Posted by Romy Lawson on

Why is it that you feel butterflies or knots in your stomach when you’re nervous? Or have you ever heard that you should follow your gut instinct? These expressions aren’t just something that you learn from your nan, they signal an innate understanding that our brain & gut are intimately linked.
