The groundbreaking research of Dr. Michael Gershon, an expert in the nascent field of neurogastroenterology, and author of The Second Brain, has clearly demonstrated that the human body has a second brain: the abdominal brain.1 In fact, “gut instincts” are actually the biological function of this second brain. Some researchers suggest that the abdominal brain is actually the “first”, rather than the “second,” hypothesizing that it may have evolved in animals long before the cranial brain took its current form.2

The development of the abdominal brain occurs at the time of embryological development. During the formation of the neural tube (embryonic precursor to the central nervous system), neural plate cells (a key developmental structure within the embryo that serves as the basis for the nervous system) migrate into the abdomen and colonize this region. The spinal cord and vagus nerve serve as a bridge between the neural tube and neural plate cells.

Technically known as the enteric nervous system (ENS; enteric means related to the intestines), the second brain consists of sheaths of neurons (nerve cells) embedded in the walls of the gastrointestinal tract (which begins at the mouth and extends to the anus) and contains approximately 100 million neurons (more neurons than either the spinal cord or the peripheral nervous system). Like the cranial brain, the ENS secretes more than 30 neurotransmitters. In fact, 95% of the body’s serotonin is found in the intestines. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in multiple functions including mood, sleep, blood clotting, bone health, digestion, wound healing, and sexual desire.

Antidepressant medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) that increase serotonin levels, meant to cause chemical changes in the brain, often elicit gastrointestinal symptoms. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), evoked in part by excessive serotonin in the gut, may be regarded as a physical manifestation of a “mental disturbance” of the second brain.

Serotonin associated with the second brain might play a role in autism, the developmental disorder often appearing in early childhood. Autistic children often have elevated blood levels of gut-produced serotonin.

Synapses are the junctions between two nerve cells that consist of a minute gap across which nerve signals transfer via the offices of the diffusion of neurotransmitters. Dr. Gershon discovered that the same genes involved in synapse formation between neurons in the brain are also involved in the synapse formation in the gastrointestinal tract. He observes that this “could explain why so many kids with autism have GI motor abnormalities [i.e., malfunctions of the nervous system that cause involuntary or uncontrollable movements or actions].”

The ENS in the gut operates similarly to certain neural networks in the brain and spinal cord. It has been found that the ENS covers a wider area of the gut, and involves a greater amount of various types of neurons working in tandem than had previously been thought.

Dr. Gershon writes: “The second brain doesn’t help with the great thought processes…religion, philosophy and poetry is left to the brain in the head.” However, this mass of abdominal neural tissue secretes important neurotransmitters, and it strongly influences mental state and plays key roles in certain diseases throughout the body.

The multitude of neurons that comprise the ENS enables a person to “feel” the inner world of the gut. Thus, the common saying: “I have a gut feeling about this or that!” Much of this neural network’s operations are dedicated to the complex dynamics of food digestion, nutrient assimilation and waste elimination. The ENS features its own reflexes and sensing mechanisms, and can control gut behavior independently of the brain.  These reflexes and sensing mechanisms developed independently in the gut, rather than under the auspices of brain signals transmitted via the spinal cord. 

In fact, the second brain’s organization is far too complex to have evolved purely for the sake of digestive function. For example, approximately 90% of the fibers in the vagus nerve (the primary visceral nerve) carry information from the gut to the brain rather than vice versa. The left and right vagal nerves contain 75% of the parasympathetic nervous system’s nerve fibers, which, among other things, send information between the brain, heart and digestive system.

Also known as the tenth cranial nerve, the vagus nerve (a long nerve that originates in the brain stem and extends through the neck and into the chest and abdomen) interfaces with the parasympathetic nervous system and helps regulate critical body functions, including heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and digestion. This massive movement of information from the gut to the cranial brain via the vagus nerve suggests that a large part of our emotional state is greatly influenced by the abdominal brain.

For example, the sensation of “butterflies in the stomach” indicates that the abdominal brain is a primary part of our physiological stress response. In fact, variations in one’s daily emotional state may rely on messages sent from the abdominal brain to the cranial brain. This helps explain why electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve can exert an antidepressant effect.

Gershon remarks: “The thought-organ in the gut is an independent spirit, a vibrating, modern, data processing center… The abdominal brain guarantees the survival of spirit and soul in this dimension. It is the source of psychoactive substances [e.g., serotonin and dopamine) which are connected to mood.”

