The Mind-Gut Connection took its place in the most crucial section of the books I read about health and nutrition. Do we know how vital our intestines are? There may not be much emphasis on this, but we need to do our best to look after our gut. This book tells us what we should do and what we should eat.
The Mind-Gut Connection describes the connection between these two essential organs in a simple language. If we consider the contractions that occur in our stomach when we are scared or excited, we will see that we need to consider these two organs a little more. After reading the book, you will understand better how to look after it by avoiding stress and eating healthy for these organs. In the meantime, consume plenty of vegetables, avoid processed foods, eat fermented foods and make a habit of meditation.

Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut. And more recently, the microbiome-the microorganisms that live inside us-communicate with one another. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, executive director of the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress, offers a revolutionary look at this developing science.
