Do I have a second-brain?
The answer to that question, is yes. One of the systems that I start with and I believe to be the most important is the digestive system. Have you ever heard of "Go with your gut feeling" or "I have butterflies in my stomach"? That is because the gastrointestinal tract is lined with more than 100 million nerve cells, there are more nerves
in the GI tract than anywhere else in the body, except for the brain. This is why some individuals will say that you have a "second-brain", there is a brain-gut connection. What happens in your stomach has an effect on your brain and visa versa. Our bodies are an integrated system, all parts are connected and depend on each other to be functioning at their best. Maintaining a balance within your body allows you to perform at your best.
