Whether you have a little or a lot of alcohol in your life, today’s episode will teach you a lot about the effects of alcohol on your body.

Our guest today is Dr. Brooke Scheller, a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition specializing in alcohol’s effects on your brain, gut, and hormones. She combines her clinical background with a passion for health-tech and innovation in the food, supplement and personalized wellness industry. Dr. Brooke is a leader in the space, pioneering the understanding of how alcohol impacts the gut, our nutritional pathways, and the brain through nutrient deficiencies. From the gut to the brain, this show will help you refrain. Enjoy! 😊 

The Nuggets of Midlife Wisdom from today’s show:

  1. Having protein at every meal helps you to better balance your blood sugar and stave away low blood sugar dips.
  2. Women have greater challenges with intermittent fasting because of hormonal fluctuations. 
  3. It all starts in the gut. The gut sends signals to the brain and the brain is then sending signals to the rest of the body.
  4. Alcohol shifts the microbiome balance towards more of the bad bacteria, which can in turn signal cravings for alcohol. 
  5. Alcohol contributes to leaky gut syndrome. 
  6. Alcohol contributes rto anxiety and depressive type of symptoms.
  7. The more you put alcohol in your body, the more you are training your brain and body to want and need alcohol to feel better.
