The Gut and Brain Connection

0 2 years ago

We never really stop to think about the ways our gut and brain compliment one another. Let’s take a dive towards a better understanding on how these two powerhouses of the body operate together.

So what is the gut-brain connection? The gut and brain are physically linked through millions of nerves. Moreover, your intestines and its microbes manage inflammation and create various compounds that can influence brain health.

An unsettled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a discomposed brain can send signals to the gut. It is evident that an individual’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the result of stress, anxiety or depression.

If this information is resonating, you may be asking yourself – How can I restore my gut brain connection?

The answer- A lifestyle adjustment!

Self care tools such meditation, breathing exercises, mindfulness and yoga have all been shown to enhance mood, decrease anxiety and reduce gastrointestinal symptoms.
