human body and the brain. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer provides authoritative insight into this rapidly expanding field. Synthesizing recent research with patient stories and personal anecdotes, he offers practical, evidence-based recommendations to keep the dialogue between the brain, the gut, and its microbes flowing smoothly.” -- Rob Knight, PhD, author of Follow Your Gut and director of the Center for Microbiome Innovation, UC San Diego
“The Mind-Gut Connection is a revolutionary new holistic view of what keeps us healthy, ranging from the food choices we make to the ways we can train our mind, with the ultimate goal of attaining optimal health. ” -- Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD, Clincal Professor of Medicine and Professor of Public Health, University of California School of Medicine (UCSF)

Emeran Mayer, MD, has studied brain-body interactions for the last forty years. He is the executive director of the G. Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience and the codirector of the Digestive Diseases Research Center at the University of California at Los Angeles. His research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health for the past twenty-five years, and he is considered a pioneer and world leader in the area of brain-gut microbiome interactions.--Questo testo si riferisce a un'edizione fuori stampa o non disponibile di questo titolo.

• They make our gut microbiome.
• The quality of our microbiome depends on various factors like our mothers microbiome, the food we eat, the environment we live in and our state of mind.
• Our state of mind plays a very very important role in determining our gut health. The emotions in our brain play out in the theater of our gut. Fear and sudden stress leads to diarrhoea many a times !
• And, the gut health also has a significant impact on our moods, emotions and our mental health. Why is autism and parkinsons sky rocketing these days ?
By eating organic, by eating 80% plant based food and less animal meat, by avoiding all refined foods including white sugar and white salt, by saying NO to all processed food, by avoiding anti biotics as much as possible and by depending on healing properties of plants, by maintaining a healthy lifestyle (that includes daily exercise), by fasting once a month, and by avoiding stress through the practice of mindful meditation, we can ensure a great gut health as well as emotional wellness. Hippocrates said ALL DISEASES START IN THE GUT. And, research now shows (the indian and Buddhist monks said it a thousand years ago) the mind plays a huge role in affecting the gut. Fear, anger, jealousy, hatred and many other negative emotions stored in our brain for a long time manifest as diseases later. Oblivious to the root cause, we keep treating the organ and suffer endlessly.
Add life to your years and years to your life.
Live well !
Thank you Dr.Mayer, brilliant work indeed : )
This book felt padded and unfocused to me, as it contains a lot of anecdotal stories about the author's patients and experiences, and is somewhat meandering and disjointed, which dilutes the information that is included, and it has odd shifts in tone, at one point being very (to the point of being depressing if you had shoddy parents) doom and gloom about the effects of the choices our caregivers make when we are children that are outside of our control, but then later on, almost excusing parents who are not making the best choices for their children, which considering the amount of influence caregivers have over the children is their care is irresponsible and came across as pandering to a group that needs to take responsibility.
Usable advice is scant, and overall I found it an unsatisfying and shallow read, but that might be because I'm already somewhat familiar with the subject. I bought it for £7.99, and it is definitely overpriced.
