“People underestimate the power and importance of the gut, we abuse the integrity of the digestive system and we ignore all the vital warning signs presented to us. Apart from the physical warning signs, the gut is also the seat of all emotion and stress and this is an area where we as humans need to be more connected to.” - Kay Bodanza
