“Have you ever had a “gut-wrenching” experience? Do certain situations make you “feel nauseous”? Have you ever felt “butterflies” in your stomach? We use these expressions for a reason. The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion. Anger, anxiety, sadness, elation — all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut.” (Havard Heallth)
When our journey into natural healthy started we learned that many of our daughters issues and mine could be helped with healing our guts. Many people do not know that there is a huge connection with our gut and our brain. Thus, many neurological, focus, brain fog, behavior, as well as physical issues can stem from an unhealthy gut.
With the way our food is now a days and the overuse of antibiotics most of our guts are in need of major repair if not total rebuild! At the Health Conference Dr. Rob Lindsey will be teaching on the gut brain connection and how to identify if this may be an issue for you or your child as well as what to do to bring healing!
“The brain has a direct effect on the stomach. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. This connection goes both ways. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause orthe product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected — so intimately that they should be viewed as one system.
This is especially true in cases where a person experiences gastrointestinal upset with no obvious physical cause. For such functional GI disorders, it is difficult to try to heal a distressed gut without considering the role of stress and emotion..” (Harvard Health)
