When a Gut Feeling makes you feel unwell

Brain & Gut Connection

Brain & Gut Connection

Our emotions play a big role in gastro intestinal disorders and much research has been done over the connection between the brain and gut and how closely they interact with each other. We’ve all experienced that feeling of butterflies in our stomach when we are excited or apprehensive about a certain situation, this is because a big part of our emotions are more than likely influenced by the nerves in our gut.  Our brain and gut are communicating with each other all the time.

Given how closely the gut and brain interact, it has become clear that emotional and psychosocial factors can trigger symptoms in the gut. This is especially true in cases when the gut is acting up and there’s no obvious physical cause for example with symptoms of IBS, Chrohns, Colitis.

If you have IBS then you will be familiar with the symptoms that can sometimes make your life a misery. The symptoms range from abdominal cramps, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation.

As a homeopath when I treat someone with IBS or any gastro intestinal disorder, I discuss everything with you; when your symptoms are worse, if anything makes them better and together we look at triggers, diet, lifestyle or things that have happened to you in the past and any history of taking anti-biotics.

I then work on your case to find a remedy based on you as a person and your IBS symptoms. By taking this approach and trying to find the root cause it is my aim to help improve your symptoms.