Neuroscientist and gut-health expert Emeran Mayer, has conducted research regarding the messages the abdominal brain sends to the cranial brain. He found that when the gut nervous system in those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is enmeshed in a state of chronic distress, certain areas of grey matter in the brain begin to shrink. Mayer concluded: “Recent neurobiological research into this gut-brain cross-talk have revealed a complex, bidirectional communication system that not only ensures the proper maintenance of gastrointestinal homeostasis and digestion, but it is likely to have multiple effects on affect. Motivation and higher cognitive functions including intuitive decision making…The gut prepares a ‘feeling’ bed in the brain of the head.”3

Anxiety and the Abdominal Brain

My decades of observation of anxiety has led me to conclude that it is a disturbance that is more related to the abdominal, than the cranial, brain.

Essentially, anxiety is a persistent, exaggerated state of worry and tension that is often experienced as a foreboding of some imminent, but usually ill-defined, misfortune. Most of the time, the worry is illogically out of proportion to the situation that inspired it.

The difference between fear and anxiety is that while the former is an effect elicited by a specific causative factor, the latter, while sometimes aroused by a broad spectrum of activities and events, frequently manifests when there is little or nothing to evoke it.

One of the hallmarks of anxiety is that the individual has a great deal of difficulty controlling the propensity to worry and inner tension. They can’t shake off their concerns and so these can build to a distressing fever pitch. Hence, there is an ongoing struggle to regain control of oneself, to be able to relax, and to establish an effective coping mechanism.

While anxiety is often associated with a specific mental disorder such as clinical depression, it commonly presents independent of any other emotional irregularity. Commonly, the mental/emotional symptoms of anxiety occur concomitantly with a wide range of gut symptoms, including stomach and/or intestinal distress, digestive weakness, tension in the solar plexus and diaphragmatic region, hiatus hernia, and/or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Clearly, given the preceding discussion, a therapeutic approach that focuses on calming and balancing the abdominal brain may prove of good service in the treatment of anxiety and a wide-array of other disorders. The protocol presented below (an extended addition of this article, available to those registered in the NHSS/SPE Membership Program provides complete details regarding the practical application of this protocol), which employs a synergy of blue chamomile essential oil, blue light chromotherapy (color light therapy) and labradorite gemstone essence is a gentle, natural approach in this reference that may prove helpful. 

Of course, disturbances of the abdominal brain require a broad spectrum therapeutic response featuring dietary change, nutrient supplementation, exercises, breathing exercises, hydrotherapy, therapeutic sunbathing, improved rest and sleep habits, etc. The protocol presented below is being offered as an example of adjunctive measures that may prove of good service when implemented in concert with the more fundamental elements such as said dietary changes and breathing exercises, etc.


Information, energy and matter are the three essential components of both the universe and the living human organism.

Information is most commonly defined as facts or data; knowledge obtained from investigation, instruction or study. In other words, it has a type of physicality. However, when it comes to health and disease, we need to adopt a broader interpretation of the term.

The idea that information is a quasi-material component of the universe needs to be supplanted with the understanding that information is neither matter nor energy. While, within the organism, it often does dovetail with the vital force (chi) which transports it via the acupoint meridians, information and materiality are conceptually distinct. In fact, information is in some sense more fundamental than materiality.

Information comes from an infinite number of sources. Assuming that an organism is able to receive and interpret the signals emanating from a specific source, those signals are capable of directly or indirectly exerting an impact on a dynamic system.

The three vehicles of information from the natural world and the cosmos utilized in the art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing are: essential oils, gemstone essences and color light waves.

Three Carriers and Transmitters of Healing Information:
Essential Oils, Gemstone Essences, and Color Light Therapy
for the Abdominal Brain

Essential Oils

Anthroposophy founder Rudolf Steiner states: “Matter is most spiritual in the perfume of the plant…When the spirit most closely approaches the physical earth, then we have the perception of fragrance.”

Anthroposophical science teaches that plants produce fragrance as a means of absorbing “the soul” of the sun which contains the essence of spirit. Fragrance formation represents an interaction between terrestrial and cosmic forces, and it’s used by the plant as a means of uniting with the spiritual essence contained within sunbeams.

Blue Chamomile Essential Oil

Blue chamomile, used for millenniums as a medicinal plant, is sometimes referred to as “the plant doctor”, because some have observed that it supports the growth and well-being of other plants, especially those that produce essential oils such as mints

The flowers, the part most commonly used medicinally, are harvested when fully open and then dried. In herbal medicine, blue chamomile exerts the following therapeutic actions: anodyne [reduces pain], anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, carminative, cholagogue [promotes bile flow], immune stimulant (stimulates infection-fighting white blood cells, including macrophages and B-lymphocytes), nervine, sedative, stomachic, and bitter tonic.

