In the fifth edition of our 12-part series, The Celiac Society of India, in partnership with KnoWewell, J Mitra, and Prana, bring you international experts to throw light on how mental health issues are connected with the gut and how diet can be the cornerstone in treating them.

  • Mood disorders
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Schizophrenia
  • ADHD
  • OCD 

In this session, we attempt to get a better understanding of the brain-gut axis and the fact that the gut has so much to do with what happens in the brain.

Key takeaways include:

  • If my mind is not working the way I want it to, is there chronic inflammatory going on?
  • Is there a food-mood connection?
  • Can one reduce the need for medicines through the right food?

The vast majority of diseases of the last few hundred years have been reduced or eliminated with tremendous progress in medical research. In their place however, other health hurdles have exploded, like autoimmune disease, metabolic disease, blood sugar issues, food sensitivities, fatigue, brain fog – and more. Add to this a long list of advanced lifestyle diseases, like obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, etc.

To address lifestyle diseases requires a different type of thinking. Arresting the progression of lifestyle diseases and reversing many health hurdles and symptoms is an inside job – healing from the inside out, one cell at a time. We are here at theDr.com and are here to help.
