Brain Impacts Gut - Gut Impacts Brain - The Enteric Nervous System and our Second Brain

Friday, May 06, 2016



Whoooo! Happy Friday Everyone! Man...I never thought I could feel so Excited to Learn about Gut Bacteria but By Golly...All of this Learning is Really Making my Energy Grow!

Let's just Refresh our Memories for a minute to catch up to where we are Now.

A week or so ago...We were on one of our Sherlock Holmes Quests...Searching out and Tracking Down Clues...(as we are now...I hope you have your Awesome Hat and Looking Glass Ready!) and we stumbled across a few things...One of them that we have not looked into til Today is The Enteric Nervous System. This is the Mind-Gut Connection. This was Fascinating stuff to Learn. WoW!

Did you know to Fix your Brain...You Need to Fix Your Gut?



Now this makes sense to me...But I have been doing this research all along...So I kind of deducted this a long while back. Here is confirmation...If you needed it.

Did you know that your Gut is Actually your Second Brain? Oh your Gut has Much more Power than you may be Aware of...but if you take some time to absorb this information...You will gain a Much Better Understanding of the Mind and Gut Connection.

Turns out these minuscule little teensey-weensey microbes are Incredibly Persuasive little suckers! So much so that your gut bacteria can change and altar your body composition. Thy can actually introduce Healthy microbes into an unhealthy gut...and it Turns Healthy...Or they can take Unhealthy microbes and cause an Unhealthy Biome in a previously Neutral environment.



Food Choices of course are the Main reason for our Gut Health and Determining the Types of Microbes we create. (Because We Do Create either a Positive Chain Reaction or a Negative Chain Reaction based according to our Food Choices...We've gone over this many times in Past Blogs. Bottom Line...Processed Foods (as little as 80 calories) causes a Negative Chain Reaction...While Choosing to Not Eat Processed Foods has a Positive Domino Effect...Read Past Blogs to get Caught-Up on this Important Piece of the Puzzle.)

This video is an hour long...but that should express how Important this System is to Understand. This is Kind of a Big Deal because we are actually talking about your Second Brain here. (Which again you can have Control of...Once you Understand it Better. Isn't that so Awesome?!?!?)

There is communication between your Gut and your Brain and it travels via the Vagus Nerve System. (You'll Learn more in this clip...of course we will look into this further in the future. We have so much to Learn!)



What you eat...Determines the messages that you are sending to your Brain...Take some time to Understand this...It seems to be a Biggie!

Now I know that some of you do not have an hour to sit around...Nor perhaps the attention span to absorb for that long yet...(because of Processed Foods...Not You.) So of course I am going to offer a few more Perspectives...and this one is much shorter...

Your Bacteria determines your mood...it can affect your Immune System...which can lead to neurological disorders...They activate your gut endocrine cells which effect your neuropeptides and your neurotransmitters...also metabolites (Oh we have so much to look into! YES! I LOVE Learning! Isn't this Great?!?!? Clues-Clues-Everywhere Clues!)




These little fellas (microbes) are So Amazing that they can Correct Core Abnormalities such as seen in Autism. (This is Not what we have been lead to Believe...Is it? This is Why it is so Important to Know For Yourself.)

Microbes can have a Direct impact on Diseases such as Autism-Depression-and Multiple Sclerosis! Microbes are relatively easy to Manipulate and even Eliminate...This means they can be Modified...and We are In Control by What/How?!?!?!

Our Food Choices!!! Right! Good Job!



Some of these cells can be Mind altering...affecting our Brain Development, Function, and Behavior. So these Lil Fellas have quite an affect on our Health and Predisposition to Diseases.

Oh But Wait...That's Not All...



I need one more video for Understanding...So...Let's see what else we can absorb, shall we?

This is 4 minutes. It can explains IBS-Acid Reflux-Heart Burn-Nausea-Abdominal Pain...Much more. Your Gut is Powerful...Have you been Listening to Yours?

What another Great Day for Absorbing Information! You are Growing Every Time You Learn Something New! Congratulations...You are Now More Knowledgeable than you were before you Clicked! Doesn't that Feel Good?

Even if you didn't pick up on everything...You Now Know there is something more to look into. Go at your Own Pace and Absorb My Friends...We are getting there One Piece of the Puzzle at a Time.



So...Does the Enteric Nervous System Have anything to do with our Emotions?

Well...If it is considered our Second Brain...and It can Determine Messages to our Brain...Which are Determined by our Food Choices and the Microbiome we Create...Either Positive or Negative Dependent Upon our Food Choices...and the Hormones that are Released as a Result...If it can Determine if we have Nerve Damage...Since Nerves Feel...and Feelings are Emotions...Hmmm...Maybe Not...But Nerves do affect our Brain and our Memory and our Cognitive Function...So I think Yup...For Sure Enteric Nervous System Makes the List!!!



Let's Update our Ever-growing List and see just How Much We Have Learned So far...

We are ALL Biologists and Psychologists by default...and We can Control Every aspect of our internal workings...Depending on our EMOTIONS. We've Learned EMOTIONS are Tied to ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING...

To give it a List...

NUTRITION
HORMONES
EPIGENETICS
NEUROPLASTICITY
EGO
SPIRIT
YOUR VIBE
LAW OF ATTRACTION
UNIVERSAL LAW OF ENERGY AND VIBRATION
LAW OF REFLECTION
PERCEPTION-PROJECTION-EXPECT
ATIONS
FREQUENCY and TONE
IMAGINAL CELLS
PSYCHONEUROIMMUNOLOGY
RETICULAR ACTIVATING SYSTEM (RAS)
QUANTUM PHYSICS - QUANTUM HEALTH
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
FACIAL FEEDBACK THEORY
BODY POSTURE THEORY
SELF PERCEPTION THEORY
ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM


And this List Just Keep Growing as I Do...as WE Do!

What is important to take away from this is that HOW YOU CHOOSE TO FEEL DICTATES YOUR REALITY.

I am So Impressed with Us! God Job Today for Seeking Out More Knowledge!

    I just skimmed, but will come back to this. I find it all fascinating. (Love that you included Bill Nye. My son worships him.)
