The Importance of a healthy Gut

Hopefully you have heard about the importance of gut health, what it really means and why you should care.

To understand this, we need to go down to the cellular level. Our stomach and intestinal health will determine the overall health of our bodies, including our brain (bottom line.) It is not enough to just eat the right foods; our gut needs to process those foods in a way that our cells can use it. We run into issues because we have stress, get poor sleep, encounter toxins and chemicals every day. We take medication and eat processed foods and our bodies cannot handle the load.

How do we know if we have a gut problem? Well, the majority of us need to heal our gut in some way and we ALL need to provide ongoing support for our gut and digestion. You might have symptoms or you might not, but if you do experience any of the following, it would be a good idea to start adding gut healing foods and get tested to find out if your gut is compromised.

  • digestive discomforts
  • sluggish bowels
  • foggy brain
  • low energy
  • cravings
  • difficulty with weight loss
  • irritability
  • depression

The body does not operate as separate entities. If your head hurts, it’s probably your gut.
