The Mind Gut Connection

Cost: $25

Join us for Wellness at the Peace Cellar.
We are excited to have Yvonne Matthews, BS, NC share her vast nutritional knowledge with us.  

Have you ever had that “gut feeling” or “butterflies” in your stomach when you get nervous? Most of us have these experiences and don’t make the literal connection that our stomach and brains are literally communicating back and forth all the time!  Have you ever had that “gut feeling” or “butterflies” in your stomach when you get nervous? Most of us have these experiences and don’t make the literal connection that our stomach and brains are literally communicating back and forth all the time!

Yvonne will share with us new studies being done in this area, and how exactly do the gut and brain talk to each other, including the role of the microbiome, and what happens when things aren’t working so well, which can mean anxiety, depression, weight gain, food sensitivities, fatigue and more! She will also give us her top tips on how diet and lifestyle can help our mind-gut connection work to keep us health, energetic and live a happier life!
