No one is immune from the occasional stomach ache. However, prolonged or irregular issues with your gut and stomach could be the the start of serious digestive problems. Did you know that the health of your gut has as huge impact on your brain too?
Stomach issues that go untreated can wreak havoc on your brain and also your entire body. Some unchecked chronic stomach pains can typically mean you have a bacterial infection, parasite, fungal overgrowth, undiagnosed food intolerance or serious food allergy. This means your body may be inflamed on a regular basis.
Interestingly enough, an unhealthy gut is often linked to a poorly functioning brain because of the gut-brain axis. The brain receives and sends messages to the gut via Vagus nerve. The Vagus nerve originates from the brain stem and connects to many organs of the body, one of them being the gastrointestinal tract.
As brain health declines, the communication between with your gastrointestinal system often suffers as a result. When the gut is not getting the proper signalling it needs from the brain and digestion declines. Did you know your gut is often referred to as the second brain?
Symptoms of a weak gut-brain connection could range from:
- Stomach ache and brain fog
- Bloating and forgetfulness
- Constipation and sleepless nights
- Heartburn and headaches
