KTEP's Tummy Doctor, Dr. Richard McCallum, is joined by Sandra Vexler from the Department of Psychiatry at Texas Tech University Health Science Center at El Paso, to talk about the relationship between our gut and our mental health.  They talk about fascinating studies into fecal transplants which hint that transplanting healthy microbiota into the digestive tracts of unhealthy individuals leads to recovery and possibly improved mental health.
