    Very interesting to learn the connection between gut and brain

  2. Sharon says:

    Thank you for pulling these sessions together. So well presented and much needed information!

  3. Anne says:

    THANK YOU! very GENEROUS gift Sean, looking forward to it!

  4. Wendy says:

    So, where is the vagus nerve located in the neck? I have not had a traumatic brain injury but did have a hockey accident and was hit by a puck in my neck. I have had slow guts for 2+ years and wondered if it damaged my thyroid (I also have Hashi’s and leaky gut etc.)- but now I wonder if my vagus nerve could have been damaged as well? I guess I need to get out an anatomy book….

    • Rosie says:

      The vagus is one of the 12 cranial nerves. It runs from the middle base of the brain down the side of the neck to the front of the trachea.

  5. Nina says:

    THANK YOU!!!!

  6. Kelly says:

    DAAAAAAAAAAAANG Sean way to step up your game man! You were not overselling yourself in those emails. I’m so impressed seeing the comparison from your first online summit to now. I can’t wait to see the rest of the interviews, Dr. Kharrazian is a genius.

    • Sean says:

      Ha! Thanks, Kelly. We try to step up our game every time. Can’t do it without our customers. We appreciate the heck out of them for giving us the overhead to make these events happen!


  7. Chuck says:

    A real eye opener. I always thought the brain was effected by the gut not the brain causing gut issues.

  8. Greg Okulove says:

    A more than a timely discussion about the brain-gut connection. It has given much more insights about some health issues Im presently dealing with.
    Many thanks.

  9. Louise says:

    Many thanks, Sean for this superb session. So impressive and helpful for EI or MCS people

  10. NJ Gal says:

    Can’t wait to get started this first day with Dr K. A lot of info to go through, I have his two books. My ND thinks his book ….Why do I have thyroid symptoms is the best book out there on Hashimotos, that is how I found out about him a few years ago. Thanks Sean for your work!

  11. Heather Burkhardt says:

    Wow, I am going to have to read the Gut-Brain chapter in his brain book again and go gargle until I tear up. This was a fabulous interivew that I intend to listen to again. He is such a wealth of information and amazing research. I hope he lives a very long time and continues to grace us with lifechanging contributions.

  12. Carolyn says:

    Wow. Unfortunately, I feel over whelmed by all of this without a doctor trained to help.

  13. fay says:

    I feel like I won the lottery, just being able to have access to this info..thank you, thank you

  14. Ann says:

    Wow! His insights on brain/gut function were enlightening. Sean, you are a wonderful interviewer. Thanks for sharking

  15. Catherine says:

    Extremely helpful and informative Thank you

  16. Teresa says:

    Absolutely fantastic presentation. Dr. Kharrazian presents material that is changing the way natural medicine, diagnosis and healing is approached. Thank you so much Sean!

  17. YB. says:

    My son has been diagnosed with grand mal epilepsy and is taking medication. I wonder if that could also be linked to one of the issues discussed and if there is a way to cure it with a natural approach.

  18. Jennifer says:

    I have attended a lot of online health conferences, but yours are the best! Dr. Kharrazian is impressive anyway but you really managed to wring every last drop of information from him. Fantastic start!

  19. Liz says:

    Dr. Kharrazian gave an amazing talk, lots of food for thought. Thanks Sean for the excellent interview!

  20. Nina says:

    Thank you !!!

  21. Jana says:

    Sean, Thank you for putting this together. I have listened to Dr. Kharrazian speak a few times and his research and information is priceless. But you are so talented as an interviewer. That is what I am looking forward to the most about this summit. You asking the right questions, not just taking things at face value and making sure your audience is well represented. Thank you for sharing your passion and talent.

  22. My mother was diagnosed in her 50s with celiac, after suffering years of anemia, hypothyroidism and IBS. She died in her 70s from Progressive Supranuclear Palsey, a rare brain disorder. At the time I suspected the root cause was her undiagnosed celiac, and did find some literature that suggested the link. Thank you, Dr. Karrazian for pushing the boundaries on this topic. I also suffer from IBS, so it weighs heavily on my mind (however much of it I might have left of it at this point!)

  23. Debbie says:

    Such valuable information. Any chance you might plan a summit or do some interviews going into more derail about lyme disease?

