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 patients with gut problems such as IBS, bloating, constipation, gas, diarrhoea and heartburn*. Over the last 5 years, we have also seen a huge spike in patients now also experiencing mood disorders, depression, and anxiety, 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 neurons 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.

In response to this clinical observation and based on her latest research, Dr Simoné 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” and the mechanical function of the gut too.

The Rejuv gut-brain protocol is for patients who have gut and/or brain issues who feel they are not digesting their food or dealing with their emotions.

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

The products used in the Gut-Brain Protocol and at the Rejuv Retreats are available in a heavily discounted Gut-Brain Reset pack in our online shop (includes the protocol).
