“Any emotions that you experience chronically or frequently have a mirror image in your body.”

Today's guest is Dr. Emeran Mayer. He's one of the world’s foremost experts on the gut brain connection and for over the past 40 years, his research and published work has offered groundbreaking evidence of the critical connection between the brain and the gut. He is the executive director of the G. Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience and the co-director of the Digestive Diseases Research Center at the University of California at Los Angeles. Our conversation was so powerful that I wanted to split into 2 parts! So look out for part 2 coming later this week!

In this episode Lewis and Dr. Emeran Mayer discuss the biggest triggers for inflammation, the foods we should eat & avoid to improve our gut health, why we’ve become so addicted to sugar & the effects it has on our body, whether our brain or gut health affects our body more, how our digestive system functions, and so much more!
