“Probiotics on the Brain”

IPA AdminUncategorized

Elizabeth Gehrman has written “Probiotics on the Brain” which appeared October 12 in the Boston Globe Magazine and online here.

Gehrman spotlights Dr. James Greenblatt, a psychiatrist and the chief medical officer of Walden Behavioral Care in Waltham, Massachusetts who uses probiotics along with traditional medicine in his practice.

The discovery of a gut-brain axis across which microbes “talked” to the brain lit up the medical community at both ends: gastrointestinal as well as psychiatric health could be impacted.
