Feeling Higher Levels of Anxiety? It’s Time To Check Your Gut

If you’re feeling more anxious lately, you’re not alone. Reported symptoms of anxiety and depression rose over 5 percent during the 2020 pandemic, and it’s estimated that nearly one in  three adults in the U.S. will experience some sort of anxiety disorder in their lifetime. 

With those numbers, not many people will be too surprised to note an increase in pharmaceutical prescriptions as well; anti-anxiety drugs along with antidepressants have seen a significant increase in prescription rates over the last year, with some reporting an increase as high as 86% among prescribed psychotropic drugs in March and April.

But what if those anxiety rates could be lowered simply by making a few small (and healthy) changes in your life? 

The Gut-Brain Connection With Mental Health

You can remember back to one of our previous blogs in June, which put a spotlight on The Better Brain book by Drs. Bonnie J. Kaplan and Julia J. Rucklidge, leading scientists in the nutrition and mental health arenas. Not only does The Better Brain explain how and why nutrition and mental health are connected, but also includes a comprehensive program on how to use nutrition to improve your own mental health.



Alzheimer’s Could Actually Be Prevented. Here’s How

Did you know that less than 1 percent of those with Alzheimer’s develop it because of a rare genetic mutation? According to experts, that suggests that the remaining 99% of the Alzheimer’s population could’ve potentially prevented or dramatically slowed down the progression of the disease. “This doesn’t make sense,” you say. “Why then are there so many cases if so many cases can be prevented?” Read on to learn more and to learn why.

Brain Degeneration Starts Decades Before Serious Signs

So many people suffer from this debilitating disease because the brain changes that lead to Alzheimer’s begin 20-30 years before an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.



Your Family Tree Holds the Secret: Look Back to Move Forward

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” ~ Thomas Edison (1847-1931)


Look in your pantry. Consider the foods and drinks that form your diet. Now ask yourself, “would my furthest ancestor call what I eat food?” It’s hard to imagine that the oldest branch on your family tree would know what to do with twinkies, energy drinks, and grease-soaked fast-food wrappers. They may be quicker to identify the food as a potential poison than potential fuel for your body and brain–



Prepare for Impact: The Mental Health Tsunami Crests

Improving your diet and adding the right nutritional supplement improves your mental health. It isn’t an opinion; this is a fact. As Anne Wigmore said, “the food you eat can be the safest form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

Processed Food, COVID-19, & the Trouble They Brew

The most significant mental health tsunami of all time arrives. Two waves primed for destruction and fatalities of the highest degree crests:

  • Wave One: “More than half of the food intake in North America is now drawn from the lowest level: ultra-processed ‘food.’ In other words,



What do honeybees know that we don’t? Brain Food Matters.

Ask any doctor, and they’ll tell you that their medical school favored a pharmaceutical dialogue when it came to conversations on mental health concerns, not nutrition. And as you know, what you’re taught matters. 

Current Treatments Aren’t Decreasing Mental Health Cases

Like an infomercial salesperson selling a two-for-the-price-of-one deal with the classic “Wait; there’s more!” line, the pharmaceutical companies bombard today’s world with promises of a quick-fix to many ailments. Then, in the few remaining seconds of the advertisement, a fast auctioneer-like voice lists the intense side effects of the drug.

You Don’t Have More Stress; You Have Less Resiliency

Today’s world includes different stressors than that of yesteryears but not more. 

Life is not more stressful than those who survived a world when wars drafted sons, telephones didn’t leave home, and a trip to the bathroom meant a dark, cold walk to the outhouse that may or may not be housing a raccoon for the night. What is different is the modern world’s response to stress. 

If pharmaceuticals worked, mental health cases wouldn’t rise

The number of mental health issues–

COVID-19 Survivors Struggle Long After Their Isolation Ends

In May 2020, The Washington Post foreshadowed the following: Three months into the coronavirus pandemic, the country is on the verge of another health crisis, with daily doses of death, isolation, and fear generating widespread psychological trauma.
