IBS affects 30% of the people in the west.
Most of the people feel this is a stigma and keep quiet—they don’t feel good about farting ( constipation ) and running to the toilet for a shit ( diarrhea ) ghadi ghadi .
IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is a digestive disorder that impacts the large intestine (colon) and causes uncomfortable symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel movements.
AYURVEDA MENTIONED IN CHARAKA SAMHITA 6200 YEARS AGO THAT 85% OF DISEASES ORIGINATE IN THE GUT.
YOGA UNDERSTOOD HOW TO MANIPULATE THE VAGUS NERVE TO PROVIDE RELIEF.
SURYA NAMASKAR UNDERSTOOD HOW TO SECRETE SEROTONIN – THE MAIN OBJECTIVE
Most of the people in the west get IBS because they do chest breathing ( hyperventilation ) due to stress.
Yoga allows only DEEP DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING which simulates the Vagus nerve
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon).. IBS is a chronic condition that you will need to manage long term.
The most common symptoms of IBS are :--
Anxiety or depression
Loss of appetite
Constipation alternating with diarrhea
A belly that sticks out
Mucus in stools
Very small bowel movements
Constant craving, mainly carbohydrates
Headaches or backaches
Tightness around the waistConstant urge to go for a shit.
THE JEWS HAVE MONOPOLISED IBS AND IBD .. ALMOST ALL JEWS HAVE IBS OR IBD
IBS IS NOT IBD
Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease sound the same and are both common illnesses that affect the gut but they are both very different.
The fundamental difference between IBS and IBD is that IBD is structural, meaning there is damage to the gut whereas IBS causes gut symptoms.
IBD( Inflammatory Bowel Disease ) is characterised by the presence of inflammation in the intestine whereas IBS is caused by the dysfunction of the digestive track. IBS does not turn into IBD, but it is possible to have both conditions.
IBS is best described as a functional bowel disorder that occurs when the bowel acts in an abnormal way without signs of damage caused by disease, and all other tests are negative.
IBD is characterized by an immune-mediated inflammatory process that results in ulceration and actual inflammation in the intestine
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) includes Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis
In IBD, inflammation may occur beyond the gut to areas such as skin, joints and eyes but this does not occur in IBS.
IBS is not life-threatening, and it doesn't make you more likely to get other colon conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, or colon cancer.
But IBS can be a long-lasting problem that changes how you live your life. People with IBS may miss work or school more often, and they may feel less able to take part in daily activities
Again, while both irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease can have similar symptoms including abdominal pain, diarrhea, and urgent bowel movements; however, IBS is not the same as IBD, which is a SEVERE condition.
Irritable bowel syndrome is considered a functional gastrointestinal disorder because there is abnormal bowel function. IBS is a group of symptoms and not a disease in itself, which is why it’s called a ‘syndrome,’ and it is less serious than IBD.
Irritable bowel syndrome does not cause inflammation like inflammatory bowel disease, and it does not result in permanent damage to the intestines, intestinal bleeding, rectal bleeding, ulcers, or the harmful complications that are often seen with IBD.
IMPORTANT :-- IBS is diagnosed by exclusion, which means a doctor considers other alternatives first, performing tests to rule out other medical problems.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a "functional" disorder. This term refers to the changes in the functioning of the digestive system that results in the collection of symptoms referred to as IBS, meaning that it is a problem with the movement (motility) rather than any damage to the tissues of the digestive system.
Poorly coordinated signals between the brain and the intestines can make your body overreact to the changes that normally occur in the digestive process. This overreaction can cause pain, diarrhea or constipation.
Stimuli that don't bother other people can trigger symptoms in people with IBS — but not all people with the condition react to the same stimuli.
The walls of the intestines are lined with layers of muscle that contract and relax in a coordinated rhythm as they move food from your stomach through your intestinal tract to your rectum.
If you have irritable bowel syndrome, the contractions may be stronger and last longer than normal, causing gas, bloating and diarrhea.
