The gut is not just a vital organ for digestion, it is also your second brain, or even your first brain depending on the theory that you base your argument on. However, what is less controversial about the gut, thanks to decades of scientific evidence, is that it has its own nervous system that is different from the central and periphery nervous system. This means that your gut thinks, feels, talks and even generate its own complex movements (obviously). Over 80% of the communication between the cranial brain (head brain) and the gut brain is bottom-up (from the gut to the brain). In other words, your gut has a lot to say about your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing that you should be aware of. In this 60 seconds clip, I share how to optimise your gut brain for happiness and wellness.
