MHAE is a UAE based mental health and wellness initiative, with the aim to create awareness and provide a safe space as well as access to information and resources. Follow us on our Instagram and check out our website.
This week on Mental Health AE, we bring back a familiar voice to the platform. Our very own Nokhez Usama talks (extensively) on the fascinating topic of fasting and its impact on gut health, neuro health and cognitive functioning. She dives into how fasting may help balance the gut bacteria and reduce stress and help mechanisms which facilitate repair and aintiinflammation. Lots of big words, words we even spell out. But join us as we talk about the research on fasting, its profound effects on our body and brain, and how you may best be able to make the most out of your fasts this ramadan.
