Autonomic Nervous System:

In this video, we’re going to talk about the important relationship between your brain and your gut.

Your brain and gut interact bidirectionally. This means that there are nerve signals that go from your gut to your brain and from your brain to your gut.

There are two primary parts of your autonomic nervous system: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Your sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the “fight or flight” state, while your parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for the “rest and digest” state.

The vagus nerve that comes from the brain stem down into the gut is a part of the parasympathetic nervous system.

However, there’s a third part of the autonomic nervous system that I rarely talk about called the enteric nervous system.

There are more nerves in your enteric nervous system than there are in your spinal column.

So if there’s anything going on in your gut, signals are sent to your brain. This can cause unexpected symptoms such as:
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Stress
• Schizophrenia
• And other altered emotion states

Anything going on in the brain (like stress) can cause issues in your gut, including:
• Nausea
• Heartburn
• Diarrhea
• Constipation
• Cramps
• Ulcers

The enteric nervous system is also involved in about 30 neurotransmitters. 90% of serotonin is created in the gut.

Your overall gut health is very important for your mental health.

21% of IBD cases are linked to cases of depression.

This shows just how important it is to get plenty of natural probiotics are prebiotics in your diet, such as:
• Kefir
• Sauerkraut
• Kimchi
• Apple cider vinegar

Studies show that taking probiotic supplements can also improve your mood.
