The Gut Brain Connection is a video that highlights how serious gut conditions are as they are directly correlated with poor brain health.
The gut brain axis is impacted in so many people. Most individuals are unaware that a gut problem exists simply because they don’t feel pain. It’s important to understand that the mucosal lining in the gut and the brain do not have pain fibers. Therefore, you have to look for gut and brain symptoms to understand if you have this problem. Keep reading to learn more about the gut brain connection,
If you have gut symptoms that include gas, bloating, constant diarrhea, distention, food sensitivities, and pain after meals, then there is a good chance that you have an issue with the gut brain axis; meaning your gut and brain are on fire.
The gut brain connection should not be overlooked. So many people suffer from brain disorders as a result of having a gut condition.
Your gut and brain health rely on each other, as they are so closely connected.
Let’s discuss the gut microbiome. The gut microbiome determines how the brain is functioning, how we feel, how our organs function, and whether we develop brain or psychiatric disorders.
When we look at the gut microbiome and brain, people have found serious neurological conditions start to reverse themselves when the gut microbiome is balanced and functioning as it should. It impacts the body so much so that there are clinical experiences where women are not able to conceive and then when they get their gut health straightened out, they conceive. The gut brain connection is truly incredible.
In the end, it is so important to make sure you are always working to improve your gut health and brain health so that you can have whole body health. It is also important to make sure you’re focusing on the neurobiotics that specifically influence brain health. Knowing the gut brain connection is very important!

[Video Transcription] The Gut Brain Connection | Poor Gut Health Destroys Your Brain
In this video, you’ll discover how your gut health impacts your brain health and especially the gut brain connection.
Hi, ladies and gentlemen, I’m Dr. Zyrowski and welcome back to the channel. If you’re new to the channel, it’s a pleasure to have you here – be sure to subscribe, hit that bell notification, and join our notification community so I can help you excel your health and your life.
In this video, we’re talking about the Gut Brain Connection. This is an incredibly important topic and I’ve been doing a lot of videos covering different gut conditions. What I want to do, in this video, is impress upon you the importance of having good gut health in order to have good brain health because your gut health impacts your brain.
In someone who is suffering from gastrointestinal problems and symptoms, and they’re also finding that they have different problems with focus and memory and cognitive issues – then essentially, what happens is, there is something called the Gut Brain Axis that is affected. And when the Gut Brain Axis is affected, it can not only cause psychiatric disorders, psychological disorders – it can also affect your mood, it can affect your memory, it can affect the brain energy that you have on a daily basis. Let’s go ahead and talk about some of the different symptoms that would indicate that you have this issue going on. And then from there, we’ll just drive this point home, talking about some of the different brain conditions that actually come out of it. Yes, there is such thing as gut brain connection.
First of all, let’s talk about some of the symptoms. If you’re someone who has discomfort after meals – every time you eat a meal, you’re getting a lot of pain and discomfort, then there’s a good chance that there’s an issue with your overall gut health affecting your brain health.
The same thing goes for bloating and gas – every time you eat a meal you’re bloated, you’re gassy. Well, the same thing here.
And also, distention after meals – let’s say you’re a skinny person. You eat a meal and you just have so much distention that you look like you’re fat when you’re really not. And so, if we have distention every time we’re eating a meal, then once again, we need to really focus in on the problem, and the real problem.
Food digestion issues – if you’re someone who eats, let’s say protein, and the next thing you know, you’re finding that after you eat that protein, it’s just sitting in your gut like a rock. You’re eating a salad and it’s just sitting in your gut. You just feel like it’s not digesting properly. Then once again, we need to focus in, here.
And then, food intolerances – a lot of people have a couple foods that they are intolerant to. Let’s say somebody is intolerant to dairy. Sometimes, people have a couple of them. But if you’re finding that you’re having a whole string of intolerances, then there’s a good chance, once again, that there is a gut condition that you are facing and what we have to really be aware of is if the Gut is on Fire then the Brain is on Fire. That is such an important concept that needs to be driven home in this video, because many people have gut issues that are affecting their brain.
