For Leaky gut people in Australia

Hello Dr. Stoll and followers

I thought this might be of interest for those in Australia wanting
to pursue Relaxation Management techniques for LGS. I have
copy and pasted from mindovergut.com which is run by the
Psychology department of Swinburne University in Melbourne. It
is nice to see funding has been given for the lecturers to further
research the Mind-Gut-Axis. The majority of effort here is
currently focused on a FODMAP diet for gut issues but it is great
to see that the role of the mind is still being investigated.

Do you want to overcome or better manage your gut distress?
Confirming what individuals with gut conditions already know,
there is a growing body of scientific research indicating that
most, if not all, gut related conditions are directly influenced by
psychological factors, including everyday stress, anxiety, and
depression. This interaction between the mind and the gut is due
to a complex neutral network commonly referred to as the
Brain-Gut-Axis (or BGA). We know that changes to individual gut
activity (and symptoms) can be linked back to changes in the
brain, individual behaviours, and the way in which we think
about ourselves.
Stress and the way we think about ourselves can not only fuel
gut related problems, such as pain, bloating,
constipation/diarrhoea, but also other commonly related
psychological problems such as feeling anxiety and depression.
This is not surprising given that individuals with gut conditions
(such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel
Disease) are more likely to also report having a concomitant
psychological condition when compared to many individuals with
other chronic health conditions.
Given this, identifying and reducing stress and the psychological
factors that contribute to destabilising normal gut function can
be one of many positive steps that can be made to reduce gut
related problems. Dr Simon Knowles has developed several
successful psychological intervention programs (both individual
and group-based) for individuals with gut related conditions,
including Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel
Disease. These programs have been specifically designed to
match the specific and common problems associated with each
gut related condition.

Thanks, Senka.

It IS gratifying to se that others are finally taking this basic mechanism seriously.
