Our Gut, is our second Brain, It has many nerve endings that respond to stress and emotional energy. Often our Gut, will reflect our emotional stress and what we are unable to ‘digest’ emotionally.
“A primal connection exists between our brain and our gut. We often talk about a “gut feeling” when we meet someone for the first time. We’re told to “trust our gut instinct” when making a difficult decision or that it’s “gut check time” when faced with a situation that tests our nerve and determination. This mind-gut connection is not just metaphorical. Our brain and gut are connected by an extensive network of neurons. It is an information superhighway called the brain-gut axis and it provides constant updates on the state of affairs at your two ends. That sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach after looking at your post holiday credit card bill is a vivid example of the brain-gut connection at work. You’re stressed and your gut knows it—immediately. From The Good Gut: Taking Control of Your Weight, Your Mood and Your Long-Term Health, by Justin Sonnenburg and Erica Sonnenburg, PhDs.
