Second brain in our stomachs

Did you know that we have brain cells in our gut? A collection of nerve cells work together and communicate in our belly, much as the neurons in our brain do.

This is why your stomach is sensitive to emotion. It can churn, feel nauseous, have ‘butterflies’, or some experiences can be gut wrenching. It is worth bearing this in mind when you are suffering with gastrointestinal disorders that appear to have no obvious physical or infectious cause.