  24. Shira says:

    Thank you again and again for your generosity of heart in allowing us free downloads. It is so important to re-listen to the valuable information on today’s summits, and being a visual person I especially appreciate the transcripts. They allow me to locate specific points without having to search through an audio or video file!
    And a small but important matter: I dig your Captcha’s the most! They let me succeed the first time around. πŸ™‚

  25. Elizabeth says:

    Sean and Dr. Kharrazian, your interview was amazing and you both give me HOPE! Thank you for explaining the brain-gut connection for ordinary people like me (non-medical background).

  26. Lara says:

    Will this be available again during the original Digestion Sessions schedule? I hope so!

  27. Arlene says:

    Wow! I am gluten intolerant, leaky gut, and was told I have white matter lesion in my brain from x Ray last year. Now I know why, and there’s hope for me to fix this. I’ve been working on fixing this for 6 years, much better, but not totally out of the woods. All because of this brain gut connection. Thank you for this information!

  28. Angie says:

    Thank you both for a very informative session.

  29. Ingrid says:

    I read Dr. Kharrazians book “Why isn’t my brain working?”. This guy is absolutely brilliant and he is light-years ahead of the masses. It makes me sad that mainstream physicians are so ignorant and follow the Big Pharma agenda.

  30. Speaking of motility issues, 18 years ago, my patient Charlie had back pain radiating down his leg. He was about 30 years old and I gave him his first chiropractic adjustment. When I moved his spine, it sounded like sitting on a bag of potato chips. He looked at me with this look of fear. I sent him home and told him to come back the next day.

    When he came in the next day, he didn’t have pain anymore. I asked “what else?” He said “I can have sex again”. He explained he had the problem for ten years. I asked “what else?” He said he didn’t have constipation anymore. I asked “what was that look on your face about?” He said “I had to go to the bathroom”. It was as if 10 years of nerve interference was released at once.

    This is a true story. The point is, nerve signals that pass through the spine can be diminished by tension in the spine. some times correcting the motility issue isn’t so complicated.

  31. Nadia says:

    Dr Datis Kharrazian, first time I have heard about you, even though I have been researching about nutrients and the body for the last few years. I am a nurse, work in healthcare and strongly do not believe in pharmacology, even though I give out these poisonous drugs routinely. I cannot believe how f-ing smart you are. How do you function with all those neurons racing around. And I thought I was pretty smart. You fascinate me with your knowledge. Keep up the profound work you are doing. Help us all!!!

  32. Brenda says:

    Great info – I’ve tried the gut remedies with limited success and now I know to add some brain. Thanks so much for this interview – I appreciate the explanation of the next steps I can take. Gargling as we speak!

  33. Terri says:

    Thanks so much. This makes me wonder if there’s any connection with the pituitary tumor my husband had removed in the mid-90’s, and his leaky gut and the many food sensitivities he has now. There’s so much to learn!

  34. Excellent presentation. I’m looking forward to other speakers and I certainly enjoyed the enthusiasm and passion in this interview. I’m desperately seeking a functional medicine dr/ practitioner where I live. I’m close to Sydney, Australia can you help?

  35. MR PALEO says:

    AWESOME !!!! Thanks for sharing this….

  36. watchmom3 says:

    This was an amazing interview; have to say, Sean, you are a very good interviewer and I feel like I get more with you in that position. Thank you. My question has to do with my mom; she has been on Elavil for almost 40 yrs and she has had chronic constipation and emotional problems for all these years. She is open to alternative medicine and she recently did an elimination diet and a major cleanse. She was better for a time, and then right back to all the chronic problems. She struggles with depression and sometimes, paranoia. Is it too late? 40 yrs is a long time. I know Elavil affects those neuro/receptor sites, so, if I heard you correctly, it may be… Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

  37. k says:

    this motility / brain gut issue is ME to a T – any practitioners you recommend in Melbourne?

  38. Sherry says:

    Fabulous!!!! I look forward to the rest of the seesions! Thank you so much!

