Polyphenols & flavonoids are bioactive compounds found in plants that are known to have numerous health benefits–especially for people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
The Microbiome-Gut-Brain Axis is one of the most central functional systems connecting the human body to the diverse ecosystems around us. The complex connections between the human gut microbiome, inflammatory bowel disease, our brain, and our health are key drivers of IBD pathogenesis that may be harnessed to promote healing from IBD.
Have you ever been told that “diet doesn’t matter for inflammatory bowel disease?” We have, but this view is outdated: diet and nutrition play a central role in the development, pathogenesis, and treatment of IBD.
Psychedelics like LSD and psilocybin (magic mushrooms) may promote change and plasticity in the brain, immune system, and microbiome to yield untapped therapeutic potential for complex inflammatory conditions like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
