Explaining the Gut and Brain connection

Explaining the Gut and Brain connection

When we experience intense emotions, we often feel it in our gut. Everyone at some point has felt ‘butterflies in the stomach when we’re anxious or stressed. Something that really upsets us can be ‘gut-wrenching’. Our body has a physical reaction to our emotional state. There’s growing research that gastrointestinal health also impacts our mental health. And that has big implications for how we think about and manage mental health conditions. Experiment with eating a diet that’s free of processed food and sugar that contribute to inflammation and monitor how your body responds. Once you identify the major culprits, slowly reintroduce other foods back into your diet. Many people have found that by transforming what they eat, they also see positive changes in their moods.
