Get Your Brain, Gut and Immune System in Synch AUTHOR Terri DeNeui, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC   CATEGORY Gut Health SOCIAL @EVEXIASMEDICAL Many people tend to place different chronic illnesses in separate, tidy, little silos and look for cures in pill form. Have high blood pressure? There’s a pill for that. Feeling anxious and depressed? Pop a pill! If you find yourself stuck in this siloed mindset—while struggling with chronic illness, weight loss problems, allergies, insomnia, anxiety or depression symptoms—it’s not your fault.

In reality, God masterfully created numerous interconnected systems in the human body that were designed to work together to deliver optimum health. When these amazing systems get imbalanced or start misfiring, that’s typically when symptoms of poor physical and mental health arise. To

Feeling blue? Struggling with depression or anxiety that won’t go away?

Besides the aging process, there are many things that have been linked to sub-optimal thyroid function.

The Vital Role of Hormone Therapy in Managing Dis-ease

Our healthcare system is facing unprecedented challenges with the recent pandemic of coronavirus and ensuing SARS Cov2, or COVID-19, and it is vital healthcare providers keep their patients active and healthy so as to not over burden a vulnerable system.