Or the opposite may occur, with weak intestinal contractions slowing food passage and leading to hard, dry stools.
The west has increasing cased of IBS and poor immunity due to three reasons:-
AAA- Women going for C section delivery rather than natural delivery of babies
BBB- Women do NOT breast feed babies for 6 months
CCC- Excessive consumption of GM foods, Processed foods and A1 toxic milk
Read both parts of the post below-
No biomarker has yet been identified for IBS, so no investigation can definitively say that somebody has IBS. Rather, the disease is usually diagnosed clinically.
Treatment options are limited to management of the symptoms of IBS. Manipulation of the microbiota can influence the key symptoms, including abdominal pain and bowel habit, and other prominent features of IBS
Babies born vaginally and who are breastfed have a similar microbiome to their mom
Babies that are bottle fed and/or c-section have a different microbiome than their mom
C-Sections, no breast feeding, no skin to skin with parents, gives the baby alien microbiome which later on in life causes IBS.
Gut microbiota is known as GOOD BACTERIA.
These FRIENDLY organisms are helpful, providing assistance in digestion, boosting immunity, and helping maintain the integrity of the intestinal lining. One of the main causes of IBS ( which doctors do not understand ) is an imbalance in the gut microbiota, such as an overgrowth of certain kinds of UNFRIENDLY bacteria.
The dramatic first steps in immune system development take place at the same time the core microbiota is being formed, and the gut bacteria play a key role in that process.
In the hours and days following birth, the newly-arrived gut bacteria stimulate the newborn to produce white blood cells and other immune system components, including antibodies directed at unwelcome, disease-causing microorganisms.
The bacteria of the microbiota also “teach” the newborn’s immune system to tolerate their own presence—to differentiate bacterial friend from foe
In a cesarean birth the fledgling immune system is confronted with unfamiliar, often hostile bacteria—including Clostridium difficile, a particularly troublesome hospital-acquired bug. In addition, the healthy probiotic bacteria associated with vaginal birth (e.g., lactobacillus) arrive later and in miniscule numbers.
Given an intestinal surface area of about 2,700 square feet—more or less the size of a tennis court—the microbiota inhabiting the gut is the largest and most diverse in the body. The gut microbiota contains roughly one quadrillion cells—at least ten times as many cells as does the human body itself.
More than 1,000 bacterial species having been identified to date, with unknown numbers yet to be discovered.
The bacteria that come to colonize the bowel are acquired during birth and shortly afterwards, a process that is very much influenced by how a baby is born.
Humans evolved right along with the gut microbiota normally acquired during vaginal birth. When the composition of the microbiota is imbalanced, or unusual germs like Clostridium difficile appear, the immune system doesn’t like it.
A low-grade, long-lasting inflammatory response directed at these intruders begins at birth, leading to a kind of weakness and “leakiness” of the intestinal lining. Proteins and carbohydrates that normally would not be absorbed from the intestinal contents—including large, incompletely digested food molecules—make their way into the infant’s bloodstream.
Bacteria in the gut impacts both intestinal and behavioural symptoms in patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
There are trillions of microorganisms that live in our intestines. Formerly called the gut flora, these bacteria are known as the gut microbiota. Approximately one-third of the gut microbiota is common among people, but two-thirds are specific to the individual.
Poor GM / processed food diet and antibiotic use changes the makeup of bacteria in the gut, contributing to symptoms experienced by people with IBS.
Emotional stress can impact the shape and function of microorganisms in the gut.
Changing the gut microbiota influences the ability of the intestines to contract and move waste through the system, which causes symptoms like constipation or bloating.
Changes in the gut microbiota can also impair communication between the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, which increases a person’s risk of developing IBS.
Probiotics can enhance gut barrier function, inhibit pathogen binding and modulate gut inflammatory response. They can also reduce visceral hypersensitivity associated with both inflammation and psychological stress. Probiotics can alter colonic fermentation and stabilize the colonic microbiota.
There is an important symbiotic relationship between commensal microbiota and their host, which has evolved over millions of years.
Infants born by cesarean section—don’t encounter the friendly bacteria of the birth canal and maternal rectum.
The bacteria inhabiting the lower intestine following a cesarean birth differs significantly from those found in the vaginally-born baby.
“Microbiota” is the term used to describe the community of microorganisms—bacteria, viruses, and fungi—that normally live in or on a given organ in the body. There’s a unique microbiota that inhabits the mouth, for example, another that lives on the skin, and still another that populates the intestine, or gut.
It is NOT only the mother’s bacteria, the baby absorbs the father’s “charged” bacteria too , as a rite of passage in Sanatana Dharma ( the father has NO vagina –he imparts the microbiota from his scalp )
In Hindu culture when a baby boy is born, the father does NOT handle the boy till the 16th day.
On the 16th day , the father will get up before daybreak, and take a bath in clean Ganges water . He will then squeeze a few drops of water from his Kudumi ( shikha ) into the baby’s mouth. Only then he will lift the child and cuddle and kiss him for the first time.
The water wrung out of the wet hair ( Kudumi) is charged with human spirit , basically scalar energy.
In vaginally-born babies, the bacteria destined for the gut microbiota originate primarily in the maternal birth canal and rectum.
Once these bacteria are swallowed by the newborn, they travel through the stomach and colonize the upper and lower intestine, a complicated process that evolves rapidly.
As a rite of passage the eldest son squeezes a few drops from his wet untied kudumi into his dead father’s mouth just before cremation.
Remember his father had once done it , long ago, on the 16th day of his birth.
This is like a relay baton passing on.
After this he is not to look back .
The symbolizes the break with planet earth.
I am 100% sure than NO Hindu knows the significance of making a hole on the earthen water pot and allowing the water to strike the untied kudumi and flow down his back.
This is a very special feeling . I know how it felt when my father died. I had NO kudumi though.
With C-section and formula feeding, the baby will NOT to acquire the full complement of the mother’s vaginal, gut and breast milk microbes. This unfortunate baby’s microbiome will NOT resemble the mother’s microbiome.
A baby born by C-section will have a different microbiome from its mother, its grandmother, its great-grandmother and so on. C-section breaks the chain of maternal heritage and this break can never be restored. From that moment on, a different set of microbes will be passed on to that child’s child, to that child’s grandchild, and great-grandchild and so on.
I AM FROM A BLOODLINE LINE OF NATURAL BIRTH FROM MILLIONS OF YEARS
As soon as the mother’s waters break, this is the moment the party doors swing open, the stereo is switched on and the first VIP party guests ( GOOD bacteria ) flood in.
Suddenly the baby is exposed to a wave of the mother’s vaginal microbes that wash over the baby in the birth canal. They coat the baby’s skin, and enter the baby’s eyes, ears, nose and some are swallowed to be sent down into the gut.
More VIP guests in the form of the mother’s gut microbes join the colonisation party through contact with the mother’s faecal matter.
Many more microbes come from every breath, from every touch including SKIN TO SKIN cuddle contact with the mother and of course, from breastfeeding. No male member can handle the baby till the 16th day , including the father .
MY TWO SONS HAD ONLY BREAST MILK FOR THE FIRST SIX MONTHS.
THIS REQUIRES SACRIFICE FROM THE OTHER. THE CHILD KNOW IT FROM HIS OWN DNA .
I DRANK MOTHERS MILK TILL MY TEETH CAME .
MY MOTHER TOLD ME THAT I WOULD BITE HER NIPPLE AND LOOK AT HER WITH A GRIN , WITH A LOOK OF “ HEY, BABY, DID THAT HURT ?”
When a mother gives birth vaginally and if she breastfeeds, she passes on colonies of essential microbes to her baby. This continues a chain of maternal heritage that stretches through female ancestry for thousands of generations, if all have been vaginally born and breastfed.
The dramatic transition from womb to world is the time when a baby ingests some of the first bacteria that will colonise its guts. But babies born by C-section miss out on this process, and end up with a different set of bugs – including some from the hospital environment.
Why C section? Greedy gyneacologists and selfish mothers who think they will avoid pain by C section –in reality it is opposite
It is C-section microbiome could make the child more vulnerable to problems later in life, such as asthma, food allergies, hay fever and obesity … The gut microbiome starts developing in the womb but the process really takes off during birth itself, when babies pick up bacteria from their mother’s vaginal canal and skin.
Anything the modern CUNT doctor does NOT know , or whatever is immunity disorder , he puts it in the basket of GENETIC DISEASE .
Nowadays the latest FAD of the CUNT doctors is to swab new born babies with vaginal fluid after they’ve been born by caesarean section, to give them beneficial, set of gut bacteria. Sorry , this does NOT work.
Western mothers and Indian Chutney Marys don’t breast feed the baby. Their priorities are different—maybe to flash their breasts and have an extra-marital affair.
WE HAVE BENAMI BEDIA TO TOMMING HOW BOLLYWOOD STAR KIDS KAREENA KAPOOR AND SAIF ALI KHAN ARE MAKING BABY FOOD ( BILKUL EKATTA –BOLLYWOOD ESTTYYLE ) FOR THEIR NEW BORN BABY TAIMUR
The gut of breastfed babies primarily consists of Bifidobacteria - "friendly" bacteria that benefits the gut - while formula fed babies are have less of these bacteria.
Members of the genus Bifidobacterium are among the first microbes to colonize the human gastrointestinal tract.. One month after natural vaginal birth, bifidobacteria dominate a healthy, breastfed baby’s gut — making up as much as 92 percent of the microbes that live there.
These good-for-you bacteria help to tone the gut barrier and cultivate a strong immune system. Without high numbers of good bifidobacteria, the immune system falls out of balance. With this, the risk of inflammation, autoimmune disease, and eczema goes up..
Bifidobacteria are able to reduce intestinal permeability and seal a leaky gut. They take control of the inner ecosystem and push out bullying, bad bacteria. Bifidobacteria protect against the development of potentially life-threatening disease and give immunity to the growing baby.
ANY THING THESE CUNT MODERN DOCTORS DON’T UNDERSTAND , THEY CALL GENETICDISORDER
Inside breast milk, you have special sugars called human milk oligosaccharides (HMO’s) that are indigestible by the baby. These sugars are designed to feed the mother’s VIP microbes newly arrived in the baby’s gut.
With formula feeding, the baby won’t receive the 700 species of microbes found in breast milk. The baby also won’t receive the human milk oligosaccharides that provide the perfect food to feed the microbes newly arrived from the mother‘s vagina and gut (if vaginally born).
Plus, formula milk is likely to contain other bacteria that are not supposed to be there, for these might interfere with the optimal training of the immune system, with consequences for a child’s lifelong health.
There is an important symbiotic relationship between commensal microbiota and their host, which has evolved over millions of years.
All probiotics appear to have a short lifespan within the gut and need repeated dosing to keep a constant level. Where probiotics have been measured within the faeces, it is apparent that a week after stopping oral intake, they largely disappear from the stool..
Combinations of prebiotics and probiotics are called 'synbiotics' ..The manipulation of composition of the gut microbiota in infants and adults through dietary supplementation is possible by probiotic/prebiotic/synbiotic therapies.
The probiotics use the prebiotics as a food source, which enables them to survive for a longer period of time inside the human digestive system than would otherwise be possible. Probiotics are generally concerned with bacteria in the small intestine, while prebiotics with bacteria in the large intestine and colon.
Synbiotics [probiotics + prebiotics] enable to improve the viability of probiotics and to deliver specific health benefits. Probiotic/prebiotic/synbiotic characteristics include antimicrobial, anticarcinogenic, antidiarrheal and antiallergenic qualities, osteoporosis prevention, ulcerative colitis, reduction in serum fats and blood sugars, regulation of the immune system and treating liver-related brain dysfunction.

GMO foods interfere with our gut bacteria’s ability to produce neurotransmitters. Inflammation from leaky gut destroys serotonin, leading to insomnia, pain, anxiety, and excess stress.
Overuse of antibiotics, poor stomach function due to poor choice of foods , and lack of gut motility creates small intestinal bad bacterial overgrowth.
Concentrations of specific chemicals produced by gut bacteria are called metabolites - in fecal samples of children with autism differed to the concentrations found in the fecal samples of children without the disorder.
The microbiota — the collection of microorganisms that live within and on all mammals — provides crucial signals for the development and function of the immune system..
The microbial communities, their metabolites and components are not only necessary for immune homeostasis, they also influence the susceptibility of the host to many immune-mediated diseases and disorders
Almost all US Gulf war veterans have IBS. Hey, CHOOTS with bad karma --listen up.
95% of the body's supply of serotonin is produced by gut bacteria that gut bacteria have been associated with a number of mental health problems, including anxiety disorders and depression.
We can carry up to 2 kg of microbes in our gut. Within the tens of trillions of micro-organisms that live there are at least 1,000 species of bacteria consisting of over 3 million genes.
Two thirds of the gut microbiome - the population of microbes in the intestine - is unique to each individual.. gut bacteria are known to aid the production of certain vitamins - such as vitamins B and K - and play a major role in immune function.
The Vagus Nerve Reads The Gut Microbiome.
By reading the gut microbiome the vagus nerve initiates a response to modulate inflammation based on whether or not it detects pathogenic versus non-pathogenic organisms. In this way, the gut microbiome can have an affect on your mood, stress levels and overall inflammation.
In order for the gut to govern its own behaviour and trigger any reflexes, it has to sense what is going on in the lumen of the bowel. It does so using two detectors: the intrinsic primary afferent neurons of the intestine (IPANS) and enterochromaffin (EC) cells.
IPANs are activated by luminal content, such as pressure, nutrients, or acidity and they are the detectors that mobilize the neurons that control mixing and propulsion in the small intestine,.
The human gut is an amazing piece of work. Often referred to as the "second brain," it is the only organ to boast its own independent nervous system, an intricate network of 100 million neurons embedded in the gut wall.
So sophisticated is this neural network that the gut continues to function even when the primary neural conduit between it and the brain, the vagus nerve, is severed.
Serotonin is one of our neurotransmitters that are responsible for our mood. If our serotonin levels fall off we may experience anxiety and depression. Serotonin also plays a role in gastrointestinal disorders.
Gut bacteria produce hundreds of neurochemicals that the brain uses to regulate basic physiological processes as well as mental processes such as learning, memory and mood. Gut bacteria manufacture about 95 percent of the body's supply of serotonin, which influences both mood and GI activity.
Although serotonin is well known as a brain neurotransmitter, more than 95 percent of the body's serotonin is made in the digestive tract. Altered levels of this peripheral serotonin have been linked to diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome
Peripheral serotonin is produced in the digestive tract by enterochromaffin (EC) cells and also by particular types of immune cells and neurons.
EC cells are rich sources of serotonin in the gut.
Enterochromaffin (EC) cells are a type of enteroendocrine and neuroendocrine cell. They reside alongside the epithelium lining the lumen of the digestive tract and play a crucial role in gastrointestinal regulation, particularly intestinal motility and secretion.
EC cells modulate neuron signalling in the enteric nervous system (ENS) via the secretion of the neurotransmitter serotonin and other peptides
The large concentration of serotonin in EC cells is located in the basal granules of these cells because the serotonin is secreted into the wall of the gut, not the lumen.
The ECs release serotonin into the underlying connective tissue space, which contains the nerve fibres that express serotonin receptors and thus respond to serotonin.