  39. Jodi Cohen says:

    Love the way he is talking about the vagal nerve and the parasympathetic state. we have been talking about triggering the vagal nerve from the brain down. the neurological firing pathway can be triggered with stimulatory essential oils, like the Vibrant Blue Oils Parasympathetic blend

  40. m says:

    Whoa! Thank you! Long term brain symptoms, yes wheat/gluten intolerance but even wheat/dairy free and clean diet for 32 years did not ‘cure’. Looking forward to specifics on cross reactivity w/ paleo..since got rid of ALL grains for over a year now, but not better in the brain dept. yet. Still hopeful. Will start gargling LOL. This helps! : )
    Looking forward to reading his books.

  41. Bonita says:

    Amazing information! Thank you so very very much! Can’t wait to hear more!

  42. Fantastic interview Sean! Loved this different approach Dr Kharrazian takes for digestive issues. Loads of info that I can apply to my patients in clinic. Thanks, Kasey πŸ™‚

  43. Betsy says:

    Dr. Kharrazian is amazing. This is the second time I have heard him discus the brain gut connection and his knowledge on this subject is impressive.
    Thank you Sean for creating such an incredible format open to everyone who has an interest in cutting edge health and healing.

  44. Sue says:

    Mind blowing honest and to the point info.

  45. Jackie Adlington says:

    So if a person takes gabapentin for spinal stenosis and finding a significant slowdown in gut motility what are the options of improving gut motility.

  46. jayda says:

    I have listened to too many summits in the last 6 months. I’m currently a stay-at-home mom of teens: I have time to listen throughout a day! This summit/style of presenting is far superior to all the rest. The information might be similar but you know how to interview, to be engaging – without dominating. And the team’s ability with cameras …absolutely professional quality. Hire yourselves out to all these other summit-producing people!! Thank you.

  47. nathalie says:

    Love it! I like to go to see him but unfortunately I live in Netherlands and as far as I know no one who knows this specific information here in Netherlands

  48. Katie says:

    Thank you for interviews that educate and that have real substance to them. Your clarification of terminology is helpful. Your focus on the subject rather than on personal story telling is straight forward and adds value to the time used. The face to face interviews are refreshing. Videography is simple and well done. The professionals you have interviewed thus far seem to be cutting edge on latest research, realistic and open minded with a view to getting answers. Perhaps some of them are treading a ‘Rogue’ like path in their fields but they are grounded and not dismissive of working together to find answers. Thank you for your own down to earth approach. Thank you for caring about people and for making this series available to us. Your hard work is appreciated. I look forward to tuning in for the rest of the interviews.

  49. Gena says:

    Thank yo so much for all the extras you are putting into this summit! – the cooking videos, the video tips relating to affiliates, putting this interview out there early, and doing video vs audio. You have gone above and beyond. I’m currently only 10 minutes into this interview with Dr. Datis Kharrazian, but am glued to my seat. I can’t wait for the whole summit to start. This will be one I won’t miss much of, if any!

  50. Pelagia says:

    I’m so impressed seeing the comparison from your first online summit to now. Great work!

  51. Madeline says:

    So I think this is awesome information, but I have a hard time believing that the brain would be the main cause for leaky gut. As we know, gut flora is really important. If your gut flora is imbalanced, then they don’t act as a gut lining protector. Usually what causes the gut flora to be imbalance is certain foods, right? Maybe there’s a chemical that is release from the brain that dramatically affects the gut flora, by killing it or something? I definitely want to lean how the brain affects the gut when leaky gut occurs! Any one able to help me out on this?

  52. Jenny says:

    Awesome gifts!! Thank you Sean! Absolutely awesome interview. Dr K has so much information to share. The transcripts will definitely be helpful! Looking forward to the rest of the Dig Sessions!! πŸ™‚

  53. Jake Eagle says:

    This is the best, most informative interview I’ve seen related to gut and brain issues. My immediate reaction was to share with several friends and buy the book. Thank you so much for providing such substantive interviews. I feel like you are the Charlie Rose of the internet.

  54. I am not able to virw or listen to the video…any suggestions??? Thank you.

  55. Rebecca says:

    FINALLY! Here is a man that goes beyond the fad and actually cares about the reasons behind chronic issues. I almost feel like crying joyful tears. How much time and money have a lot of us with digestion issues wasted on gimmicks and poor doctors. Most of the time I feel like I’m at a poop parade, watching Doctors on Pharmaceutical Floats tossing out pills. When I heard this I thought “Of course it is brain related! Of course it can be healed with food!”

