Mike: Are you familiar with a book "The Second Brain" by Dr. Michael Gershon?
The second brain
Tom: I am extremely familiar with that research. It is one of my favorite books on the planet, even though it is one of the most difficult books on the planet to read.
Mike: Maybe you recommended this book to me. It is important for readers to know that there is emerging science in the field of neurogastroenterology. Even the name implies that the gut has its own complex nervous system, that it is a second brain and communicates with the primary brain. Like you said, the neurotransmitters that we are so concerned about in our brains and with antidepressant drugs and SSRIs and so on, those neurotransmitters are actually manufactured in the gut. I think these are "wow" concepts for a lot of people.
Holistic healing and the gut / brain connectionTom: The beauty of the book "The Second Brain," and the field of neurogastroenterology, is that it is the first concrete evidence we can hold onto to show a merging of two paradigms.
Now, the natural medicine paradigm, if you look at traditional Chinese medicine, classic naturopathic philosophy, the Shamanic traditions, or the native culture traditions, will look at disease as an imbalance in the body's mechanisms and a breakdown of normal function. Most of those protocols, if you look at the philosophies underpinning these different paradigms, point to bringing balance back to the body, even though modern natural medicine is becoming too much "green allopathic," or using natural products used to treat symptoms, rather than address disease in the body. So many of the protocols talk about gut and liver, and it all begins in that area. It is great that there really is, within the philosophies of those traditions, some real commonality, but it would be nice if there were some modern medical research that would help us gain some real credence to the possibility of what these ancient traditions are teaching.
That is where "The Second Brain" and neurogastroenterology just rings huge bells. We have always known that the gut is responsible for digesting and absorbing the food that we eat and getting the nutrients out of food that we need. For a long time, we have also accepted that the gut is a huge player in our immune function. Now this research is showing it is also huge in neurological function.
Probably the most compelling evidence from that book, in my mind, is two things: the first is that when they do autopsies on Parkinson's and Alzheimer's patients they find tissue damage, lesions in the brain tissue that are indicative of either Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. Obviously, we have always accepted those conditions as being neurological brain injury diseases. However, in those same patients, if they continue to dissect the gut tissue, and they get to the neurological tissue of the second brain and the enteric nervous system -- the gut brain -- they find lesions in the gut identical to what they see in the brain.
For the first time, we are able to show that a condition thought to be strictly neurological has pathology in the gut. Does it start in the brain and move to the gut? Start in the gut and move to the brain? Or, is in both places at the same time? What you can extrapolate from this work is that if you have a problem in your brain, you have a problem in your gut. Now, is this not directly reflective of all the ancient healing traditions?
Mike: Absolutely, and just the very idea that both health and disease are holistic in nature. You cannot isolate the body parts and treat them in isolation.
Tom: That is exactly right.
Mike: They are all connected. Again, it gets back to the food. Your food is your best medicine. If there is something wrong with your health, food is probably the first place to look.
