Did you know that our gut functions as a second brain? It houses over 500 million neurons, surpassing any other part of our peripheral nervous system. In fact, 90% of all signals that influence how we think, feel, and function—are actually delivered between the gut and the brain. Join me and my guest, Dr. Lauryn Lax, to learn more about the science behind the gut-brain axis and how maintaining a healthy balance can influence not only physical health but also mental and emotional wellness.


In this episode you’ll learn:

⏰ 00:00 - Introduction

Hi there! I am Jane Hogan, the Wellness Engineer, and the host of Wellness By Design. I spent 30 years designing foundations for buildings until the pain and inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis led me to hang up my hard hat and follow my heart. Now I blend my backgrounds in science and spirituality to teach people how to tap into the power of their mind, body and soul. I help them release pain naturally so they can become the most wonderful fine version of themselves. 

Wellness By Design is a show dedicated to helping people achieve wellness not by reacting to the world around them but by intentionally designing a life based on what their own body needs. In this show we explore practices, methods and science that contribute to releasing pain and inflammation naturally.