Blue chamomile herb has been observed to be useful in the treatment of the following symptoms: nervous tension; irritability; anxiety; hysteria; insomnia; inflammation; digestive disorders, including: indigestion, heartburn, colic, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, peptic ulcers and hiatus hernia; hemorrhoids; spleen weakness.

Blue chamomile’s herbal and aromatherapy pictures are very similar. Accordingly, in aromatherapy, blue chamomile oil is considered to be potentially useful in the treatment of the following symptoms: insomnia; neuralgia; migraine; tension headache; gastritis; peptic ulcers; dyspepsia; colic; flatulence; diarrhea; nausea; colitis; irritable bowel syndrome; liver dysregulation.

On an emotional level, blue chamomile oil is of potential value for ameliorating: anger; nervous tension; fear; timidity; anxiety; impatience; irritability related to menopause.

On a psycho-spiritual level, blue chamomile oil is thought to help an individual let go of anger and fear via communication and expression, assist in deeper connection to one’s intuitive power and encourage peacefulness and patience.

A review of the properties of the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla (Cham.)—prepared from the same plant from which blue chamomile oil is distilled—provides a great deal of pivotal insight regarding the psycho-spiritual dynamics of blue chamomile oil.

Some of the most relevant symptoms in this reference include: aggravation at night; worse in cloudy weather; many local complaints better by heat; worse for coffee; particular value for nervous women, general nervous sensibility; oversensitivity of the senses; excessive sensitiveness to pain; unbearable pain which drives the individual to despair; attacks of great anguish, as if the heart would break, with complete discouragement, excessive inquietude, agitation, tossing, turning and groaning; crying and howling; dwells on past disagreeable occurrences; inconsolable; ill-humor; quarrelsome; taciturnity and repugnance to conversation; absence of fear of death—would rather die than suffer so; intolerant of being spoken to or interrupted; cannot bear to be looked at; worse for touch; nocturnal sleeplessness with attacks of anguish, visions and illusions of sight and hearing; starts with fright when sleeping; emotions felt in stomach; colic; diarrhea; abdominal pain, indigestion, nausea worse for coffee intake.

Gemstone Essences

The art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing employs specially prepared gemstone essences to reduce psychical tension and resistance, and to fortify the aura and other aspects of the energy body.

Gemstones store information within their crystal matrices. The purification of the stones eliminates extraneous information picked up during their mining, storage and transport. This allows their natural, vibratory characters to once again radiate without foreign wave form interference. I use carefully selected gemstones and have developed a sophisticated method for mother essence preparation that begins with purification of the stones via placement among wild plants and trees within a long undisturbed forest, followed by the burying of the stones within an energy vortex by this forest’s creek and various other techniques that utilize the purifying and strengthening elements of the natural world, including sun, rain, wind, patches of wildflowers or wild berry bushes buzzing with bees, etc.

By “clearing the memory” of the stone, this purification process creates a vacated space for new vibratory information to be received and stored. In this regard, the purified stones I use to prepare gemstone essences are placed for about 24 hours in a private, protected open area surrounded by woods. Throughout the gemstone mother essence development process, the stones, while immersed in their distilled, mountain rainwater medium are receiving and storing the energies of sunlight, surrounding wild plants, wild animals, birdsong, wind, passing clouds, rain (some of the mother essences experienced rain showers during their development), moonlight and starlight.

Thus, all of the gemstone mother essences feature information indigenous to that specific gemstone and its original habitat as well as information projected by elements of the natural world of the Pacific Northwest. When someone takes a Spiritual PhytoEssencing gemstone essence, this information disperses throughout the mind/body/spirit organism, guiding those levels of being to a deep connection to the rhythms of the natural world and the light of spirit.

The Gemstone Labradorite

I have found that blue chamomile oil has an inherent dynamic plane relationship with the gemstone labradorite. Labradorite, is plagioclase feldspar, meaning that it is one of a common rock-forming series of feldspars, consisting of mixtures of sodium and calcium aluminum silicates

Showing a brilliant, iridescent play of colors across cleavage planes, and in sliced sections in some specimens (referred to as labradorescence), labradorite is used in jewelry and lapidary items. Labradorite is usually cut with a flat surface in order to highlight these flashes of color. It exhibits vivid colors of peacock blue, bright aqua, golden yellow, reddish orange, greens and red.

Labradorite has an affinity for the various chakras, including the solar plexus chakra. In fact, labradorite is considered to be a “solar plexus stone.” When worn upon the solar plexus region, the stone helps tonify the immune system.

On a physical level, labradorite is considered to have pain-relieving properties and of particular potential value in the treatment of: immunological weakness, brain disorders, hormonal and metabolic imbalances and digestive weakness.

