Previously overlooked, the gut microbiota now plays a pivotal role in mental and physical health. The vagus nerve goes from the abdomen to the brain. It is a critical way that microbes in the gut can affect thinking and behavior. Therefore, it is imperative to rule out medical problems (such as thyroid issues, vitamin B12 deficiency and other nutritional deficiencies) before diagnosing a mood illness.
Sometimes, all that is needed to treat what is thought to be a mood disorder is a few changes in diet and lifestyle. At Earth’s Edge Wellness, we offer nutritional coaching if the cause of your mental disturbance is health-related. We also provide standard programming or individualized retreats to resolve mood disorders. Do not hesitate to contact us for holistic therapy to get your life back on track.
