Poor Gut Health

July 30, 2016

 

 

 

A healthy gut is vital in improving your health and well being, in particular digestion, immunity and maintaining a healthy body weight. When our gut health is compromised, it can have a profound effect on many different structures and functions in the body. So what can cause gut dysfunction?
⦁    Rushing when you eat
⦁    Stress
⦁    Inflammation
⦁    Lack of bile in the liver and gall bladder
⦁    Poor dietary choice which exarcerbates food sensitivities
⦁    Medications
⦁    Infections
What are some possible signs to look for?
⦁    Bloating
⦁    Poor sleep
⦁    Lack of energy
⦁    Moody
⦁    Constipation/diarrhea
⦁    Skin problems
⦁    Weight fluctuation
⦁    Difficulty losing weight
⦁    Constantly sick
⦁    Constantly hungry
How can I help fix this?
Increase prebiotics in your diet. Prebiotics are a type of fibre only found in plant based products such as:
⦁    Onions, leeks, bananas and oats.
⦁    Potato starch, kumara (cold) also known as 'resistant starches'.
⦁    Fermented foods such as apple cider vinegar, kimchi and sauerkraut.
