Trust Your Gut
More than 80% of our patients at Healing Elephant have one or more gut problems. We have great success helping even the most challenging gut issues that others have been unable to resolve. Gut issues are often the cause of many health symptoms you suffer from.
Digestive dysfunction can wreak havoc on your whole body, not just your tummy. You won’t overcome many health issues without fixing your gut which is why it’s vital to address the root cause of health issues rather than simply treating symptoms.
The following are all early warning signs that your digestive system is not functioning at its optimum:
- Bloating or acid reflux
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or IBD (Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis)
- Intense food cravings
- Crohn’s, colitis, or gastritis
- Stomach Ulcers
- Frequently get sick
- Nausea, vomiting, burping, or hiccups
- Gas or noises in your belly
- Fluctuating blood sugars
- Many food intolerances
When you focus on gut health, you may discover that you no longer suffer from the chronic diseases that have dominated your life. You may even be able to throw away your over-the-counter medications that are impairing your digestion.
Your Digestive Health is Vital to Your Overall Health
The digestive system is complex and made up of the gastrointestinal tract—also called the GI tract or digestive tract—and the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.
Digestion is aided by diverse gut flora, a type of good bacteria or microbiome in your GI tract. Parts of your nervous and circulatory systems also help. Your nerves, hormones, bacteria, blood, and the organs of your digestive system work together to digest the foods and liquids you eat or drink each day. When any of these are not operating at their optimum, uncomfortable symptoms will arise. Sometimes we can solve your digestive problems by solving just one of these, or we may need to take a whole body approach and solve every one of them simultaneously.
Maintaining a Healthy Digestive System
There are several ways to keep your digestive system healthy, including heart-healthy choices such as stopping smoking. You can also work to keep your weight in the healthy range, eat a balanced diet that includes fermented foods, exercise several times a week, and eat a nutrient-dense diet to fuel your body with the right fuel. Finally, reduce your stress levels with techniques that improve your mental health to help your gut health. Want more tips? Check out 11 Secrets to Lose Weight and Detox.
