In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, food is typically highly processed, high in sugar, and low in nutrients. Eating is very often “on the move” and stress has become an everyday thing. The very first thing to suffer in this chaotic lifestyle is our Gut health. Unfortunately, people find it easy to reach to the commonly abused over the counter drugs to get relief, though it could give a temporary relief, it does not give us the root cause of what’s really going for the gut health.
GUT IS THE SECOND BRAIN
Listen to your gut, it talks back. In fact, the brain and digestive tract are so closely linked that it can be used as one system, where Gut is referred to as the second brain. The longer we ignore the second brain, the worse we are going to feel.
A HEALTHY GUT – A HEALTHY YOU
A healthy gut strengthens the Immunity system of our body, reduces the incidents of infections throughout, Improves mood & mental health, boosts energy levels, improves oral health, supports weight loss, lower the blood cholesterol, regulate hormone levels for the smooth functioning of body processes like thyroid gland, overall it contributes to a longer healthier life.
An unhealthy or compromised gut can lead to abdominal pain & cramps, eczema, psoriasis, acne, depression, hormonal disturbances like Polycystic ovarian syndrome in women, fatigue, weight gain, trouble losing weight, trouble sleeping, joint stiffness & pain, obesity, autoimmune diseases, vitamin B12 deficiency, thyroid issues and many more.
THE GUT TALKS BACK- LISTEN TO YOUR GUT- Is your diet killing your good gut bacteria?
The balance of gut bacteria is very important for the smooth functioning of the digestive system as it affects nearly every system in the body. Diet & lifestyle are the main culprits of disrupting this balance predisposing us to many deadly disease states including inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, obesity, depression & even cancer.
Are you eating too much sugar & processed foods, too many carbs like white bread, pasta, too few anti-inflammatory food items like fresh fruits & vegetables?
Are you under stress the whole time?
If yes, you are compromising your health in the hands of your lifestyle. Follow the 4 R’s of achieving an ideal Gut health, Remove, Replace, Restore, and Repair.
