Have you ever had to “go with your gut” to make a decision Do certain moments or people make you feel “off” Have you ever felt “butterflies” in your stomach There’s a perfectly good explanation as to why The Brain/Gut Connection Hidden in the walls of your digestive system is the “brain in your gut”. Scientists call this little brain the Enteric Nervous System ENS. It is revolutionizing the understanding of the links between digestion mood health and even the way you think The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum The brain also has a direct effect on the stomach and intestines. For example the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. The connection goes both ways Website - ​https://calgarymenopause.com/ ​ Ph. No. 403 456-0287

What does your Gut’s Brain control The Gut’s Brain main role is controlling digestion. From swallowing to the release of enzymes that break down food to the control of blood flow that helps with nutrient absorption to elimination. The ENS doesn’t seem capable of thought but it communicates back and forth with our brain with amazing results It may trigger big emotional shifts in people coping with IBS constipation diarrhea bloating pain and stomach upset. For decades researchers and doctors thought that anxiety and depression contributed to these problems but now studies show that it may also be the other way around. Researchers are finding evidence that irritation in the gastrointestinal system may send signals to the central nervous system CNS that trigger mood changes. Understanding your Gut Health Our two brains ‘talk’ to each other so therapies that help one may help the other. Have you heard the saying “We are what we eat” or “Food is a drug” Diet water intake and exercise are now being investigated more before prescribing antidepressants for mental health. More mental health practitioners and therapists are being recommended to help with gut health over prescriptions or over the counter drugs. Even as simple as knowing your blood type could help eliminate problematic foods ​that trigger gut problems. Research shows certain foods affect your gut due to your blood type and is being used as an avenue of gut health relief What can you do to help your Gut/Brain connection 1. Eat healthy What you put in you affects you mentally physically and emotionally. When you put fast food and processed food into you constantly it will make you feel sluggish tired unmotivated and even depressed. Website - ​https://calgarymenopause.com/ ​ Ph. No. 403 456-0287

2. Drink your water Water helps filter and flush so many toxins that we have in our bodies. When our body doesn’t receive enough water the first place it pulls water from is the gut Without water our second Brain can’t function or think properly 3. Exercise Without movement there’s no movement down there. Pretty simple What we put in our bodies we receive out of it. Like a savings account the more we put into it we will see and receive.
