Two Brains? The Answer to Treating My Depression May Be in my Gut
“Our two brains ‘talk’ to each other, so therapies that help one may help the other. In a way, gastroenterologists (doctors who specialize in digestive conditions) are like counselors looking for ways to soothe the second brain.” – Jay Pasricha, M.D., director of the Johns Hopkins Center Neurogastroenterology, explaining the gut-brain connection.
All of us feel sad or down sometimes. These feelings may be the result of life circumstances, from a lost job to the death of a close family member or friend. Other times we are not clear why we feel sad—we may have a genetic vulnerability to depression, faulty mood regulation by the brain, or even a chemical reaction to specific medications.
For some of us, the feelings of sadness lift quickly. Sometimes we have a “perfect storm” of several factors coming together to lead us into a major depression.

In this series, we will explore small changes you can make to help you feel better.
1. Maintain a healthy weight — avoiding obesity is easier than losing weight. Most diets fail because you focus on depriving yourself. Try making small but doable choices for one day. For instance, choose to drink one bottle of water in place of one of your usual soft drinks. After a week of making that small exchange daily, you will have avoided 1,232 calories (based on one 16 oz sugar cola each day), not to mention chemicals and sugar harmful to your gut! If you make this one small exchange every day for a year, you will have avoided 64,064 calories—Wow!
How Prebiotin Could Lend a Hand
Add Prebiotin to that water bottle and reap the rewards of adding healthy fiber to your day which will help you feel fuller and feed your good gut bacteria!

We want to hear Your Story
Now sitting here months later, it’s hard to recognize where I was at mentally, emotionally and physically prior to having Prebiotin in my life. This recent journey back to wellness was a grim reminder of how quickly all of the hard work that goes into properly caring for oneself can be compromised, leaving us vulnerable and defenseless. I am so grateful to have found something that benefits my health and well-being in SO many ways.
