Nourishing the brain | Gemi Bertran

Nourishing the brain | Gemi Bertran

When something is under a lot of stress, that something tends to break. The same thing can happen with the human body--and that’s exactly what happened with Gemi Bertran. Working full-time as a single mother and a full-time student, Gemi was under a tremendous amount of stress. “My brain broke,” she says. “My body wasn’t following the orders I was giving it.” Doctors couldn’t figure out what was happening to her either. As a result, Gemi turned to researching on her own. She started studying the brain, its behavior, its neural pathways, and ultimately how to work, live life and manage stress. Listen in!
