We all have them and they are usually right. But why do we feel so much in our stomach?
Neuroscientist Candace Pert, Ph.D. ‘discovered that specific brain chemicals – usually called neuropeptides – acted as couriers between the mind and the immune system.’ The Healing Power of Sound - Mitchell L. Gaynor, M.D.
In other words, Pert discovered our thoughts, feelings and our biological healing system are intricately linked. Therefore, our bodies hold our thoughts, our stress and traumas, our every emotion and they travel through our bloodstreams. As our intestines are filled with neuropeptide receptors, it should therefore be no wonder our ‘gut feelings’ are so intuitive and clear to us. So, next time you have a strong feeling about something in your tummy, pay attention to it, it may be affecting your health.
