Our gut contains over one hundred million neurons. Neurons are the same cells that are found in the brain except the neurons that are found in the gut are spread out all the way from your throat to your rectum.
It’s almost like having two brains and it is important to understand that your gut neurons are always interacting with your brain neurons, they are constantly communicating with each other.
So, if your gut, (your digestive system) is not healthy, then this impacts your mood and energy levels.
If your mind is under attack due to stress, anger, anxiety or depression, signals will be automatically fast tracked to theneurons in your gut, activating a whole host of stress hormones and triggering symptoms of IBS such as cramping, bloating and diarrhoea.
When you think about it, our brain, our gut, every cell in our body is like an entire eco-system, and we all know how easy it is to upset an eco-system, so it is vital to strike a healthy balance between brain and gut, and we can do this by taking steps to improve our mental health. Of course, we all have mental health, but it’s that crucial difference between having good mental health or poor mental health that will ultimately impact our gut and our immune system in either a good way or a negative way.
