Link Between Gut Health And Stress

Have you ever experienced butterflies in your stomach when you are going for an exam or interview? These butterflies are signs that there is a direct connection between the stomach and our brain. When we have stressed it affects our stomachs too.

Recently Science has also proven this. Both Brain and the Gut share the same neurotransmitter.  So gut is also called our second brain.

When we’re stressed, our brain activates the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is our flight-or-fight response: it prepares the body to protect itself against imminent danger by conserving functions that aren’t immediately needed for survival. That includes digestion. The emptying of the stomach is delayed, which can lead to a stomach ache, indigestion, heartburn, and nausea.

My Experience

I have seen many patients who are taking pills for depression also complain of constipation Diarrhea or Bloating. These all things show that there is too much stress in your mind which is showing up through your gut. In short, we can say that your gut health is the mirror of your brain. So I start working on stress management. Because I know both things are interconnected

In today’s vast life stress can't be avoided but you can learn how to manage this stress.

Here in this blog, I am going to share some tips through which you can manage your stress.

Eating Behaviour

There is much truth behind the phrase "stress eating." Stress, the hormones it unleashes, and the effects of high-fat, sugary "comfort foods" push people toward overeating

Research also shows connections between stress and food. People tend to seek high-calorie, high-fat foods during periods of stress, though, when people are stressed, their bodies store more fat than when they are relaxed.

To help stop stress  eating, try these tips:

  • Have a hunger reality check. ..
  • Get support. ...
  • Fight boredom. ...
  • Take away temptation. ...
  • Don't deprive yourself. ...
  • Snack healthy.
  • Maintain Food Dairy

Social Interaction

Friends, family, and other sources of social support seem to have a buffering effect on the stress that people experience. For example, research suggests that people working in stressful situations, like hospital emergency departments, have better mental health if they have adequate social support. But even people who live and work in situations where the stakes aren't as high need help from time to time from friends and family
