Nourish Your Gut

A healthy body begins with a healthy gut. 


Living within your digestive tract are trillions of bacteria, commonly referred to as your “microbiome”. The health of your microbiome is essential to your over-all health because these bacteria have many essential jobs including:

  • Breaking down and absorbing nutrients

  • Recognizing and eliminating toxins

  • Teaching your immune system how to respond to foreign pathogens

  • Communicating with your brain to release hormones that regulate hunger, metabolism, mood and stress

Maintaining a balanced microbiome is absolutely critical to each of your body system's ability to function properly. However, in today’s world it can easily become damaged due to factors such as stress, refined and processed foods, medications (especially antibiotics), alcohol, chemicals and pesticides. When your microbiome is imbalanced it will often result in symptoms such as:


- Chronic allergies & sinus congestion  

- Skin issues, acne, eczema

- Digestive upset, IBS/IBD & constipation 

- Unexplainable weight gain/loss 

- Mood imbalances, anxiety, depression

- Chronic fatigue

- Nutrient deficiencies

- Hormonal imbalances

- Autoimmune disorders 


Simple ways to nurture your Microbiome:

Lifestyle

  • Drink plenty of filtered water - 1/2 body weight in oz per day

  • Exercise regularly

  • Relax, relieve stress and s

  • Only take medications & antibiotics when absolutely necessary

  • Take a daily probiotic - see below for my favorites

Food

  • Enjoy prebiotic & probiotic rich foods

  • Avoid processed & fried foods and junk oils

  • Reduce starchy carbohydrates & refined sugar: rice, bread, potatoes, crackers, baked goods, desserts, fruit juice, and all that sugary stuff!

  • Limit alcohol consumption
