Inflammation and the Brain, 2

A variety of factors can trigger unhelpful inflammation in your Gastrointestinal system, including:

·         Stress from overwork, accidents, an unbalanced lifestyle, or skipping nutritious meals when your body needs the nutrition

·         Emotional upsets such as worry and panic attacks, or anything that triggers the stress response

·         Food allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances to specific types of foods

·         Hormonal imbalances often involving estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone; glucose and insulin problems

·         Eating and/or drinking too much at one time or ingesting very rich foods that cause your digestive system to overwork (it may or may not be accompanied by heartburn)
