Mary Sheila Gonnella, NC of Occidental Nutrition, talked to us about Food, Mood and Fermentation. The food we eat (or don’t eat) plays a significant role in our gut health, microbiome, mood, cravings, and metabolic balance. We learned about the interconnectedness of our second brain (our gastrointestinal tract) and how ferments can play a role in balancing metabolism and brain chemistry, including our mood, sleep, and cravings.
