The gastrointestinal (GI) system – or gut – is essential to optimum health. Sometimes imbalances in the gut lead to other symptoms in the nervous system, immune system, and skin.
The gut is known as “the second brain” of the body and houses the enteric nervous system which is responsible for managing the entire digestive process from beginning to end. The gut is in constant communication with the brain. When you are stressed, fearful, or nervous your brain notifies the gut which can lead to abdominal symptoms. The gut lining is also host to more immune cells than anywhere else in the body and plays a major role in defending you from germs, bacteria and viruses.
