Life with a narcissist can be extremely stressful, leading to depression or anxiety. It canalso make you physically sickYou may feel it in the pit of your stomach. This isn’t surprising, as stress and dismay are often coupled with a gut disturbance.

Research over the past decade has shown that there are multiple links between these microbes and your brain.

Neurotransmitters like serotonin or dopamine are the traditional targets of drugs that treat depression and anxiety.
