We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gut”the decision we made because it œfelt right; the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when were 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 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.
