"There is a voice that doesn't use words. Listen." Rumi
I always trust my gut, after all, folk more intelligent than myself consider the gut to be our second brain. If I am stressed I, unfortunately, get the poops – don't judge please let me explain.
I have read that scientists have found that our gut and brain are co-dependent, share information, and are made of the same structural and chemical materials.
I have a comfortably expansive gut, so I wonder if that makes me a genius!
It is thought that our gut health can affect our moods. That makes sense as our gut makes over 90% of our Serotonin, WOW that info blows both my minds! Whilst serotonin in our guts can not cross the blood/brain barrier it does support how we process our food. People with low levels can suffer from constipation, whilst high levels can cause diarrhoea, now having either of these would affect anyone's mood!
If you get the feeling (or the poops) that something, someone, or a situation isn't quite right, but don't have the rational backup evidence, or have time to consider every angle then why not trust your gut! Your first 'feels' (poops) are often proven to be right………….
Please look after your gut and I bet in turn it will look after you!
