The brain is a fascinating organ and current research continues to show the impact and effect we can have on our brains, through:  thoughts, behaviors, diet and excercise.

There are so many research studies, books and articles that show how the brain can adapt, change and create new pathways to healthier functioning. In general this term is referred to as neuroplasticity.

The psychological and medical world are flooded with research on the brain/gut connection. At the simplest of descriptions this is how the bacteria in our stomach and intestinal tracts effects brain functioning. Research shows how the altering the bacteria in our gut can alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress and neurodevelopmental disorders.

If you are interested in reading further you can look up neuroplasticity and/or the brain/gut connection and you will find many options to choose from.
