New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Is Your Anxiety, Stress and Worry Occurring From Missing Gut Microbes – OKAY?
so I wanted to touch on the huge relationship between your digestive system your gut your friendly bacteria and your mood okay specifically anxiety stress and worry and even the effect on cognitive functions like lack of focus or concentration if you don’t have all the microflora the friendly bacteria in your digestive system specifically Bifidobacterium and lactobacillus it can potentially – all sorts of problems with your brain chemistry now if you experience a loss of a loved one it’s normal to have depression if you’re being chased by a tiger it is normal to have anxiety and stress but what I want to touch on is what if there’s actually no reason to have depression anxiety stress or worry I want to touch on the actual physical causation of that because your microbes actually make proteins and I’m talking about neurotransmitters neurotransmitters are hormone like proteins that travel through the you nervous system like gaba for example if you’re lacking gaba but you can be depressed and then you have serotonin in its relationship to your mood do you realize that 90% of all the serotonin in your body is made by your gut only 10% is made by your brain and there’s other neurotransmitters that are made by your gut as well so if you do not have the right ratios of microbes if you don’t have enough microbes that can have huge effect over your body’s ability to make neurotransmitters then you have something called the enteric nervous system now I’ve done other seminars where I talked about the flight or fight mechanism it’s called the sympathetic nervous system and then you have the rest and digest system which is the parasympathetic there’s actually a third system of the autonomic nervous system that is called the enteric which is really the connection between all the nerves in your gut and the direct connection to your brain so what is going on down here can definitely affect up here so how do we lose our micro flora well mainly through antibiotics now you might say well I don’t take any buttocks I probably had antibiotics as a child but I haven’t had them for years but guess what over 80% of antibiotics are sold as a growth factor for farm animals okay so you’re basically giving antibiotics indirectly if you’re consuming commercial meats and that’s why I always recommend consuming organic I will do a separate video on this but organic means without the use of pesticides insecticides and GMO foods like glyphosate as well as without antibiotics so I recommend doing that but it’s sometimes it’s hard if you’re going to going out to dinner because you don’t really know what you’re getting artificial sweeteners greatly affect the microflora and your gut as well so if you’re on a diet soda for a long period of time that could affect your microflora and lastly the GMO foods which we’re all affected by glyphosate as an herbicide greatly disrupts our micro flora and it can affect our ability to make proteins so there’s a couple things you can do that are very simple to improve these three symptoms right here take a probiotic take a good one that includes these two as well get a probiotic and a prebiotic together as in sauerkraut kimchi pickles fermented vegetables when I’m at the farmers market I always get a fermented vegetable and I consume some fermented vegetables on a daily basis that way you can kill two birds with one stone because the prebiotic is the fiber and then it has a probiotic as well and that can help you and avoid the things that destroy your micro flora these right here these right here these right here and by the way long-term use of laxatives can really throw off your micro flora I’ll put a couple links down below if you have constipation so anything that affects diarrhea medication laxatives or even things that you’re eating that are like food allergies that are creating that problem will throw this off and effect these right here all right guys thanks for watching hey before you go would you mind putting a comment down below to tell me what you think about this video

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the huge relationship between the digestive system, gut, and mood (anxiety, stress, and worry). If you don’t have the microflora (friendly bacteria) in the digestive system, it can potentially cause all sorts of problem in the brain. Microbes make hormone-like proteins (neurotransmitters) that travel through the nervous system like GABA and Serotonin. If you don’t enough microbes, it will have a huge effect on your body’s ability to make neurotransmitters.
• Sympathetic Nervous System (Fight or Flight)
• Parasympathetic nervous system (Rest and Digest)
• Enteric Nervous System – All the connection between all the nerves in the gut with the direct connection to the brain.
Causes to Loose Microflora
2. Artificial Sweeteners
4. Long term use of Laxatives
Ways to Improve Mood Problems
• Probiotic and Prebiotic – Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Pickles, Fermented Vegetables
• Avoid the things that could destroy the microflora
