My stomach was feeling strange, my head was a bit light, and I just didn’t feel up to speed. Was it food poisoning? Was it the stress from work? Or, was it a combination of both? Could one affect the other? Could one cause the other? Or, could it be cumulative over weeks and months of dealing with stress . . . even just little annoyances?
The relationship between the brain and the gut, the Gut Brain Axis, is a marvelous balance of stress, digestion, and immunity. We experience stressful situations on a daily basis, and that ultimately takes its toll. The Gut Brain Axis is a two-way street, both sending and receiving information and stimulation from both directions. When we’re upset from something happening right now, the response is quick and automatic. When the stimulus comes from a stored brain pattern, a S.E.M.O., the same response occurs; it’s automatic and more insidious. It’s like it sneaks up on us and grabs us . . . in the gut!
B.E.S.T. is geared to not only address these stresses, but also to update the memory patterns associated with this relationship to stress. Real or imagined, the response of the body through the Gut Brain Axis is automatic and 100% predictable.
We adapt to the stress by changing the activity in the gut, or we adapt our thinking to respond to the stress from the gut. It can be a win/win situation, or it often becomes a lose/lose response manifesting in worry, fear, upset stomach, constipation, loose stool, or just anxiety. Since this is stored in the limbic centers of the brain, emotional triggers are always activated. That is a Subconscious Emotional Override (S.E.M.O.). And, this pattern is not only predictable, but also “updateable”. It can be repurposed, replaced, and updated to reflect current need rather than a past experience. We can update a Gut Brain Axis pattern with the power of B.E.S.T.
The way this happens depends on the direction of the nerve impulses. If the brain initiated it from a thought or memory pattern, Supine B.E.S.T. or Emotional B.E.S.T. is paramount for an “update.” If the challenge is gut initiated, digestion or immune response may be the key.
The overall soundness of the gut is probably the single most important issue we deal with for our on-going health. Armed with the keys to success, including B.E.S.T., Alkadolphilus®, Super Digest®, Alka·Pan®, and Trace Minerals, we can fortify the system from the top down and from the bottom up.
