Our second brain or intestines thinks too


“Listen to your gut”, wise people advise us. Our inner instinct, as a rule, does not make mistakes in relation to situations and people. This brain creates confusion and encourages us to do something that the inner voice discourages. “I should have listened to the inner voice,” we complain later. Perhaps it helped people survive in antiquity.
In the intestine and intestinal lymphoid tissue there are millions of nerve cells, almost as many as in the brain. This means that the intestines can process information about what is happening and turn the reaction into action independently of the brain and the central nervous system.
If necessary, the intestine is able to control its functions independently.
The intestine is able to take emergency action on its own: everyone knows that an attack of fear can cause a sharp reduction in the peristaltic muscles, which sometimes leads to diarrhea. In all likelihood, this reflex is provided by nature in order to save energy in extreme situations. Being face to face with a lion, you hardly want to spend the body's energy to digest food and gather strength to fight or flee. The body is freed from excess weight in the name of survival.

Our second brain or intestines thinks too

  1. Ultimate or big brain
    The end brain in ontogenesis develops from the anterior cerebral vesicle and is represented by the two hemispheres. The hemispheres of the brain are made up of gray matter (cells) and white matter (fibers or pathways). Microscopic study of the cerebral cortex, initiated by the domestic scientist Professor V.A.

    As we have already found out, and directly from our own experience, skin problems are always associated with unhealthy diet, with poor-quality products, with a lack of physical activity.

  4. General reasoning for expectoration of sputum, which begins on the second or third day
    The best sputum, [which is expectorated] is most likely, lighter and more abundant and, moreover, the most mature - the sputum is white, smooth, uniform, not viscous, but on the contrary, balanced in composition. Expectoration of sputum, close to such maturity, soothes confusion, if it has been observed before, and [eliminates] insomnia or other bad manifestations of the disease. Then comes [sputum], passing

  6. Our mental manager
    Of course, the subconscious not only hurts us in this way, it does a great job of streamlining our ideas about the world, in essence being the main custodian of our Picture of the World.

  7. What does the newborn think?

  10. What does our head think
    In each person’s head, including the Wizard, there is a certain system of values. Within the framework of this system, we trust one information, and check the other, question it, or discard it with a cry: “Bullshit!” Thanks to this hierarchy, we select a specific area from which we receive information as an area of ​​absolute trust.

  11. The role of the large intestine in the life of vegetarians and meat eaters (Mechnikov, Shatalov and the large intestine)
    "For a long time, scientists could not understand what role the large intestine plays in our body. I. Mechnikov even considered that we simply do not need such an organ."

Indeed, if the body receives essential amino acids with animal proteins, and the functions of the large intestine are not
