There is a strong connection between gut inflammation and anxiety related to stress and it starts with the vagus nerve’s involvement in the neuro-immune system. The vagus nerve is a nerve that comes directly from the brain and has connections to and from the heart, lungs, ear, tongue, throat, esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, kidney, ureters, spleen, female reproductive organs. With all those connections it’s no wonder that the effects of stress on the body are vast.
