The state of our gut can affect our brain.
If this is not something you have heard before then it may at first sound unlikely.
But did you know that up to 70% of the neurons outside of the brain exist in the intestines.
How then can we possibly ignore our gut (and what we put in it) when we are trying to change what goes on in our brains. Like pain. Or our mental health.
It has been said that the gut is our second brain. And I for one am discovering that for myself.
I guess that's what is meant by trust your gut. Maybe we need to start paying a little more attention to how we treat it.
