Gut feelings: the future of psychiatry may be inside your stomach

Gut feelings: the future of psychiatry may be inside your stomach | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Her parents were running out of hope. Their teenage daughter, Mary, had been diagnosed with a severe case of obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), as well as ADHD. They had dragged her to clinics...

 

The provocative idea — that psychiatric woes can be solved by targeting the digestive system — is increasingly reinforced by cutting-edge science. For decades, researchers have known of the connection between the brain and the gut. Anxiety often causes nausea and diarrhea, and depression can change appetite. The connection may have been established, but scientists thought communication was one way: it traveled from the brain to the gut, and not the other way around.

 

But now, a new understanding of the trillions of microbes living in our guts reveals that this communication process is more like a multi-lane superhighway than a one-way street. By showing that changing bacteria in the gut can change behavior, this new research might one day transform the way we understand — and treat — a variety of mental health disorders.

Do carbohydrates make you fat?

Do carbohydrates make you fat? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
“To learn about health, one must study health”

- Albert Einstein

 

There are few topics in the health and fitness community that are as controversial as carbohydrate consumption. While low-carb dieters sometimes claim that a high carbohydrate intake drives insulin resistance, weight gain and obesity, dietitians and proponents of low-fat diets on the other end of the spectrum often say that everyone should get 40-60% of their daily energy from carbohydrate to fuel the body. In this post I’ll take a step back and look at macronutrient intake in an evolutionary perspective and then discuss carbohydrate consumption in the context of overweight and obesity…

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

Whether or not carbohydtrates can "make" you fat depends on the carbohydrate, lifestyle, genes, and a lot of other things that the article goes into.

Do you feel like you're standing on ice, or make your partner shriek when your toes come in contact with their oh-so-warm legs? This is for you.

 

There are a few reasons your feet could be chilly, the first being the most obvious: Are you wearing socks? Maybe your feet are cold because you’re not covering them and are walking on a cold floor. OK then — now that we’ve ruled out the most obvious reason your feet may be chilly, let’s explore some more, less obvious explanations:
