Gut Microbiome & Digestive Health
Tending to the digestive system is important for many different physiological processes in the body. A healthy gut is intimately linked to inflammation in the body and mental health. If there is inflammation or dis-ease in the gut (bloating, constipation, diarrhea, cramping, irregular bowel movements, etc), then there will be inflammation in the entire body.
Our bodies are holistic, meaning that what is affecting one part of the body will inevitably affect the others. This means that the basis of the immune system and fertility also arise from the strength of the gut.
Signs your gut microbiome and digestive health may not be optimal:
- Alternating diarrhea and constipation
- Severe bloating & gas
- IBS & IBD
- Crohns or colitis
- Lower abdominal pain
- Heartburn or GERD
- Anxiety or Memory Disorders
- Skin conditions
