Our Second Brain
About 90 percent of the fibers in the primary visceral nerve, the vagus, carry information from the gut to the brain and not the other way around; in fact 95 percent of the body's serotonin is found in the intestines.
.

# Do you mean that the gut is a second brain ?

We have a real brain inside our guts , and neuronal function is very similar to the brain activity of the head. The digestive system has an extensive network of neurons, which lies between the two muscle layers of the walls . The structure of digestive neurons is fully identical to the structure of the brain cells and have the capacity to release the same neurotransmitters , hormones, and chemical molecules. I refer to the enteric nervous system ( ENS ) or our second brain. It is not a metaphor , it's an official term accepted by the medical society.

# How to stimulate the " gut brain " for us?

Intestinal your brain releases chemicals such as , for example , serotonin ( the happiness hormone famous and well-being ) in response to nutrition and healthy digestion. Know that serotonin occurs not only in the brain but, on the contrary, the major part of it ( 90% ) is released in the intestines . If we feed good, varied and a proportional contribution of all nutrients , if we have healthy eating habits ( slowly , chew well and not distract ) the digestive system responds to us and we thank him with a sense of well being , giving us a good supply of energy, vitality and optimism.
Moreover, digestive neurons also are stimulated with abdominal breathing techniques , stretching, gentle massage of the gut, and soft, soothing heat applied to the area of the belly.

# To what extent is important abdominal proper hygiene, so it can do its job well?

Most important is the balance between the input of food and swallow all substances and the discharge of all wastes and by-products of bacterial cell function itself and we have to drive . If you are overfed or if we eat too many foods dubious about their nutritional quality of this mode and trastornamos easily saturate our internal pipeline. If for some reason pathological or functional digestion and / or intestinal transit is slow and not completely, then we are accumulations of waste within us and can come to a toxic overload or autointoxication , the latter is manifested in many forms has different faces and symptoms. Of course , cleanliness is important , practice is an internal debugging a "guarantee " to avoid raising the risk of developing many diseases and an opportunity for your body to increase performance , energy and have a higher nutritional value .

# How to maintain intestinal health in a natural way , in our habits of daily life ?

With proper digestive health : respecting the signals the body sends us , not suppress natural needs to go to the bathroom or in a hurry to do so. Create a ritual and try to repeat every day, around the same times , calmly and well enough to empty belly and feel light and clean inside time. Insist , repeat and keep training your body to respond to your ritual and create a strong conditioned reflex . In addition , I recommend drinking 2 liters of fluid a day , eat at least 400 g of mixed vegetables each day, not to mention legumes ( 2-3 times per week , at least 200 g in each shot ) , consume fermented products ( kefir sauerkraut ) , three doses of fruit a day , mixed nuts , at least 30 g per day. And if you can not meet these recommended daily amounts , perhaps you should take a natural fiber supplements.
It occasionally (one day per month or per week ) to accelerate intestinal transit taking your own much prune juice , kiwis or kefir and / or magnesium supplements , and with that you can ensure a more thorough cleaning.

# How to eat ?

Savoring and appreciating the process, slowly , chewing , analyze the tastes and textures of food , do not eat "meanwhile" (while we do this or that ) , not distract our attention with other concurrent activities , like watching TV or read the newspaper .

# How to Think ? How should be a personal attitude that benefits the functioning of the intestines and the body in general?

We all know that stress , anxiety , emotional stress , Digestive , many people somatization psychological problems and has strong and varied digestive discomfort. Thoughts can trigger a binge or a cut of digestion and / or appetite . A central nervous system that is not under emotional pressure or chronic stress, and receiving adequate breaks and rest periods , offers a good digestive system function . In my book Pure Health describe various rituals and techniques that help synchronize and balance our two brain and benefit from their performances and potential .

# How to get around ? How should be adequate physical activity ?

Regularly. Most likes our body is predictability and regularity. With a rhythmic, repetitive physical activity, the body will thank you and give you a magnificent being. They have no value and are healthy both sporadic and sudden physical activities as they do have a standardized and incorporated firmly exercise to your routine . The movements and stretching , although very simple and short in time ( at first, until you enter the routine and a taste for them and dedicate more time ) , if done every day and hours assigned , you activate all vital systems and will ensure well-being in the short and long term.

# How to tell if your digestive system is in good shape ?

You have to know how to listen . Symptoms such as heartburn , heartburn , reflux , heaviness , swelling , pain, too much gas , irregular bowel transit , nausea , etc. , are forms of expression , is the digestive language , notice that something is wrong. Then you have to pay attention and watch carefully and patiently your digestive system : why and when you appear those annoying ( with what kind of food or in what situation ) and try to correct it. What often happens is that people get used to living with bloating or diarrhea ( or the opposite ) or think is normal or embarrassing, or your digestion is so delicate , without trying to find the correct answers and the quality of their digestive function.

# Which can mean the sounds in the digestive system?

Many things are normally gases and liquids move through the digestive tract through the visceral muscle movements . We can have or accumulate too much gas and / or waste residues , and / or have altered our digestive muscle function. There is pathological rather functional, but if it becomes annoying and painful , in that case recommend to watch you and record everything and then go see a specialist.

# How can an environment affect too much acid in the digestive system?

The healthy body usually balance and control the pH (the acidity parameter ) of its tissues and its environment. Excessive acidification in the stomach for example, can be caused by bacteria / infections, inflammatory processes or abuse " acidifying " foods such as carbohydrates and sweets, for example, or soda. Acidifying the contents of the large intestine can be caused by an imbalance of intestinal microflora , bacterial overgrowth and / or aggressive fungus and poor nutrition. Again, the key is the power and observing itself.

# How to rebalance ?

Rule out infection or an inflammatory process, requiring treatment with specialists. Ritual purification , green smoothies , adequate intake of vegetables and fruits , water, alkalizing mineral supplements and probiotics.
