As I read more psychology on mind control, I try to get some of my control back.
When I first heard of cognitive dissonance - I worked hard to avoid it.
When I first read about Anti-fragility/stoicism - I worked hard to practice stoicism in my daily life.
When I first heard about the placebo effect - I worked hard to talk to my "MIND" whenever I was being irrationally worried about my health.
When I first heard about the positive effects of music - I enthusiastically increased the hours I spent listening and dancing to good music.
My search for understanding and taking back control of my mind has led me to where I am today. But it looks like there is more and more research indicating that our mind is controlled by our gut bacteria.
This interview has opened my mind - more than all the other material I have encountered about the importance of gut bacteria. The gentleman in the interview states that all chronic illness are caused by an imbalance of gut bacteria. There is research even connecting it to curing type 1 diabetes.... Could it be?
So I have now decided to follow @brandonwilson and ordering Viome.
The journey continues...
