Lets Talk Gut Health: Why is it important?
Fun Gut Fact:
90% of your serotonin is made in your gut. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter in your brain that plays a large role for your nervous system and digestive tract.
Serotonin levels effect mood, sleep, behaviour appetite, digestion, sleep, memory, sexual desire and function. How is this possible?
Our Gut and Brain are connected! I'll let that sink in for a moment......
This means that your diet plays a BIG role in how you think, feel and behave.
How does our gut influence our health?
Our immunity is largely based on the billions of healthy (or unhealthy) bacteria living in our gut; we call this our microbiome. Eating a healthy diet helps keep our microbiome thriving while a poor diet and lifestyle choices work in reverse.
Since most developed countries have an abundance of processed foods, we are over taxing our bodies while we live off of chemical, high sugar ingredients that are disrupting our natural homeostatic state. Hands down digestive health is one of the biggest health concerns worldwide.
IBS, IBD, and Food allergies / Indolences are higher now then any time in human history. This is largely due to food, lifestyle choices and environmental factors.
So why is my bloating or heartbur such a big deal?
Bloating is a symptom. It's your body telling you that something isn't right. Symptoms can appear in many forms, some of which you may not have realized. Most people tend to only start seeking help once they notice symptoms or when these symptoms begin to effect their way of life. Unfortunately the issues you may be experiencing started long before the symptom. Many things happen in our body that we can not see or feel until the issue becomes a lot bigger.
Studies have shown that our gut bacteria has been linked to:
Obesity - Asthma - Diabetes,- Arthritis - Fibromyalgia - Eczema
Psoriasis - Autoimmune Diseases - Cardio Vascular Disease. Just to name a few!
The great news is that by healing your gut and making better food/lifestyle choices you can eliminate your symptoms and reduces the risk of larger health issues.
Excellent Digestion - Strong Immune Function - Healthy Bowel Movements Increased Energy - Brain Clarity - Improved Mood - Appetite Management - Healthy Body Weight