These receptors include the 5-HT3 receptors known to send signals encoding pain, nausea and other noxious sensations to the CNS. This serotonin release occurs as the result of mucosal stimulation.
Serotonin, or 5HT, is an integral neurotransmitter in the enteric nervous system that profoundly impacts bowel function. Of particular interest are the serotonin receptors 5HT3 and 5HT4 – key mediators of motility, secretion, and even pain sensation.
After serotonin is released from enterochromaffin cells located in the lining of the gut, it flows to and binds to the receptors on nerve endings in the intestinal wall. A key to normal bowel function is how long free serotonin remains in the gut wall once it’s released.
Serotonin transporter or SERT is an extremely important transporter protein that is responsible for the re-uptake of serotonin from the synaptic space. If re-uptake is blocked, the cells can’t inactivate serotonin.
Serotonin (5-HT) and the serotonin transporter (SERT) are involved in the pathogenesis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Patients with IBS have a significant decrease in the serotonin transporter, or SERT, in the cells lining the bowel, Some IBS patients have an inadequate SERT mechanism which causes serotonin to stay around longer, triggering troublesome bowel changes.
Enteric 5-HT is responsible for the secretion, motility and perception of the bowel
Too much serotonin contributes to diarrhea and too little contributes to constipation
Serotonin is capable of activating the vagus nerve through various receptors.
Serotonin is produced in the enterochromaffin cells (EC) in the intestinal mucosa. Serotonin is produced, and then it bonds with its receptors. These receptors are known as the 5-hydroxytryptomine receptors, -- 5-HT receptors.
Once the serotonin is released, it activates our system to increase intestinal motility. There is an increase in plasma 5-HT during diarrheal diseases, and a decrease in them when constipation is present
5-HT (4) agonists are used to help treat constipation .
Therefore, if we have too little, or too much serotonin floating around we can experience all kinds of common gut issues.
The effects are mediated in part by activation of 5HT1A (R), 5-HT2 (R), 5-HT3 (R), 5-HT4 (R) and perhaps 5-HT6 (R) receptors.
On the other hand, 5-HT7 receptors reduce vagus activation (R, R2).
So serotonin will have some mixed effects, but overall it should stimulate the vagus nerve.
By blocking or stimulating serotonin receptors in the gut, it is possible to treat abnormal bowel action in those afflicted with IBS.
5-HT3 antagonists not only decrease stool frequency and increase stool firmness in IBS-D, but also reduce abdominal pain and discomfort.
5-HT3 antagonists not only decrease stool frequency and increase stool firmness in IBS-D, but also reduce abdominal pain and discomfort.
Not only are you changing the patient’s pain perception You are also changing the motility action of the gut as well. This is due to the blockade of 5HT3 receptors within the enteric nervous system.
Serotonin was not only a neurotransmitter but also a signalling molecule that ultimately triggers peristaltic and secretory reflexes.
The gut has more than seven seven different serotonin receptors.
Too much bile acids can contribute to diarrhea. People with IBS tend to experience increased sensations from the gastrointestinal tract in response to stimuli, such as distension and visceral hypersensitivity.
The release of serotonin and activation of interneurons within the ENS triggers a cascade of other neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine and Substance P, which excites peristaltic and secretary reflexes.
Serotonin stimulates the peristaltic reflex when it is applied to the mucosal surface and that serotonin is released when peristalsis is initiated. This reflex disappears when the mucosal actions of serotonin are blocked,
In addition to the increased bowel reactions such as cramps and diarrhea, pain receptorsARE so sensitive, so even the slightest intestinal distension after a meal can cause great pain.
HT3 receptors located in the enteric nervous system which resides within the intestinal wall are involved in the GI motor and secretory functions
5HT3 receptors are also present on extrinsic sensory nerves that are critical for sending signals from the bowel back to the brain.
So if the bowel is exposed to a painful stimulus such as excessive stretching or contractions in normal individuals, these extrinsic nerves are stimulated and the information is sent to certain areas of the brain that are involved in the pain response.
