Gut-brain connection, eating affects brain, nutrition and brain function, gut feelings, gut reactionsHave you ever had a “gut” feeling about something or someone? Some people may call it intuition, which it very well may be; but there is also actual science behind that “gut” feeling.   Harvard Health Publications (2013) wrote an article on a study proving that there is a definite, strong  connection between our gut and our brain.

By eating healthfully and giving your body the right nutrients you can actually improve your brain function. From personal experience, as a hypnotherapist with my clients, many of them, with their doctors’ supervision, have been able to diminish and/or eliminate some of their brain-altering medications through proper diet, nutrition, mindfulness and positive thinking.

Your gut also sends the message to your brain that you are satisfied or full. It takes 20 minutes or more for the gut to communicate that message to the brain. That’s why eating slowly and chewing your food well is not only good for your digestion, but it allows you to eat until you are just satisfied and not to overindulge.

Did you know that we have neurotransmitters in our “gut,” just as we do in our brains? In an article by Scientific American (2010), Michael Gershon refers to the gut as the “second brain” which contains “100 million neurons, more than in either the spinal cord or the peripheral nervous system.”

Hopefully, knowing this will make you want to stop and think about what you are feeding your gut!  It’s so important to be mindful of the thoughts you think and the foods and beverages you drink every day!

Here’s to the health of your mind and body!