  56. Terry says:

    I wonder what Dr K thinks about Dr William Walsh and the Walsh protocols? This gut-brain connection would explain why so many people with chronic and autoimmune disease are being helped by the Walsh protocols, which are all about identifying metabolic/neurotransmitter imbalances and treating them nutritionally.

  57. dkaj says:

    Awesome video!! First time I’ve heard anyone actually going to the root causes of all of this. I would be interested in knowing if Dr. Kharrazian has more info in his books on autism spectrum disorders and the brain gut connections. It just seems like there is such a rise in autism spectrum disorders with children, and these children have gut disorders that go along with it, but would like to hear his views on what is being damaged in these cases. I would love to buy one of his books that explains this more, but need to know if any of them cover this subject.

  58. Anna says:

    What an awesome presentation! I can’t wait to listen to it again because there is just so much excellent information that is talked about…thank you Sean for always being a great interviewer! I love listening to your interviews…and I love how you have the presenters go back and clarify their information for the layperson!!! Can’t wait for the rest of the presenters!

  59. Great topic – what about high blood pressure and desensitized baroreceptors that regulate blood pressure. Vagus may be involved. Does Dr. K have an answer for that. Not necessarily thyroid or autoimmune problem. Sleep problems. Can this be reversed.

  60. Flower says:

    Thanks for the wonderful video Sean. Can you please do a session with a doc that can help heal our young toddlers with autism. If 80% of autism is due to gut issues, we may have a few doctors who can help us heal our kids in a safe and nice way. My 5 yr old cannot gargle and still resists brushing for that matter. If you already have sessions on autism, please guide me to those videos. Thanks again for all the great work that you do!

  61. Ana says:

    Hi Sean,
    Can you make this videos with subtitles (english of course), please? It would be easier for us.

    Thank you

  62. Ana says:

    Hi Sean,
    Can you please make these videos with subtitles (english of course)?

    Thank you

  63. Carol says:

    GREAT interview Sean! It was both fascinating and interesting. Dr. K is doing some valuable research and I love that he is so willing to share it and educate us. He rocks!

  64. Shonda says:

    Wondering if there is something wrong with my vagus nerve. It feels as if there is a burning/aching feeling along the neck where it’s located. I have such a feeling. And on that same side the arch he mentions in the video is lower (not as pronounced) in my mouth. I used to have brain fog which has pretty much cleared with a real food diet, but my digestive system is REALLY slow. I’ve tried supplements, exercise, increased water…it’s just not right. I have to eliminate certain foods because of this. Just eating vegetables mostly, avocados, quinoa and oat BRAN (cannot eat oatmeal) only as my first meal. Very good info…gonna find a doctor that can check my situation based on what I just learned. Thanks to you both.

  65. Catherine says:

    Thank you so much! This was informative and waaay beyond what I expected from the series. Thank you thank you thank you!

  66. lucien says:

    Thank you Dr. Kharmzian for sharing your work and research. Interesting to hear where the research is heading. Such a cascade of interactions that effect several systems in the body.

  67. Eva says:

    This is a mind blowing information. Thank you Sean and Dr. Kharrazian for educating people.

  68. Jae says:

    Would peppermint also be helpful for stimulating the vagus nerve to improve gut motility? This interview describes my situation to a T right up front, I’ve never had such a good explanation, and it did also get me to thinking about peppermint’s ability to “put me right” when I’m feeling a little foggy and/or like I’m not digesting well. I’ve read peppermint stimulates the vagus nerve, I wonder if Dr. Kharrazian has any thoughts on whether it would be a helpful addition to gargling, gagging, singing, and (gulp) coffee enemas.

  69. Pam says:

    Thank you Sean for such a great and informative interview. You offer a great service for learning about health. Looking forward to more!

  70. Jasmine says:

    This was FANTASTIC!!! Thank you for having Dr. Kharrazian as a speaker! He is super awesome and explained everything so well. Question….for the autoimmune testing, would we see a Neurologist or a GI MD?

