The link between the mind and the digestion
Your body is sensitive and easily affected by changes in routine, stress or anxiety. If you find yourself getting constipated when you’re stressed, you’re definitely not alone. Aggravation and excessive demands in the workplace, constant availability, relationship problems – anything that causes mental pressure can also have a negative effect on your digestion.
For example, a British study has shown that the digestive system of patients suffering depression is significantly slower than average – the more severe the depression, the slower the gut worked.
