Michael Gershon has devoted his career to understanding the human bowel (the stomach, esophagus, small intestine, and colon).
His thirty years of research have led to an extraordinary rediscovery: nerve cells in the gut that act as a brain.
This second brain can control our gut all by itself. Our two brainsthe one in our head and the one in our bowelmust cooperate. If they do not, then there is chaos in the gut and misery in the headeverything from butterflies to cramps, from diarrhea to constipation.
Dr. Gershons work has led to radical new understandings about a wide range of gastrointestinal problems including gastroenteritis, nervous stomach, and irritable bowel syndrome.
The Second Brain represents a quantum leap in medical knowledge and is already benefiting patients whose symptoms were previously dismissed as neurotic or its all in your head.
