Almost everyone knows it: “the good gut feeling” that makes you happy and satisfied, “the bad gut feeling” that hits your stomach and can trigger nausea, but also the unpleasant feeling of being down and in a bad mood.
If, from a medical point of view, people are often listless, listless, dissatisfied or persistently moody for no apparent reason, this could also be due to the so-called happiness hormones, which are produced by special cells in the intestinal mucosa.
Hardly any other organ therefore influences the well-being of body and psyche as much as the intestine.
In fact, there is an extensive network of nerves in the abdomen, consisting of nerves almost identical to those of the brain.
This enteric nerve plexus – also called the abdominal brain – is formed from about 100 million nerve cells. That’s almost as many nerves as there are in the entire spinal cord. They are independently engaged in digestion day and night and simultaneously process feelings and experiences such as joy, anger, sadness and rage. Several messenger substances are produced in the abdomen, as well as two important “happiness and mood hormones”: serotonin and dopamine. While 90% of the “good-luck hormone” serotonin is produced in the gut and only 5% in the brain, the reverse is almost true for dopamine.
Since the intestine is so important for the well-being of the body and psyche and must process the enormous amount of approximately 75 tons of food in the course of a lifetime, it is especially important to pay attention to a healthy diet and intestinal health.
Consciously, we perceive almost only the stomach cramp caused by stress and excitement, which can lead to vomiting. Cramps of the intestine, bladder or other abdominal organs, on the other hand, usually first manifest themselves through chronic functional disorders or inflammation.
Schöndorfstrom therapy involves a special procedure that can be used to specifically treat some abdominal problems – and specifically dysfunctions of the enteric nerve plexus. For example, sufferers report: “The annoying stomach cramps no longer occur,” “The susceptibility to bladder infections that I had for years is gone,” “My bowels are in order again,” “My bad inner mood is gone,” etc.
