Gut Health

Gut health can be affected by our mental health. The gut and brain are connected via the vagus nerve, and the gut has its own nervous system, called the enteric nervous system, which is sometimes referred to as the "second brain." In fact, the gut contains more serotonin receptors than the brain. The gut microbiome plays a crucial role in modulating the gut-brain axis. Poor gut health might result in feelings of anxiousness, sadness, brain fog... more

Checking Weight

Weight Gain

Weight gain can be more complex than just simply eating too many of your favorite foods for too long. Weight that seems impossible to lose is often times alerting you to deeper underlying mental health issues, such as unresolved adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) or trauma, which might create feelings of depression, stress, and/or anxiety.

Sleep Disturbances

Most everyone suffers from a sleepless night or two, but consistent sleep disturbances are signs that there might be something else going on. The saying goes that what you do during the day affects how well you sleep at night. But also what occurred previously in your life affects how well you sleep.
