Do you crave sweets, carbs, or lust after other junk food? Do you wake up many nights at 2:00 or 3:00? Are you plagued by anxiety or depression? Have your tried going gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free with little relief? If so, you belong to a club with expanding membership no one wants to join.

People have talked for years about the effects of good bacteria in our guts versus bad, but scientific research now shows that some bad bacteria in our gut can affect our brain function. But who knew the degree to which our poor moods and unhealthy food desires can be caused by tiny microbes living inside us.

According to researcher Athena Aktipis, Ph.D., currently with the Arizona State University Department of Psychology, “Microbes have the capacity to manipulate behavior and mood through altering the neural signals in the vagus nerve, changing taste receptors, producing toxins to make us feel bad, and releasing chemical rewards to make us feel good.”

So there they sit in their little “control central” causing unhealthy cravings and emotional distress.

Decades of use of antibiotics that kill off good gut bacteria as well as the culprits that cause disease has resulted in a gut climate for many that has progressively let troublesome microbes have more influence in our bodies than ever before.

If you’re one of those individuals that rarely felt anxious or depressed until you started having problems with your gut, or you started craving a range of unhealthy foods, especially at night, then homeopathy can be a healing vehicle for you to reestablish a healthy gut flora without throwing other systems out of balance in the process..

Give me a call if you’d like to explore how homeopathy can be a springboard to your renewed health!
