So more research has come out about how gut microbes cause anxiety, and mood disorders.
As someone with an anxiety disorder, this makes me feel discouraged.
In the past I did extremely well with treating my anxiety disorder through therapy, and the teachings of Dr. Claire Weekes. Using acceptance, and realizing it's just my thoughts that are causing anxiety, nothing else.
When I see something like this, I get trapped into the thought of it being something beyond my control. It actually makes my anxiety worse.
Which comes first, the gut problems, or the anxiety/mental health issues?
I eat healthy, I've taken lots probiotics in the past, and nothing has really helped me. Though, this is purely anecdotal, and i'm glad research like this is being done.
Is my gut causing my obsessing? I'm in a cycle right now where I can't stop googling this stuff.
