Dietician Presentation. Brain-Gut Connection: Exploring How the Gut and Brain Communicate and the Impact on Nutrition.
The gut-brain connection is no joke. It can link anxiety to stomach problems and vice versa. Have you ever had a "gut-wrenching" experience? Do certain situations make you "feel nauseous"? Have you ever felt "butterflies" in your stomach? We use these expressions for a reason. The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion. Anger, anxiety, sadness, elation — all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut. The microbes in the gut play a significant role in human body function and your nutrition. The gut microbiome is responsible for everyday functions, including digestion and the nutrient absorption.
