Taking gut issues seriously can mean vibrant health for a lifetime. The gut has many crucial roles in protecting the overall health and wellness of our bodies, starting with the intake and absorption of nutrients and water.
However, few people realize that gut health isn’t just about having proper digestion and nutritional uptake, the microbiome plays a huge role
in the health of your immune system and the production of key neurotransmitters and vitamins.
Recent medical breakthroughs have shown that the balance of friendly gut microbes that live in your digestive systems rule the entire health of your body.
The good gut “bugs” are your first defense against harmful viruses and bacteria and also safe-guard proper communication from your brain to body not only for proper digestion but also to regulate mood and manage stress levels.
So when a common “belly ache” becomes a regular weekly event, it could mean a serious gut imbalance that can have far-reaching consequences for your wellness. Don’t just chalk it up to having a “sensitive” stomach… seek out care from a functional medicine-trained provider to avoid compromising your health long-term.
While the symptoms of 100s of gut diseases are literally the same (bloating, gassiness, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain), they may be caused by very different mechanisms that require a specialized approach.
That’s why it’s dangerous to mask the warning symptoms with over-the-counter remedies like antacids, laxatives or anti-diarrheals – without investigating the true root causes.
Some examples of digestive disorders include Leaky Gut Syndrome,Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), and its cousin Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth (SIFO)
On the other hand, several autoimmune conditions involve digestive symptoms, such as Crohn’s Disease, colitis, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