Under normal conditions, these brain regions are activated and lead to the activation of other nerve pathways and release of chemicals that suppress and lower the pain.
But this process does not seem to occur normally in people with IBS. That suggests that patients with IBS may fail to use central nervous system down-regulating mechanisms in response to incoming or anticipated visceral pain.
If you cut the central nervous system connection to the gut, the bowel function persists. The ENS relies on a number of neuropeptides and small molecules to regulate both intestinal motility and secretion.
Serotonin – or 5HT – is one of the most important signalling molecules involved in the peristaltic reflex . Alterations in serotonin signalling are responsible for IBS symptoms. Ninety-five percent of the serotonin found in the body resides in the gut.
The ENS can regulate peristalsis and secretion – independently of the central nervous system.
Two neural plexuses comprise the ENS: a larger, myenteric plexus, positioned between the muscle layers of the muscularis externa, which is home to the neurons responsible for motility.
A smaller, submucosal plexus houses sensory cells that talk to the neurons of the myenteric plexus and contain motor nerves cells, which stimulate luminal secretion.
Signals from the brain to the gut play a critical role in maintaining optimal digestive function, reflex regulation of the GI tract, and modulation of mood states.
The ENS consists of an extensive network of neurons supported by glia. Enteric glia are analogous to the astrocytes of the CNS. Enteric glial processes encircle large bundles of enteric axons. The small intestine contains about 100 million nerve cells, roughly equal to the number found in the spinal cord.
The altered bowel function, abdominal pain, and sensitivity symptoms indicative of IBS result from a disturbance in the interaction among the gut, the brain, and the Autonomic Nervous System – which includes the Parasympathetic, Sympathetic, and the Enteric Nervous System – or ENS – now recognized as the “brain below.
The enteric nervous system is composed of a vast network of neurons located throughout the GI tract. This neuronal network communicates directly with the brain through the spinal cord.
There are as many neurons in the small intestine as in the spinal cord, and the same hormones and chemicals that transmit signals in the brain have been found in the gut, including serotonin, norepinephrine, nitric oxide, and acetylcholine.
Yoga understood that there is a close interaction among mind, brain, and gut.
There is an increase in intestinal contractions and change in rectal tone during exposure to angry, sad, or anxious words. These changes of intestinal motor function influence brain perception
IBS patients are recognized by 3 subtypes based upon their predominant symptoms.
IBS with diarrhea predominance (IBS-D)
IBS with constipation predominance (IBS-C)
IBS with mixed diarrhea/constipation (IBS-M)
IBS interferes with patients’ social life, family life, even their education and careers. It’s the second leading cause of worker absenteeism. It is a dysregulation between the brain-gut axis as well as the existence of a “second brain” in the intestines.
Ancient Yoga knew how to tweak the Vagus nerve.
The vagus nerve that allows for communication between our gut and our brain is a two way street. Sometimes healing the mind will heal the gut and vice versa.
With a sophisticated neural network transmitting messages from trillions of bacteria, the brain in your gut exerts a powerful influence over the one in your head
People with IBS experience pain and bloating at much lower pressures than people without IBS. Serotonin, the neurotransmitter produced in the gut and located inside the enteric nerve cells, play a role in the disorder.
The GI tract is very sensitive to changes in serotonin levels. IBS occurs as a result of abnormalities in serotonin levels responsible for digestive function. Again, increased levels of serotonin in the gut result in diarrhea, while decreased levels may account for individuals who have IBS-associated constipation.
SURYA NAMASKAR treatment of IBS include serotonin-modulating agents that miraculously regulate the action of serotonin in the gut.
The GI tract contains 95% of the body’s serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter found in the brain and gut and is a common link involved in GI motility, intestinal secretion, and pain perception
Surya Namaskar must be done with a feeling of gratitude. It is NOT a physical exercise .
It is ineffective without associated mantras to usher in the feeling if gratitude. It is this gratitude thingy that finds the serotonin level miraculousy.
