Featured Interview – Chad T Grant Talks Gut Brain Connection For WhichDoctor.com

In a year where a novel viral pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on global human society, there's never been a better time to explore innovative ways to increase our collective immunity. While conventional medicine advises hygiene, social distancing, and masks as primary interventions (avoidance strategies), functional medicine looks deeper for the root causes of why someone has compromised immunity.

As with many other health issues, immunity starts in the gut. Inflammatory foods, toxin exposures, and chronic stress all play major roles in breaking down the function of the mucosal barrier in the gut lining which acts as the first line of defense against bacterial, parasitic, and viral pathogens.

In addition to immunity, emerging research shows that the health of the gut microbiome also plays a huge role in mental health. When digestion and absorption in the gut are comprised, key amino acids cannot be sufficiently synthesized from protein molecules, resulting in neurotransmitter deficiencies that can contribute to cycles of mental illness. Poor nutrition and meal habits can also lead to blood sugar regulation issues, causing brain fog, mental fatigue, and mood swings.

I recently sat down with Catherine Morris, writer for WhichDoctor, for an interview for her latest article Why You Should Listen to Your Gut – The Gut Brain Connection. In addition to discussing our clinical approach helping clients overcome chronic digestive and cognitive issues with natural methods, she also did a great job reviewing the latest science on the microbiome and gut-brain axis in relation to mental health, psychiatric disorders, and addiction.

If you suspect that your digestion may be affecting your immunity or mental health and are ready for a change, you can schedule a 60-minute Gut and Brain Health Consultation where we'll create your Top 5 Action Items to accelerate your healing.

If you're ready for a deeper transformation, our Data Driven Health Accelerator™ coaching programs include state-of-the-art microbiome stool testing that uses whole genome sequencing to create customized supplement recommendations for optimal gut restoration.

Hi Chad,
First, your parents are awesome people and I have had the pleasure of knowing them for about 20 years. Secondly, I’m very impressed with your practice. Lastly, I have struggled with my weight/gut health for most of my life. I have also struggled with mental health issues most of my life too. I’m a childhood sexual abuse survivor and it’s played havoc on my mental health throughout my adult life from PTSD, anxiety, panic disorders, and a lot of depression. I have dealt with fatigue a lot also. I’m at a point in my life where I am praying it’s not too late to make the changes I need to get healthy and most importantly live longer. Given my mental health issues which I currently take Cymbalta for daily, I have struggled with quitting smoking cigarettes. I love being a Grandma so I truly want to get healthy to watch them grow up! I’m 5’4” and weigh 185. I have been told by my cardiologist that I need to be on an anti-inflammatory diet because my system is inflamed. I have been struggling with loose stools for almost 4 weeks now and my most recent blood test came back with elevated WBC and elevated Neutrophils. I can’t get into see Gastrologist until the 17th of this month. I have requested a X-ray of my abdomen and should hear tomorrow about that. I would appreciate any and all information you could give me to help get healthy and feel good. Thank you for your time. God Bless you! Sincerely, Kim
