Have you heard of the theory of the 3 “Brains”? Those being your head (obviously) plus your heart and gut. People are often surprised to learn that the heart and gut have neurons, like the brain. Now not all neurons are brain cells and not all brain cells are neurons. While the heart and gut may not exactly have ‘brains’ they do have highly specialised systems to participate in autonomic function and provide sensory feedback to our brains. These systems need to work together. They are intricately connected. I’ve been talking more and more with Melissa from The Happy Child about this and I’m definitely learning the advantage to listening to my 3 brains!
