Gut Understanding

In developing the layers of my eating disorder recovery book I rediscovered the term "gut understanding."

 

My own gut feeling that led to my gut understanding in response to the term was, "oh, my gosh.  What a telling expression!"

 

What came to my mind immediately was this:

This question often comes up during a first consultation.  I thought I'd answer it here so you can see the reasoning behind my response.
