The Mental-Gut Health Connection

Join Just BE Kitchen and Dr. Jawad Majeed, ND for a free event all about the connection between gut and mental health.

Jawad Majeed, ND (also known as Dr. Jay), is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor practicing Functional Medicine at PrimeHealth in Denver, CO (https://primehealthdenver.com/phd_team/jawad-majeed-nd/).

In this presentation, we will explore the link between the digestive tract and mental health. Researchers are now calling the gut, “the second brain”, because of its enormous impact on our central nervous system and how we feel throughout the day. Our inability to handle daily stressors, fatigue, depression, and anxiety have all been linked to changes in the microbiome. Did you know that 70% of our serotonin is produced in our digestive tract?! An introduction to Nutritional Psychiatry will examine how important specific foods are for the production of essential neurotransmitters. Furthermore, we will also explore the concept of “leaky gut syndrome”, and how we can reduce inflammation to feel vital throughout the day!

We will e-see you there!
