A blog series on Bio-Individuality, this is Part 7 - let's dive in!
Eating to Keep Your Gut Happy
There is a majority of Americans who live with digestive issues. This is bad news because the gut is connected to nearly every system and organ in our body, which means that the way we treat our gut has a significant impact on, well, everything!
An imbalanced gut has been linked to chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and Crohn's disease.
Signs of an imbalanced gut include:
- Mood swings
- Depression and/or anxiety
- Digestive issues, like gas or bloating
- Suppressed immunity or autoimmune disorders
- Skin problems, like eczema
- Food allergies or sensitivities
A healthy gut responds differently to foods than an imbalanced gut, which means that your bio-individualized diet has to cater to what your gut needs from you. Unfortunately, there’s no pill out there that will ‘heal’ your gut.
However, as a Holistic Health & Nutrition Coach, I can work with you to help you minimize symptoms, recognize patterns, and change behaviors so that you can support your gut health and create a sustainable treatment plan to get your health back on track.
