What is the gut-brain connection?

The gut-brain connection is the communication between the digestive tract and the brain.

The gut-brain connection has been studied by doctors of holistic medicine, such as Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who has written a book on the subject. They have found that changes in our diet can cause major changes in our mood and behavior.

This is because food is more than just fuel for our bodies to run on; it’s also information for our brains about how to feel and behave.

The gut-brain connection is the communication between the digestive system and the brain. It is a scientific fact that this connection exists, but it is not yet fully understood.

This connection has been researched for decades by scientists, doctors, and holistic medicine practitioners. What they have found out so far is that every time you eat, your brain gets information about what you are eating from your gut. This means that when we eat unhealthy foods, our brain can sense it and react in a negative way.

How are the gut and brain connected?

Your gut and brain are connected through an axis of bidirectional communication which is when there is a connection between the central ad enteric nervous systems, which link the emotional and cognitive centers of the brain with peripheral intestinal functions. There have been recent advances in research that describe the importance of gut microbiota in influencing these interactions.
 
The brain has a direct link to the gut, and psychology combined with physical factors can cause pain and other bowel symptoms to occur. Psychosocial factors may also influence the literal physiology of the gut, as well as the symptoms. Many patients that have functional GI disorders may also perceive pain more acutely than others and this is due to their brains being more responsive to the pain signals forming from the GI tract. Finally, stress can also make the pain seem a lot worse than it truly is.

Does online therapy help to improve gut-brain connections?

With the new understanding of the gut-brain connection, we are able to help explain the effect that therapy has to help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and bowel-disorder treatments, which may include mind-body therapies like medical hypnotherapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and antidepressants.
 
While there is always more research that needs to be completed to find out more information on the human gut-brain connection and to help continue to improve your overall health and wellness, understanding this connection and being able to provide effective and efficient therapies online through telehealth to all patients is significantly improved than previous years with no understanding at all.
