Getting To Know Your Gut

When we eat food and drink every single day, it can be easy to end up feeling a little ill and struggle with our digestion now and again. Our gut can be a sensitive thing which contains millions of bacteria and help to break down our food. However if you are noticing that you have indigestion or heartburn on an almost daily basis, there may be something else going on.

Because our bodies are all different and our guts can be sensitive, it could be worth going to see a gastro doctor if you have issues when eating. Here are some of the signs that you need to go and see a professional for your stomach.

Stress

One of the things you will notice if you aren’t eating the right foods is increased stress levels and even symptoms of anxiety or depression. The reason for this is that the lining of our intestines is covered in similar nerves to the brain, and they are responsible for releasing good hormones just like the brain is. This means that what you way will affect your mood.

Becoming Ill Frequently

If you notice that you are starting to become ill on a more frequent basis, this may be because you aren’t eating enough vitamin C in your diet. Vitamin C can be found in lots of different foods such as lemons, oranges, apples, grapefruit and lots more. It is an important vitamin for your immune system and can help with your cold. However if this doesn’t work you might need to take microbiomes for a few days to help you stomach with digestion and keep your gut happy.

Skin Problems

This is a sign you might have noticed already: when we eat bad foods such as oily and fatty food or lots of sugar, out skin can become inflamed, itchy, dry, acne ridden and more. Your skin is a great indication of your health level so if you do suddenly start to get a lot of spots you will likely have an issue which needs resolving. Drinking lemon water every morning can be a brilliant way to keep your skin healthy and your gut happy too.


Stubborn Weight

If you have a little weight which refuses to move, it might be a result of an u healthy gut which isn’t doing its job as it should. When you are overweight you have a different level of bacteria in the gut than those who are not. Taking probiotic shots on a daily basis may just help you to shift those extra pounds.

Acid Reflux

One of the most well known signs of an unhealthy gut is frequent acid reflux. Acid reflux accords when a buildup of bacteria occurs in the stomach and the GI tract. One thing you need to avoid is taking any antacids because this can actually help the bad bacteria grow. The best thing you can do is change your diet and let your stomach acid kill off the infection itself.