One of the things that is important, when it comes to gut brain connection, is that the mucosal lining in the gut typically, in most people, is inflamed and just wreaking havoc, does not have pain fibers in it. You know what else doesn’t have pain fibers in it? Is your brain. It’s not like you’re someone who gets Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s or one of these different conditions – start to have all kinds of pain in their brain, because there’s no pain fibers there. A lot of these things can be going on in your body, unknowingly. So that’s why it’s so important to make sure that we are actually checking on this problem here by looking at some of these different digestive symptoms that arise.
Let’s go ahead and talk about the Enteric Nervous System. That is essentially the nervous system that runs your gut. Now the Enteric Nervous System has over 200 million neurons in it. It’s essentially the same size as a dog brain. There’s about 200 million neurons in a dog brain – you have about 200 million neurons in your gut. Now that Enteric Nervous System is sending signals from the brain and to the brain, and it is also sending signals to every different organ in the thoracic cavity. We have to make sure that we’re having good gut health so that it’s sending good signals to the brain, and good signals to all the different organ systems.
It also has thousands of species of bacteria in it. The thousands of species of bacteria are responsible for so many different issues, that can come up psychologically. We look at all these different psychiatric disorders. Essentially, what has been found, is that when they go and they start actually healing the gut and they make sure they are getting proper strains of bacteria within the gut, then they actually start to reverse themselves. So, thousands of species of bacteria, and we have to make sure that we also don’t have the bad bacteria. We don’t want to have the pathogens. We don’t want parasites in our gut. So, thousands of species and then three million genes. Very important as well, because what we’re find is your gut health will determine your future health, your neurological well-being, your brain health. Very important.
Now when we look at these different gut conditions, many times when we find the people who have conditions, they’re correlated with brain conditions. As a matter of fact, Lancet did a study, and what they essentially found is that 42% of the people who had Crohn’s disease also had lesions on the brain. 46% of the people who have colitis, have lesions on the brain as well. So you can see how it’s closely connected there.
Now, we look at problems like Stress, Anxiety, Parkinson’s, Bi-Polar Disorder, Memory issues, Focus issues, Schizophrenia, Autism, all these different disorders are being linked to gut conditions. Whether it’s a deficiency in a certain strain of bacteria, or it’s a bunch of inflammation, or there’s pathogens or parasites in the gut. When we go in and start actually removing some of these issues, we’re finding that these problems are starting to reverse themselves, clinically. This is very, very important.
Once again, this is really to outline the importance of gut health. Because, a lot of people see the different gut health videos I’m doing and they’re thinking, “I have some of those symptoms, but who cares.” Well no, actually, these different gut health issues are going to determine your neurological health, and your overall well-being of your entire body. We have to make sure we take it seriously.
There are something called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are like chemicals in the brain, the hormones in the brain, essentially. Now the neurotransmitter serotonin is not only signaled by the gut for the brain to actually release it, but also, essentially, the neurotransmitter serotonin is produced by the gut as well. When we actually look at this, this is very important because people who have serotonin deficiencies have a lot of mood disorders. They have depression, they have anxiety, they have a lot more stress, they have a lot more anger and rage, they lose interest in a lot of their daily friendships that they have. Or maybe, even their daily things that they enjoy, and their daily activities. When we look at how many people today have a problem with anger, have a problem with anxiety, and stress – it’s so many people. That’s why it’s so important that we have good gut health so that our neurotransmitter health is good and our brain is balanced.
The next and last thing here is Structural and Functional Development. Now this is really important because when we look at all these different kids who are having issues – even young adults that are having issues focusing and having different brain problems. Essentially, what has been found is the same people who have different structural and functional issues with their brain, are these same children, these same young adults, even these same adults that actually have gut conditions. We have to take all this very seriously and make sure that we know that the gut is very much connected to how our brain is working and that we work to improve gut health. You’re going to see a ton more information coming out on this in the future – not just by me, simply because this is probably going to be the new next big health trend. The research is really telling us how important our gut health is to our overall brain health, our neurological health and daily bodily well-being.
What I’ll do is actually put a link in the description to all the different videos that I have been doing, covering these different gut conditions. I’ll put some over here for you to check out as well:
