Your gut is your second brain!

Gut instinct is real – our guts are full of brain like neurons and neurotransmitters, and it really can help influence our judgement. Primarily this second ‘brain’ managed the digestive system independently, however it is in constant communication with the brain in our skull. This is an area of medical science that is ever evolving, but think about that feeling of ‘butterflies’ in your tummy when you are anticipating something or of being ‘sick to your stomach’ when something doesn’t work out – that is your second brain speaking up and it is why anxiety, nerves and even depression can be managed through good gut health.

 Your gut is affected by the toxic environment in which we live…

“All disease begins in the Gut”

A famous quote attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates nearly 2500 years ago – he wasn’t wrong! Everything we eat or drink or expose ourselves to either feeds disease or fights it. Our digestive tract forms a defensive barrier and will prevent harmful substances from reaching the bloodstream. If this barrier is compromised, then harmful substances can get past, and inflammation could occur causing disease.
