Probiotics in Mental Health (PDF) explores the role of probiotics in a range of clinical presentations linked with significant psychopathology and enables a reassessment of how mental illness may be conceptualized within a coherent gut-brain model of health and wellbeing. Under the title of enhancing wellbeing rather than dwelling on illness and disease, this stimulating new volume not only includes the latest evidence in the field but also encourages an approach characterized by the understanding of mental disorder within an evidence-based model and the search of mental health and wellbeing through the most benign of interventions.

The concept that the brain and gut are intricately linked is widely accepted not just within the lay community but increasingly within therapeutic and scientific circles as well. Terms like “heartache” and “gut-wrenching” are more than only metaphors, they show key basic aspects of human experience which all persons will invariably bear from time to time. The relationship between the brain and gut is very complex but fundamental to health and wellbeing. Increasing and compelling evidence backs the existence of a relationship between the health and status of the gut and the manifestation of important psychopathology. Exclusively within the field of mental health and psychiatry, the role of probiotics and gut flora in both the understanding and treatment of mental illness show a developing science whether the ability for therapeutic intervention, by the use of probiotics, provides an opportunity to determine efficacy within a comprehensible evidence-based model of both action and pathology or, moreover, provides interventions that are relatively benign compared to the side-effect profile related to most drugs used to treat mental illness.
