Listen To Your Gut – Your Second Brain
Scientists are now referring to our gut as our second brain or the enteric nervous system (ENS).

The ENS consist of more than 100 million nerve cells lining our GI tract. While the ENS doesn’t seem capable of thought as we know it, researchers are finding that it communicates back and forth with our big brain – with profound results. These results are revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health and even the way you think.

Listen to your gut. Your nervous system and your gut may be wired to react to certain foods, and you may feel better if you avoid them. If you have ever come back after lunch and felt tired, nauseous, or a little “fuzzy”, your ENS system may be reacting to something you ate – and sending signals to your brain.
