Science is finding more and more evidence that proves our bodies are complex, interconnected ecosystems. What happens in one area often affects what happens in others.
Take the gut-brain connection, for example.
On some level, we’ve known about this link for a while. It turns up in our language when we talk about having ‘butterflies in our stomachs’ or a ‘gut feeling’ about something. And Hippocrates – the ancient Greek dude who gave his name to the oath that doctors take today – allegedly claimed that “all disease begins in the gut”.
Over the past decade or two though, science has started to catch up. And now it’s fairly well established that your gut and brain are best mates. What happens in your gut has a HUGE impact on what happens in your brain – and vice versa.
And you might not be aware just how deep their relationship goes…
