Gut – Brain Connection

With the world becoming more toxic and stress levels on the rise over the last 20 years we have seen a huge rise in our clinics of patients with gut problems such as IBS, bloating, constipation, gas, diarrhoea, heart burn etc. Over the last 5 years we have also seen a huge spike in patients now also experiencing mood disorders, depression, anxiety etc, often related to their gut.

There is a network of around 100 million neurons lining our gut that is so extensive some scientists have nicknamed it our “second brain”. This multitude of neurons is called the enteric nervous system and has more neutrons than our peripheral nervous system and produces more serotonin (our happy hormone) than our actual brain. This is why the gut – brain connection is key in maintaining good health and preventing disease.

Dr Simoné in response to this clinical observation and based on her latest research, developed her own gut healing protocol that works on the brain through hormones and neurotransmitters that send messages to the gut. The chemical messages that pass between the gut and the brain can be affected by the bacteria, viruses, and fungi that live in the gut called the “gut microbiome” an the mechanical function of the gut too. Our gut – brain protocol is for patients who have gut and or brain issues who feel they are not digesting their food and or emotions like they used to.

The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion and anger, anxiety, sadness etc can all trigger symptoms in the gut. As always we use our Rejuv 3 R’s to remove all the toxins putting stress on this system, rebuild the good bacteria and gut function and restore the micro biome which not only heals all IBS symptoms but also greatly affects mood and stress levels, making your everyday life fee so much easier and more enjoyable.
