I’ve helped hundreds of people to make peace with food (in other words, get to a healthy weight and keep it off). If you’ve been struggling with your weight, it’s probably not for the reasons you think it is…it’s likely because of brain chemicals—neurotransmitters.
This isn’t the latest diet trend—this is cold, hard science! In this podcast, I have a chat with Dr. Ann-Marie Barter, Chiropractor and Functional Medicine Practitioner, all about the role of neurotransmitters in our relationship to food and weight loss. I can’t wait to share with you Dr. Barter’s discoveries on the cutting edge of holistic healthcare!
Dr. Barter helps people to get out of pain and reach their maximum potential through a unique approach she developed after studying under some of the finest minds in her field. Her method includes high-level problem solving, focusing on functional blood chemistry analysis, nutrition, applied kinesiology, and natural remedies. She runs a clinic in Colorado called Alternative Family Medicine and Chiropractic and specializes in difficult Functional Medicine cases, including thyroid problems, blood sugar diseases, gut health, hormone dysfunction, and other metabolic conditions.
In this episode, we talk about the relationship between neurotransmitters (like dopamine and serotonin, the players in anxiety and depression) and gut health, and their effect on the mind, spirit, and particularly, the body.
