HOW TO MAKE YOUR GUT HEALTHY AND HAPPY

About

WHEN I FIRST BEGAN STUDYING NUTRITION IN 2009 THERE WAS PRETTY MUCH NO MENTION OF GUT HEALTHY AND HAPPY.
Since then a lot has changed and most of us now know that to maintain good health, the gut must properly absorb nutrients and eliminate waste and toxins on a daily basis. So, it’s not so much what you eat but rather what you absorb that counts. A few years ago, most of us didn’t even know what the word microbiome meant.

THE MICROBIOME IS THE GENETIC MATERIAL OF ALL THE MICROBES – BACTERIA, FUNGI, PROTOZOA AND VIRUSES – THAT LIVE ON AND INSIDE THE HUMAN BODY.
Just think of where your gut is located – the center of your body – and this is also the hub or headquarters where your immunity, brain function, metabolism and weight are controlled from. Roughly 70% of our immune cells and more than 90% of your serotonin (which is your “feel good” or “happy” hormone) is stored in your gut as well.

SO WHO DO WE WANT OPERATING OUR HEADQUARTERS?
Well the good guys of course! There are more bacteria in your digestive system than there are cells in your body approx. 4Lbs! This 4Lb strong community if left un-policed will go rouge and the bad guys will start to take over. These are the bad gut bacteria that cause various digestive health issues alongside contributing to a wide variety of other diseases’ within your body and mind.

Repopulating with good bacteria (probiotics) is a vital way to keep inflammation under control. I have teamed up with www.precisionbiotics.com  for this article, who make Alforex and Zenflore to help ensure a healthy gut whether stressed, recovering from illness or trying to cope with common problems like IBS Irritable bowel syndrome to make your gut healthy and happy.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR GUT HEALTHY AND HAPPY

WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system.

FIRST LETS TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HARMS OUR GUT
Our modern lifestyle certainly has a lot to answer for including

A Bad Diet/Fast Food/Processed Food
Stress – The busyness epidemic
Hormone Problems
Medications
Alcohol
Autoimmune problems caused by Leaky Gut
SOME SYMPTOMS OF IMBALANCE
Skin issues: Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rashes
Food allergies/sensitivities
Sleep problems
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia
Mental fogginess
Depression
Mood changes
Autoimmune Diseases (lupus, MS, arthritis, etc.)
Food cravings
Bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea
Cramping after meals

SO WHAT CAN WE DO?
We need to ensure we hire the best to work in our headquarters. These generals include fermented foods which provide probiotics, vitamins and enzymes that help keep your digestive system healthy and free of illness and disease and drink like Kefir and Kombucha are great.

Kefir is a cultured/ fermented drink that you can make in both Milk and water varieties. Kombucha is fermented tea, both have been shown to be beneficial for the gut to promote good gut health with their bacteria strains.

LOTS OF FRESH WHOLEFOODS, FRUIT AND VEGETABLES INCREASE ESSENTIAL FIBRE TO HELP KEEP THE DIGESTIVE OPERATION WORKING WELL

CONCLUSION
When it comes to good health its now more important than ever to look at gut health. If science and studies now show us that our gut is the headquarters we need to go straight there and work from the top down.

By changing different aspects of how you live, you and your gut can become lifelong friends. If you treat your gut well then GUT HEALTHY AND HAPPY will repay you with great health, energy and vitality for life.

Start your day with a deep inhalation and set an intention to nourish yourself with great food, kind words, fresh air, exercise and great people. That’s the key to a more fulfilled life and your will also thank you.

When a person refers to ‘people’, they are most likely referring to people other than themselves and not to Helping People Win. The term ‘people’ points the figure outwards, instead of inwards, and focuses our attention on the right subject. This forces us to be more interested in the problem of the person in front […]