Additional symptoms for which it may prove relevant include: diminished mental acuity; anxiety; fear; insecurity; weakness of will and focus; hopelessness; depression; apathy; low self-esteem; indecision; co-dependency; alcoholism and other addictions.

On a psycho-spiritual level, labradorite is calming, harmonizing and a specific for irascible individuals and those who fear change. The stone balances and protects the aura, elevates consciousness and grounds one’s psycho-spiritual energetics. 

Labradorite encourages transformation and self-discovery (especially during periods when one is experiencing conflict and change) by purging negativity, enhancing perseverance, courage, imagination, resourcefulness, intuition (especially regarding timing of actions) psychic perception (including clairvoyance) and dream recall, clarifying one’s thoughts and promoting better self-understanding via clear, objective assessment of personal views, aspirations and destiny.

This gemstone is considered useful for those who are involved in contentious, intimate relationships. It lends a protective energy to those whose psycho-spiritual energy is being drained by a dysfunctional relationship.

Color-Light Therapy

Each color we perceive is associated with a specific wavelength of light. This phenomenon is a result of how our eyes and brain interpret different wavelengths as distinct colors. From the warm hues of red to the cool tones of blue, every color has its own unique wavelength that contributes to the visual spectrum we experience.

Color is light and light is color. Light that falls on a surface is partly absorbed and partly reflected. Our eyes register this as “color.” When it is dark, we do not see colors. White is a mix of all the possible colors of the visible spectrum.

Without sunlight there could be no life on Earth. The primary form of light therapy is sunbathing. In ancient Greece, prisms were placed into the walls of certain healing temples, and patients were treated with the colored light rays. Herodotus developed heliotherapy, a method of treating patients with sunlight. The 1903 Nobel Prize went to Denmark’s Niels Finsen for his discovery that sunlight could heal skin tuberculosis.

One of the body’s most important receptor mediums is the skin. For thousands of years, Chinese doctors have used acupoints located on the surface of the skin to regulate the body’s energetics. In fact, the skin is a type of “brain” that receives signals from the outer environment and relays this information to the cranial brain and other processing centers within the body.

It has been shown that all the cells of the body (with the exception of cancer cells) emit light waves referred to as biophotons. External natural light (i.e., sunlight and moonlight) provides information, absorbed via the eyes and skin, which helps guide the internal light organization. There is evidence that this light organization is essential for the regulation of all cellular functions. Thus, a deficiency of exposure to natural light and the information it provides, leads to the dissemination of “misinformation” along the cellular regulatory pathways.

Wavelengths of light communicate information through their steady transmission of signals. Each wavelength provides specific and unique information.

Color light can communicate very complex messages depending upon which colors are used, in which sequence and which synergistic factors such as essential oils, gemstones, acupoint massage, moxa, etc.

Dr. Fritz Popp, a German physicist, discovered that the body cells radiate light. He called these light waves – biophotons. He found that these photons pass on information to other cells by means of light.

Therapeutically, color light therapy can be defined as treatment with luminous, radiant energy. In his book Color Meditation, S.G.J. Ouseley writes: “Each color has seven aspects. Each color vitalizes, animates, heals, enlightens, supplies, inspires and fulfils.”4

Blue Light Therapy

The blue light ray can release tension from the abdominal brain. Notably, the blue light therapy used in the Natural Health Science System for the abdominal brain, involves the pinpoint application of light waves (generally blue or yellow) to acupoints on the skin or to a small skin-area of between 2-3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm) of the solar plexus region, using polarized blue light. Using targeted area chromotherapy devices (often referred to as “pens”) involves no sustained eye exposure to blue light. When using a polarized light device on a small skin area, so long as one does not gaze at the blue light, there is no sustained eye exposure either.

Before discussing the potential benefits of blue light for the abdominal brain, this is a good opportunity to present a brief discussion of the dangers of extended exposure of the eyes to blue light.

Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood—seem to be the most disruptive at night. And the proliferation of electronics with screens, as well as energy-efficient lighting, is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, especially after sundown.

Light, a form of electromagnetic energy, is composed of electromagnetic particles that travel in waves. Each color has a different level of energy and wavelength depending on where it falls within the visible spectrum. Blue light waves have very short, high-energy wavelengths, just slightly longer and less potent than the ultraviolet (UV) rays emitted by the sun.

The sun is one of the main sources of blue light skin and eyes are constantly exposed to different light rays from the sun. However, the largest source of blue light exposure are LED lights as they release very large amounts of blue rays. Though more energy-efficient than many traditional, incandescent light bulbs, as LED lights are more concentrated and directional (emit light in a specific direction), they are more powerful. Thus, the larger and brighter an LED source is, the more eye-damaging it can be.