  71. Anna Hymel says:

    Hi Sean…my sister plugged me into your interviews due to my health issues…. This has given me both hope and insight… Problem is not having a doctor here… We live in New Orleans, Louisiana… Can you recommend a doctor here or close by that can help me with leaky gut-leaky brain issues?? Thank you in advance for your help!

  72. Kristi Brown says:

    Dr. Kharrazian is always leap years ahead! My mind is blown, this was a phenomenal session. Thank you for putting these sessions together Sean Croxton!

  73. B says:

    Of all of the fascinating info, I actually really appreciated your question about why he looks at thyroid or brain and his answer was that he doesn’t care about which part of the body it is, that he goes where the clinical questions take him. Almost all of the other practitioners entered this space because of a personal health situation. It’s really stuck with me that if practitioner’s were just in it to answer the clinical questions, how objective the information would be. Great job Sean.

    As a follow up though, could you find out the recommended dosage for the tumeric and resveratrol? Thanks

  74. Karen Holla says:

    thank you so much Sean for this hands down excellent interview with Dr. Kharrazian. clear and easy to follow….this going to be shared far and wide….thank you both…thank you!

  75. Suzanne says:

    After listening a few days ago I have been experimenting w gargling. I saw a mainstream practitioner today and asked her if I could have a few tongue depressors. She gave me a WHOLE BUNCH! Gag Me! (In a good way of course). This is mind blowing stuff Shawn. Thanks for the previews, and all the other great stuff!!!!

    Game changer, thank you for breaking this down!!!

  78. Pamela says:

    Great video… Can’t check emails while listening to Dr. K! He speaks quickly and has so much informative and detailed info to follow and understand — I did not want to miss anything! Thanks, Sean.

  79. Karin says:

    Fantastic, super interesting. And for a non-native English speaker; the Pdf is very helpful to read like subtitles next to the video πŸ˜‰ Thanks a lot!

  80. Maybe you’re thinking you’ve heard this promise, as well want
    it, before. With Sonic Producer, you’ll be able to make your own personal beats as creative and personalized as you want, without compromising the standard of
    sound. The great thing about Sonic Producer is that
    it is indeed user friendly.

  81. Alfiah says:

    Thankyou Dr Kharrazian for your generosity in giving the interview. I am delighted to know about the need for a good brain gut connection and how to improve it, not something covered in my recently acquired Nutritional Medicine degree. Also, Sean, I appreciate the knowledge needed to ask such relevant questions, my hat off to you too.

  82. I think that is among the such a lot important information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. However should
    remark on few normal things, The web site style is wonderful, the articles is actually nice : D.
    Excellent process, cheers

  83. Jan says:

    Thank you so very much for this incredible information; especially the fact that it is free. This is fascinating and I will further research all of this. Thank you all for all your hard work in providing and coordinating this, bless you all.

  84. Sabrina says:

    Wow! I’m totally blown away by this video. It explains so much. Suffering with chronic gut issues since the birth of my baby but now I know that there is so and much more to it. Very frustrated that gut testing and treatment for parasites, herbal supplements, change of diet etc has had little effect. Now I’m aware that it’s related to brain trauma (I’ve been in several road accidents and have had whip lash as a well as a whole host of other symptoms). Thanks for this refreshing information and advice. Nice to know that I’m not going nuts. Dr’s in the UK are not helpful and functional nutritionists have only provided limited assistance within the realm of what they have learnt. Thanks for providing some mental relief to these issues.

  85. Suzan Parrish says:

    Thank you!!!

  86. Elaine says:

    Is there any tie in or considerations that will impact Charcoe-Marie-Toothe Syndrome? If so, can you point me in a direction to research further or change or whatever you would be willing to advise?

  87. NoGlu says:

    also related to vagus nerve dysfunction? spin bifida occult and erectile dysfunction?

  88. Gail says:

    On page 32 of the manuscript, the word trans-contaminates is used. Do you mean transglutaminase? For instance, transglutaminase-2, transglutaminase-6? If not, what are trans-contaminates 2, 3, and 6?

    This was a powerfully informative interview. Hat off to both Dr.s Croxton and Kharrazion for sharing the gut-brain connection to our health.

  91. Sharon B says:

    Hope you can leave this interview up and available for the duration of your summit.
