Your Gut is the Seat of Your Intuition too!

We all know that your gut assists with the functions of digesting food and elimination of waste. However, what if I mentioned that your gut is your second brain too!

The gut provides information to the brain, while the brain helps us decide what, when, how much, and how fast to eat and drink. The gut and brain work together in the digestive process.

For example, when we have had a particularly fatty meal, the gut and brain will talk and decide to hold that food in the stomach a little longer than for a lighter meal. Only when the food has been broken down sufficiently will it be sent to the small intestine.

Both the brain and gut play key roles in our stress level, and our mood or state of mind. The gut may inform the brain of a stressor, and the brain will do the same for the gut.

Not only is the gut filled with nerve cells that receive and provide information to the brain, but the gut also produces more than 90% of the body’s serotonin – The “Happy” hormone that helps regulate our mood or emotions.

In our next class we delve further into this NON DIGESTIVE aspect of our GUT and how we can tap into unlocking the INTUITIVE POWER of our Gut.
