The connection between the brain and the gut is a two-way street called the gut-brain axis. The brain controls the gut, but the gut also affects the brain.
The colon is situated at the solar plexus, the emotional center of the body and is more sensitive than the face in reaction to emotions!
There is a complicated relationship between your brain and your belly....
- 95% of the SEROTONIN (which is both a neurotransmitter and a hormone) is produced in your digestive track and manufactured by the gut bacteria from an amino acid derived from the foods we eat.
- Serotonin influences the functioning of the cardiovascular, immune, renal systems and GI activity.
- Serotonin regulates aggression, appetite, cognition, mood, sexual behavior, and even sleep. It impacts our memory, mental clarity, mood, and the foods we crave.
( It plays a crucial role in developing our forebrain, which process our emotions. Serotonin also enhances the growth of new neurons in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that enables us to have new experiences and learn from them.)
- Serotonin, the "happiness hormone" is chemically similar to DMT, the "spirit molecule", allowing us to access higher states of consciousness & awareness.
To take your health to the next level you must balance your gut bacteria by incorporating a healthy whole food diet with a lots of greens (no process or package food), good quality protein and take good quality probiotics if necessary, manage your stress level and make sure to eliminate all toxins and chemicals from your body.
It’s where colonics play a crucial role in balancing your gut flora and enhancing your serotonin level. Removing toxins and waste from your colon allows a better growth of the good bacteria, meaning a better production and absorption of the feel good hormones!
You may have heard that colonics flush out the good bacterias but taking a shower doesn't remove the bacterias protecting your skin!!! The opposite happens, water helps maintain balance and prevent the growth of the bad bacteria by removing the dirt on your skin.
What could be more natural than water to help you remove any build up in your colon?
