#76 - GUT SYMPTOMS YOU CAN FIX

    • How can you tell whether your health is starting to suffer from a lack of healthy bacteria in your digestive system? 

      The following symptoms are all signs that too many unhealthy bacteria have taken up residence in your gut and that you probably need to check in with your Naturopath: 

    • -
      1. Gas, wind, bloating
    • -
      1. Constipation or diarrhoea
    • -
      1. Fatigue
    • -
      1. Nausea
    • -
      1. Headaches
    • -
      1. Sugar cravings or cravings for refined carb foods
    • -
      1. Difficulty losing weight

    • Diet is of course crucial in nourishing the healthy bacteria in your gut and minimising the growth of health-harming bacteria.

      -
      1. AVOID all processed foods as they contain emulsifiers, sugar, artificial flavours/ colours, sweeteners, and usually too much salt and nasty fats (like hydrogenated vegetable oils)
    • -
      1. AVOID all sugar as much as possible as these feed bad bacteria and yeasts like Candida
    • -
      1. AVOID relying on antacids and laxatives to cope with your symptoms, there are natural medicine alternatives and dietary measures to address these issues
    • -
      1. AVOID foods that are naturally high in sugar like dried fruit, fruit juice, honey, jam
    • -
      1. AVOID unnecessary use of antibiotics- keep in mind that medical antibiotics are not the sole source of exposure. About 80% of all antibiotics sold in the U.S are actually used in livestock production to fatten up the animals and prevent disease.

    • There are easy, cost effective ways of rebalancing your gut environment so that you:

      -
      1. ABSORB your nutrients from food better
    • -
      1. DON'T suffer from digestive symptoms
    • -
      1. LOSE weight or maintain a healthy weight range
    • -
      1. OPTIMISE your bowel function
    • -
      1. ENJOY abundant energy

    • Check in with your Naturopath if you think your gut is causing you grief.
