The brain in the Gut has important role in human happiness and misery, it modulates our feelings, moods, reactions and some behaviors.
The digestive process creates energy for maintenance and repairs our body and eliminates waste and toxins.
Ancient cultures had expression "think from the stomach" but only recently science accepted the gut as second brain, known as the enteric nervous system located in the tissue lining the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.
About 75% of the immune system is located in the gut; 90 - 95% of serotonin is in the gut, 2/3 of neurotransmitters are produced in the gut. Digestive tract connects to every major system of our body and influences hormone metabolism, cholesterol regulation, chemical and toxin elimination, brain function, energy production and absorption of nutrients.
So, good digestion, good bacteria, levels of stomach acid and healthy bile affect how you feel, think and behave and can naturally heal depression, autoimmune disease, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue, sugar and carbohydrate cravings, dementia, minimizing food sensitivities, gas, bloating, and reducing risk of diabetes, cancer, autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's.
If gut can not absorb nutrients effectively and convert them into vital brain chemicals production of serotonin and other important neurotransmitters will be impaired. So, indigestion, leaky gut and silent infections lead to mood disorders - anxiety, depression, and neurological and psychological disorders, cognitive dysfunction, weight loss resistance
Indigestion or dyspepsia is a very common.
The problem arises due to improper secretion of the digestive juices that take care of breaking down the food before it can be absorbed but the causes are many:
1.Repeated use of antibiotics.
2.Depleted, disturbed stomach and intestinal flora (healthy bacteria).
3.Insufficient intake/production of prebiotics, probiotics and enzymes.
4.Tiredness, physical exhaustion.
5.Insufficient sleep over longer period of time.
6.Inappropriate, incomplete food intake of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other.
7.Toxic deposits in body organs, liver, kidneys, lymph, and heavy metals deposits.
8.Parasites and micro-parasites, leaky gut.
9.Indigestion can occur because of too much of spicy or fatty foods.
10.Overeating - the stomach can not handle large quantities of food.
