Why You Need to Take Care of Your Gut Health

Published May 23, 2015

Gastrointestinal Health

leaky gut solutionIf your gut is not healthy, you will not be healthy, and it will be difficult to lose weight. Our gut is one of the main interfaces between the outside world and our internal environment. Medical research is just beginning to scratch the surface of gut function and its enormous impact on our health. If your gut is not healthy, you will not absorb the nutrients you need to produce energy and keep your body healthy. Your immune system, which is intimately tied to your gut, will be activated to fight against your body, instead of protecting you like it should. An unhealthy gut will cause you to absorb toxins and generate inflammation, which will interfere with the bodily processes meant to keep you healthy. It is difficult to underestimate how important a healthy digestive system is to health. In a nutshell, an unhealthy gut puts you at risk for a variety of health issues.

Enough gloom and doom. If you have poor gut function, there is hope to restore your health. The treatment depends on each patient’s particular situation. A comprehensive approach can offer solutions for poor gut health. Testing can reveal sources of inflammation, food sensitivities, infections, or the need for digestive enzymes or healthy bacteria. The goal is to remove what is irritating your gut, restore a healthy gut environment and repair the damage that may have already been done. Over time, the gut will heal and function well again and so will you.
