Katie Cole, DO
How many of your clients seem to have “brain fog”, or trouble focusing and concentrating, and remembering what you discussed in your therapy sessions? Or also have low motivation to apply these coping skills? Have any of your clients ever expressed frustration with the outcomes of psychiatric medication treatment?
When I first began psychiatric practice over 14 years ago I remember feeling frustrated with the limited and minimal response I would see with most psychotropic medications. As I began to practice holistic and integrative medicine, I realized how vital the gut-brain connection is, and how any type of gut dysfunction can significantly alter physical and emotional well-being, mimicking many psychiatric syndromes including ADHD, fatigue, depression, anxiety and even mood swings.
Recognizing and treating gut dysfunction along with nutritional deficiencies can have a drastic result in improving your clients’ focus and concentration, energy levels, motivation and even depression, anxiety and mood stability. Today we will review how the gut and brain are intricately connected; some simple ways that you can help your clients improve their digestive health and nutritional deficiencies, powerfully impacting the results of your therapy practice.
