The microbiome-gut-brain axis is a unique route of communication between the host and the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract that may affect mood, immunity, and CNS function.  Stress has been shown to disrupt the gut-brain-microbiome axis through changes in the gut wall, neurotransmitter levels, and alterations in the microbiota.  Studies demonstrate alterations in microbiota populations, GI tissues, or gut-related neurotransmitters occur due to trauma or stress, and may continue to affect health and homeostasis long after the stressor is removed.  Disruptions to the microbiome can often be corrected through simple, but effective interventions, including probiotics, prebiotics, diet, and stress management.
