Stress and the Gut Brain Connection

Have you ever felt nauseous when you’ve been worried about something? Or had “butterflies” in your stomach when nervous? The gut brain connection is very real.

The brain sends SIGNALS to the gut that produces these physical symptoms.

Scientists are discovering that it goes the other way too —😳 when your gut is inflamed or imbalanced, it sends a signal to your brain. You then feel #stressed or #anxious or #depressed. It turns out that your gut and your brain are constantly talking to one another. #gutbrainconnection

Stress is bad news for the brain-gut axis🧠, and stress signals trigger the release of neurotransmitters and molecules that contribute to inflammation and disease, which affect the gut in all kinds of ways.

STRESS can increase the intestines permeability causing #leakygut which leads to fatigue, inflammation, food intolerances/allergies and then autoimmune issues if not addressed.

•An imbalance in your gut bacteria #dysbiosis

•Decreased blood flow and oxygenation to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract

Your goal is to control your stress (exercise, being outdoors, praying) which in turn will calm your gut. It goes the other way too. By fixing your gut, you’ll feel less stressed.
