Gut Health and Solar Plexus Chakra By Alma Wellbeing

"Gut health" typically refers to the state of your gastrointestinal (GI) system, which includes your stomach, small and large intestines, and other digestive organs. It's an essential aspect of overall health, as a balanced and functioning gut contributes to proper digestion and nutrient absorption and even influences other bodily systems like the immune system and the brain.

Located about 4 inches above the navel, just below the rib cage, your Solar Plexus Chakra is represented by the color yellow and fire element. It is your bandha responsible for your self-confidence, motivation, and sense of purpose. Because of its physical proximity, an imbalance in your Solar Plexus Chakra directly impacts your gut health, digestive system, intestines, and colon health.

Physical Symptoms of a Blocked Solar Plexus Chakra:

  • Indigestion

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Eating disorders

  • Excessive weight gain

  • Ulcers

  • Diabetes

  • Issues with the pancreas, liver, and colon

  • Heartburn

  • Sensitive or bleeding gums

Emotional Symptoms of a Blocked Solar Plexus Chakra:

  • Overanalysis (paralysis by analysis)

  • Uncontrolled anger and irritation

  • Low self-confidence

  • Doubt and mistrust towards the people in your life

  • Insecurity and low self-esteem

  • Need for continuous validation from others

  • Unhealthy attachments

  • Rigid and controlling behavior

  • Self-victimizing mentality

  • Lack of direction and motivation

  • Difficulty setting boundaries

From a more scientific standpoint, a growing body of research explores the "gut-brain axis." This is the bidirectional communication network between the gut and the brain. The gut is filled with a complex community of microorganisms known as the gut microbiota, which play a crucial role in digestion and various aspects of health. Recent studies have suggested that gut microbiota influence brain function, mood, and behaviors.
