How to improve your mental health for entrepreneurs
Dr Jacqui Fleury, ND of True Potential Health Clinic speaks on mental health and the gut at the Entrepreneurs Organization of Canada.
Mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, brain fog or fatigue affect 25% of the population, but that number increases dramatically to 72% if you are an entrepreneur.
The gut produces 90% of your serotonin.
Anxiety and depression are symptoms of another problem, and they originate where you least expect it. Serotonin is your feel good chemical in your brain that is produced by your gut. Think of your gut as a separate brain. One bout of antibiotics or montezuma revenge can disrupt the 6 pounds of microbes that rule your gut and change you from happy to sad.
25 years of clinical experience indicates that fixing your gut will fix your brain.
Using the metaphor of tending a garden, a few modifications on diet, a gut protocol and vitamin supplementation – all within your control – can get your energy back and feeling well.
Mental heath awareness has been the forefront approach for a few years now, but the gut needs to get the attention it deserves. There are many signs that your body is out of whack that you may not connect to brain function. This is not normal –and definitely not a part of aging.
