New study finds that anxiety may originate in your gut, not in your head

(The Best Years in Life) We're all familiar with the term "gut feeling". As it turns out, the term may be more apt than we realize. In recent years, research has increasingly identified the role the gut can have on mood and behavior, leading many scientists to refer to the gut as the "second brain". Now, for the first time, researchers have found conclusive evidence that conditions such as anxiety can originate in the gut instead of the brain.

Thanks for posting this

This is really important. I have been studying gut bacteria for years. Their role in the human body is incredible. They affect the immune system so much and poor gut health promotes autoimmune diseases and poor immune response. This is more interesting information about their role. Also Serotonin levels are very high in the gut and so the gut does play a significant role in our emotional response. Think about your initial emotional response to something. It happens in the gut.
