BIOLOGY OF THE BRAIN
Are you sick?
Are you plagued by chronic health problems with no cure or remedy in sight?
Are you tired of spending thousands on medications that only seem to make you worse?
Think that your drugs are a sham that are just managing symptoms and never dealing with the root cause? You’re not alone!
Millions suffer from similar ailments and health struggles just like you, only to be prescribed more medications that can actually cause harm, and in some cases, even kill you. The medical industry has it all backward!
Chronic health conditions and mental health disorders are increasing at an alarming rate, and yet we are still trying to use the same old ineffective drugs that can have very serious side effects.
We’re the blind leading the blind in the hopes that the next great pill will solve all of our problems. Meanwhile, the health of the majority of Canadians and Americans is deteriorating—fast!
But there is a growing understanding in the community that there’s a bigger beast at the heart of the health epidemic…
It’s called the microbiome. And it’s intimately connected to your brain.
Microbiome health is brain health.
In The Biology of the Brain, Kent MacLeod, pharmacist, founder and CEO of NutriChem Compounding Pharmacy and Clinic, breaks down why modern medicine is killing people instead of healing them. Instead of leaving the problem as it stands, he provides you with clear, actionable steps to not only heal your microbiome, but to restore your brain health and get your life back.
READ AN EXCERPT
“The Biology of the Brain” How Your Gut Microbiome Affects Your Brain by Kent MacLeod, R.Ph. B.Sc. Phm. Is a Must Read!
Everyone has stomach issues. All I hear from my readers is “I’m bloated, I have stomach cramping, I’m constipated, I have terrible gas, I have unexplained weight gain”. It goes on and on.
As we age, we encounter so many health problems, from bacterial overgrowth to inflammation, SIBO, (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), that’s your bloated intestines, to acid reflux with more and more people reporting esophageal cancer probably as a result of acid reflux. Acid reflux, otherwise known as GERD, (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is rampant. You see it in the swollen and irritated bellies of so many people causing terrible discomfort.
Personally, I too have been plagued by GI issues for the past several years. For me, it all started with a misdiagnosis, a nightmare so terrifying I have written about in two of my books. I was given 24-hour IV antibiotics for six days straight, night and day, medicine pouring into my veins for an infection I didn’t have.
Little did I know this antibiotic invasion of my body would upset the microbiome in my GI tract for years to come and it’s never been right since. In fact, at that time, I didn’t even know what a microbiome was let alone try to fix it. I had no idea of gut balance and that gut balance was the right ratio of good bacteria to bad bacteria, yet here I was taking IV antibiotics that were taking away all balance. How was that going to make me healthy? I had no idea that the gut and the brain were so intertwined, so interconnected.
