🧐 Pay attention to your gut-brain connection β€” it may contribute to your anxiety and digestion problems.⁣⁣

😝 The gut-brain connection is no joke; it can link anxiety to stomach problems and vice versa. The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion. Anger, anxiety, sadness, elation β€” all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut. ⁣⁣

🧠 The brain has a direct effect on the stomach and intestines. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. This connection goes both ways. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. ⁣⁣

😒 Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected.⁣⁣

πŸ˜– This is especially true in cases where a person experiences gastrointestinal upset with no obvious physical cause. For such functional GI disorders, it is difficult to try to heal a distressed gut without considering the role of stress and emotion.⁣⁣

😰 Are your stomach or intestinal problems β€” such as bloating, heartburn, abdominal cramps, or loose stools β€” related to stress?⁣⁣
