Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome, a practical guide in the tradition of The Second Brain, and The Good Gut that conclusively demonstrates the inextricable, biological link between mind and the digestive system.
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 we get when we’re stressed out. While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, Western medicine has by and large failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut, and more recently, the gut microbiota—the microorganisms that live inside our digestive tract—communicate with one another. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, professor of medicine and executive director of the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress, offers a revolutionary and provocative look at this developing science, teaching us how to harness the power of the mind-gut connection to take charge of our health and listen to the innate wisdom of our bodies.
The Mind-Gut Connection describes:
· Why consuming a predominantly plant-based diet is key for gut and brain health
· The importance of early childhood in gut-brain development, and what parents can do to help their children thrive
The role of excessive stress and anxiety in GI ailments and cognitive disorders
How to “listen to your gut” and pay attention to the signals your body is sending you
· and much more.

“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)

Dalla quarta di copertina
Chances are, at some point in your life you’ve noticed the connection between your brain and your gut. If you’ve ever felt queasy as you walked into an uncomfortable situation or based a life decision based on a “gut feeling,” then you know that sometimes our bodies react faster than our minds. Most of us have also experienced the same phenomenon in reverse, where our mental state has affected our digestive system—like the butterflies in our stomach before an important meeting or a first date. But while the dialogue between the mind and the gut has been recognized for centuries, scientists today are just starting to understand how powerful that connection is.
In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, executive director of the UCLA Oppenheimer Center for the Neurobiology of Stress, offers a cutting-edge view into this developing science, showing us the full impact of how the brain, gut, and microbiome—the community of microorganisms that live inside the digestive tract—communicate. As Dr. Mayer explains, when this communication channel is out of whack, major health problems can crop up, including food sensitivities and allergies, digestive disorders, obesity, depression, anxiety, and fatigue.The Mind-Gut Connection teaches us how, with a few simple changes to our diet and lifestyle, we can enjoy a happier mindset, enhanced immunity, a decreased risk of developing neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and even lose weight. With a simple, practical regimen drawn from the latest research, Dr. Mayer shows us that paying attention to the mind-gut balance is the key to unlocking vibrant health.

• 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.
