Stress Wreaks Havoc

Did you know that you have two brains; one inside your skull and one in your gut? During fetal development one part turns into your central nervous system while the other develops into your enteric nervous system. The two systems are connected via the vagus nerve, the 10th cranial nerve that runs from the brain stem down to your abdomen. This “brain-gut axis” is what connects the two together and explains the butterflies in the stomach feeling.
