Healing the Head Brain and the Gut (Belly Brain)

In my September podcast I mentioned that I was working on an article about gluten and the small intestine (which I often refer to as the belly brain).  The problem is that the more I learn about nutrition and the small intestine, the less I know. 🙂

So rather than give you a bunch of information that I have accumulated which may or may not be helpful for your physical health, I am going to do something different and point you to an interview series on gut health called The Digestion Sessions that is launching on Sunday, November 9th.

I am familiar with several of the experts being interviewed in this series, and after watching the first pre-release video on the gut-brain connection, I feel very good about recommending this video series to you.

The way these kind of things work is that you sign up and get free access to all the videos for a certain amount of time, and the full video set along with some other bonuses is available to purchase.  I already made my purchase, but remember that you can watch all the videos for zero charge.  (Full disclosure: if you do purchase after clicking my link, I will get a commission.)

If you’ve been with me for any length of time, you know I don’t promote things often, but after you watch the first video with Dr Kharrazian, I think you’ll understand why I am excited for all of us to learn this information.

This link will redirect you to their website where you can sign up to receive the videos:

Here’s to happy belly brains!

Much Love,
Cameron Day

p.s.  Biological bodies are all different, and what works for one person may not work for another. In this day and age, diet has become more divisive than religion, so please do not post comments like, “I’m doing the ______ diet / regimen, and everyone else should be doing it too because ______.”   or, “If people aren’t eating _______ they are killing the planet/themselves/etc.”

    I’ m very interested in this theme, but at the same time I’m surprised and worried because of the damage to our body produced by the gluten and wheat in general…..I ‘ m convinced that you can’t separate your general health of the health of your gut..

    When I was a child, I had a terrible painful infection in my intestines. I couldn’t hold water down, let alone eat. I was hospitalized for three weeks, fed and medicated intravenously. Thank goodness I recovered but the doctors never figured out what caused the infection. Perhaps these videos will give me some insight. Looking forward to the program. Thank Cameron. 🙂

    I made some squash soup and decided to try a kosher brand of chicken stock. Well I awoke in the morning and felt not well and eyes were swollen and off. So I went to see the ingredient’s list and the very last thing listed was GMO. I’m like a cannery in the cage for the miners if its not good for you I have reaction right away. Pay attention to your body listen feel it will tell you. Also NEVER NEVER eat GMO! And I will make my own stock for now on! Thanks Cameron

    “Wheat Belly” by Dr William Davis was a life-changer for me.

    Knew I was a bread/carb addict but until I read that book I had no idea WHY. Basically Dr Davis advocates that we shouldn’t be eating grains of ANY kind (especially modern GMO wheat) because they all jack up the blood sugar (including the so-called “healthy” whole grains like oats, rice and quinoa) and cause havoc.

    All I know is that when I stay away from wheat and grains my carb cravings are almost nil, my digestive system is stable, and I don’t feel nearly as “gummed up” or sluggish. I’ve been “cheating” a lot in the last few weeks and have really felt awful. Time to get back on the wagon!

    I posted something here earlier, I was the 2nd comment I believe and now it’s gone. I don’t see how there was anything wrong with it. I posted about Dr (deleted) and how he’s proven over and over again that there is only one diet for the human species. (deleted)

    • This is the exact kind of comment that I am asking NOT be posted. I will add to the list for people to please refrain from posting “There is only ONE diet that is good for humans.”

      Sorry, but anyone who tells you that there is only one diet for every human being is either missing very important information, ignoring that information, or lying.

      • Michelle

        Would you please tell us why there is not one diet for humans as a species? What information am I missing? And where is that info coming from? I always say don’t knock it till you try it. But there is no arguing that acidic foods don’t damage cells.

    Is it Sunday or November 8th? I got a chuckle out of your last statement. I have believed for quite some time there is a variety of human genetic code on this planet in various mixes, not one any better than the other, but probably would diversify the individual need for diet to some degree or another. People seem to be stuck on this idea that humanity arose from a single genetic code as if we had only one source from the sea on forward. Its a great fairy tale.

  • anthony

    Just wanted to clarify my statement on the idea of various mixes of genetic code and diversification. My logical guess is that comparing one individual with another each individual on the planet probably has varying quantities of the the same suite, if you will, of genetic code. If the genetic code of humanity has been contributed to by many diversified genetic codes in history to form one genetic code then that suite of genetic codes making up the one may manifest in varying combinations from one individual to the next. Which may effect diet from one individual to the next. I find this to be true when comparing myself to others- even when i try and change my diet I still have to stick with a certain regimen of what has already been working for me.
    I have come up with that premise mostly based on forbidden archeology. Also Loyd Pye fits well in this scenario. I did get some formal Anthropological and Archeological training at a very prestigious college for those studies but I never bought the Linear theory of Human cultural development of civilization idea that they try and feed you. Too much archeological evidence against it. As well the anthropological record shows really strange 0-60 in a second type growth of civilization in the Mesopotamian period with all sorts of obvious contact and exchange of energy with other civilizations.
    I do have to admit that I did,nt pay enough attention in school to the science of genetics, but with all the above mentioned evidence the linear idea would have to be proven to me.

    Thank you very much for sharing this series with us. I am very interesting in the brain\belly connection with health. I have had such a low immune system and I am ready to take ownership of my health. I appreciate your kindness and generosity.

    Hey Cameron,

    Just saying thank you for recommending this series. Even the freebies that were posted prior to the actual event are fascinating. I’ve been studying health & nutrition for 43 years, and I am so thankful to see such an abundance of good information now available for everyone to take advantage of.

    With much gratitude

    Hello Cameron, the window to send my email so i can get on your mIling list, does not work.
    And same prolem when clicking ontne link to get the videos.
    Can you help ..

  • Just remember, fluoride is SUPER good for you! And so are vaccines. Haha.

  • MiraOCeti

    This video from the series is not longer available, but is up on youtube. It is on the brain gut access, fascinating, especially as you, Cameron, talk about the three brains: brain, heart and gut.
