The Food and Mood Connection

Thursday, August 22nd | 6pm | Our Lady of the Snows | Free

For many years, we’ve been told that our mood disorders are caused by chemical imbalances in our brain, that we may be lacking certain neurotransmitters. On the surface, this makes a lot of sense, but is it true? Currently there is another line of thinking, with quite a lot of science to back it up, saying our current understanding may be wrong. What they’re finding is that what may be causing our mood issues is poor gut health and inflammation. Our brain is connected to our gut via the vagus nerve. What is happening in our gut has a direct link with what is going on in our brain.

Join Ginger Martinson and Vonni Tomlinson, certified Nutritional Therapists, to learn more about how this knowledge greatly impacted both of their lives. Learn what habits you have that may be harming your gut, and therefore your brain. You will walk away with new knowledge and practical steps you can take immediately to begin healing your gut and lower inflammation to start you on a road to better brain health and an improved mood.
