Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis: 7 Steps to Optimizing the Connection

The gut and the brain are two separate but connected organs. When the gut is dysfunctional, due to microbiota imbalance, it has been shown to manifest as a neurological disorder. Equally, within hours of a traumatic brain injury, the gut is inflamed. When the gut is inflamed, the intestinal barrier breaks, allowing for the translocation of microbial antigens into the bloodstream. In response to the microbial or dietary antigens, the immune system produces autoreactive antibodies, which can infiltrate the broken blood-brain barrier and trigger neuroautoimmunity. The dysfunction of the blood-brain barrier and nervous system fuels the gut dysfunction, which fuels the brain dysfunction. This cyclic phenomenon can lead to neurodegeneration, such as Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive decline, and depression. Therefore, any treatment, or prevention, of neuroautoimmunity, must include a thorough examination of gut function. Clinical assessments for intestinal barrier and blood-brain barrier dysfunctions, systemic bacterial toxins, predictive antibodies for neuroautoimmunity and treatment protocols for healing barriers and eliminating gut dysbiosis, will be discussed. Devastating disorders involving neurodegeneration are preventable.

The microbiota-gut-brain axis is one of the most hotly debated topics in functional medicine today. Research surrounding these connections has experienced significant growth recently in the areas of incidence, assessment, and recovery. However, the jury is still out as far as the most effective protocols go. When damaged by the microbiota-gut-brain axis, these treatment protocols will lead the patients on the path to recovery without any lingering symptoms. Join Dr. Silverman in this thought-provoking seminar that will give you the tools for Monday-morning applicability.

Key Clinical Takeaways:

  • Learn how to assess both the gut and the brain for better management of chronic neurological disorders.

  • Expertly assess intestinal and blood-brain barrier dysfunctions.

  • Use predictive antibodies for the identification of neuronal tissue damage caused by environmental triggers.

  • Integrate nutritional protocols for concussions.

  • Identify modern lifestyle and environmental triggers that are affecting the gut-brain axis.
