Your Brain & Gut - In Close Communiction

If you’ve ever “gone with your gut” to make a decision or felt “butterflies in your stomach” when nervous, you’re likely getting signals from an unexpected source: your second brain.  Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this “brain in your gut” is revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health and even the way you think.


The foods you eat matter. Most diseases and essentially all chronic diseases stem from a lack of nutrition. We get enough calories but we aren't getting sufficient nutrients - that is the definition of malnutrition. Your gut, if not fed properly, is the start of malnutrition. Start by chewing your food. The enzymes released in your mouth start the digestion process as does thorough mastication.

Choose your food with care - you and your health are worth it. Eat a balanced diet including foods that feed your gut, for the sake of your brain, including your gut microbiome (beneficial bacteria in your gut). Pro- and Pre-biotic foods must be eaten regularly. Also, consume food that reduces inflammation, is easy to digest, and destroys pathogens (bad bacteria, mold, virus, and other microbes).
