Podcast Episode Forty-Three: The Gut Brain Connection

The brain gut connection is so real. Remember the last time you had to get up to do a speech in front of an audience or take a critical test, did you have that butterfly in your stomach feeling? Or worse yet, experience any gastrointestinal issues such as diarrhea?
