Which came first, the chicken or the egg? The relationship between ‘gut health’ and ‘mental health’ is a similar riddle. As far back as 1933, Neuropathologist Armando Ferraro said, “It is far from our mind to conceive that all mental conditions have the same [root cause], but we feel justified in recognizing the existence of cases of mental disorders which have as a basic [cause], a toxic condition arising in the gastrointestinal tract."
‘Western’ scientific thinking has led to a deep division between the mind and the body. America and many other countries have distinct mental health and physical health professions. This division of care often leads to incomplete or poorly integrated treatment which neglects either the mind or the body. Counselors and therapists are highly skilled at addressing the mental aspects of many conditions but have few tools to address the physical conditions that affect the mind. On the contrary, syndromes and disorders which cannot be seen on an X-ray, scan, or lab result, are often taken less seriously by Medical Doctors. Individuals with these conditions may feel stigmatized by the health care system.
Finding the right mental health provider can be challenging, confusing, and overwhelming. There are not enough mental health professionals to meet the need. At least one in four American adults and one in three teens in the US have a diagnosable mental health condition.
