Brain – Heart–Gut Axis
Through her extensive medical training, decades of patient care, and continuous analysis, Dr. Lesley James believes that achieving optimal health and vitality begins with maintaining a healthy brain, heart, and gut. Through a combination of conventional, integrative and preventive methods, Dr. James addresses the interconnection and communication among these three systems, which she has characterized the Brain-Heart-Gut Axis, allowing her to discern and address the source of numerous chronic, preventable and reversible diseases.
Understanding the interactions and biological patterns can aid in the unraveling of complex disease processes
While chronic medical conditions are customarily complex and multifactorial, health issues such as heart, digestive and neurologic diseases are too often considered in isolation. Dr. James has consistently found that these systems work quite intimately together, as evidenced by amazing extensive communicative modalities such as neural networks, hormone pathways, and immune environments. Interactions and biological patterns of the brain, heart, and gut can aid in the unraveling of complex disease processes, and Dr. James not only believes that their connectivity must be considered in treating the Whole Person, but that this comprehensive approach to the Brain-Heart-Gut Axis will shape the future of disease prevention.
