With one of my BFFs, Marc. … Continue Reading “Your Brain on Intestinal Bacteria”

Schizophrenia and the Gut

In my last post, I mentioned illnesses that are now associated with alterations in the microbiome, and included schizophrenia in that list.  Out of curiosity, I’d looked it up a few days prior to writing that post.  Sure enough, I found quite a bit,… Continue Reading “Schizophrenia and the Gut”

More New Research on the Gut-Brain Connection in Parkinson’s

As I’ve mentioned before, already having 2 friends with Parkinson’s has made me particularly interested in anything that might help.  Recently, research[i] came out showing that people who have had an operation called a truncal vagotomy – in which sections of the vagus nerve… Continue Reading “More New Research on the Gut-Brain Connection in Parkinson’s”

My Trip to Moscow
