More Than 8 Million People in the US Have Mental Health Problems

An annual survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that more Americans than ever have mental problems — about 8 million adults, or 3.4 percent of the population, according to New Scientist. Researchers said this may be one reason the U.S. suicide rate is at a 30-year high.

It’s tragic that these numbers seem out of control, and that’s why it’s important to know what factors you can control in your own life to possibly circumvent mental health issues of your own. For example, did you know that revitalizing the microbes in your gut could help?

In addition to the brain in your head, embedded in the wall of your gut is your enteric nervous system (ENS), a kind of “gut brain” which works both independently of and in conjunction with the brain in your head. This is the pathway for how foods affect your mood, and new research shows that simply changing your diet may one day be a new treatment for mental health conditions.

Research by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride also shows there's a profound dynamic interaction between your gut, your brain and your immune system. Campbell-McBride has developed important treatment strategies for preventing and treating autism, as well as a wide range of other neurological, psychological and autoimmune disorders — all of which are heavily influenced by your gut health. This diet consists of easily-digestible foods that are dense in nutrition, including fermented foods. In general, avoiding processed foods and foods high in sugar/fructose is an essential component of a gut-healthy diet, as sugar feeds harmful bacteria and throws your microflora off kilter.