The risks associated with blue light exposure are now common knowledge. Aside from LED lights, the most prominent sources of blue light waves are TVs, cell phones, and other digital devices.

Regarding blue light exposure, the eyes are most at risk. The more time spent staring in close proximity at LED-powered devices, the greater the risk of developing cataracts or damage to macular tissue.5

While the cornea and lens protect the retina from ultra-violet light (less than 1% of UV light reaches your retina), they cannot efficiently block blue light rays because blue light rays have short wavelengths that can bypass the eye’s natural protective mechanisms. Nearly all visible blue light bypasses the cornea and lens and reaches the retina, increasing the risk of eyestrain, macular degeneration and a poor sleep pattern.  High energy, short wavelength (between 415 and 455 nanometers), blue light has been linked to eye damage.6  Notably, blue light-emitting devices such as a cell phone or tablet emit blue light wavelengths of between 400 and 490 nanometers.

Aside from its negative impact upon the eyes, another prominently discussed risk of blue light exposure is disturbance of circadian rhythm (i.e., wake-sleep cycle). As light sensors in the eyes perceive bright daylight when exposed to blue light, they signal the brain to wake up.

Blue light exposure also decreases the body’s natural production of melatonin. When darkness falls, the body normally increases its production of melatonin but blue light rays disrupt this response.

Benefits of Blue Light Therapy

While the downside potential for the eyes regarding random blue light exposure is well-known, the benefits of targeted blue light therapy are much less so. Many studies have investigated the effects of blue light therapy on traumatic brain injury.7,8 Complications of traumatic brain injury, can include depression, poor sleep, sensory and cognitive impairments, disturbed motor function, and more.

While thus far, blue light therapy has been shown to be primarily effective for countering depression related to a traumatic brain injury, fatigue and sleep-quality also improve.

Blue light boosts serotonin in the brain. Boosting serotonin, in turn, helps the body produce more melatonin at night.9,10 Notably, studies have found that depression ensues from exposure to otherwise full spectrum light lacking blue light waves. 

Other studies have shown that blue light therapy enhances connectivity within the brain between the amygdala and prefrontal cortex. The primary role of the amygdala, considered to be part of the limbic system (the emotions-center in the brain), is assisting in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional responses such as anxiety, fear, and anger). The prefrontal cortex, part of the frontal lobe in the brain, is responsible for an array of vital functions, including memory, attention, and emotions- regulation. Enhanced connectivity between the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex can improve cognitive control over one’s emotions.

Blue Light Chromotherapy

The type of blue light therapy used in my Natural Health Science System and art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing (SPE) involves neither long, nor eye, exposure, to blue light. Typically a specific acupoint, chakra or skin zone is treated for 30 to 60 seconds, using a color therapy “pen” device (essentially a small flash light with a crystal at its front end and interchangeable color lenses). When using a polarized light device on a specific area such as the solar plexus region, the skin-area illuminated is approximately a 3” (7.5 cm) circle and one does not gaze at the light during the treatment.

This color light therapy, referred to as ColorEssencingTM, is a style of chromotherapy (color-light therapy) designed to act primarily via the body’s bioenergetic pathways such as the acupoint meridians or chakras network.

In traditional chromotherapy, the blue light ray is considered to have the following healing qualities: antiseptic and astringent; soothes mind, body and spirit; calms the mind and stressed-out nerves; relaxes the nervous system; relieves tension headaches and insomnia; potentially beneficial for hyperactivity in children; aids recovery from shock; helps balance the endocrine system in general; dark blue is a specific for the pituitary gland and the testes; helps reduce pain, fever, inflammation, hemorrhage and high blood pressure; indicated for disorders involving pain, circulatory congestion and/or suppuration; may prove of value in cases of chickenpox or mumps; tooth problems and associated pain and inflammation; laryngitis or inflammation of the larynx; useful in the treatment of hemorrhoids; helps regulate muscle contraction and shortening of ligaments; strengthens the skeleton by supporting healthy bone marrow; one of the colors used to treat impotence, frigidity, menstrual pain, and menopausal complaints; useful for rheumatism and low back pain.

On a psychospiritual level, blue light: is associated with the Throat (5th) chakra, throat and thyroid gland, speech, communication and the speaking of one’s truth; the color of peace, infinity, truth, hope, emotional poise and serenity that can help ameliorate stress-related emotions and anxiety; reduces strong “hot” emotions such as anger, impatience, greed or jealousy; builds self-control and in chaotic situations; aids creative expression; enhances appreciation of truth, beauty and peace; promotes gentleness and sensitivity; enhances higher consciousness; amplifies link to one’s intuitive, higher Self.
