The Gut Feeling – Need to Digest Something New? The mind-body connection has never been more important with new neurological research now linking our mental health with our intestinal microbe.
It is well accepted that what we eat can affect how we feel. Often when people are experiencing difficulties in life they neglect their own nourishment which in turn can increase their emotional vulnerability.
Mental Health Ireland have teamed up with Midwest Radio to encourage understanding and awareness around mental health topics and self care strategies. I was asked, as a member of the Family Centre team, to share some of my knowledge on “How food affects your mood”. These podcasts are aired on Monday mornings at 10.15 am, with my recording being shared on May 21st, 2018. I hope you gain some inspiration to review your food selection and improve your mental health from what you hear. To hear the previous Mental Health podcasts click here.
