I just love when scientific studies confirm what real food advocates and alternative doctors, such as Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride of the GAPS diet, have been stating for years. In this case it is the research on gut microbe activity and how it affects the human being, specifically the brain and mood. Dr. Campbell McBride has documented much of the recent findings in her book, "The Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Natural Treatment For: Autism, ADD, ADHD, Depression, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Schizophrenia".
Kristen at Food Renegade has documented the new research data on her blog and I've linked to it below. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
And remember, next time you are in a particularly good mood, thank your gut microbes!
Happy Trails (and microbes),
