We all know that gut health is crucial to our health. Yet most of us are unaware of how important gut health really is. A healthy gut can be the difference between feeling good and feeling awful.
If your gut is compromised or unhealthy, it can cause a wide range of negative physical and emotional symptoms, including bloating, discomfort, brain fog, fatigue, constipation and diarrhea, skin conditions, autoimmune disorders, and even weight gain. The benefits of healing your gut include a strong immune system, improved digestion, and an overall sense of well-being.
In this article, I cover some of the amazing things that happen in your body after healing your gut. I also discuss why gut healing should be at the top of your list as a priority! Learn what you need to do to start healing your gut right away. Read on to find out why your gut matters so much.
I have a favourite saying (I have many, actually, but I’ll stay on point. )
YOU’LL NEVER REGRET HEALING YOUR GUT.
Seriously, you won’t! If you heal your gut and you’re less bloated and more energized and full of happy hormones… I doubt you’d say “I wish I didn’t do that”. Right?!
So let’s talk about what’s going on, when things aren’t working as they should.
Has your gut got triple 000 on speed dial?
Bloating, fatigue, troubles in the bathroom…. Are you feeling BLAH?
Mayday! These awful symptoms are actually your gut telling you that there’s something wrong. And when your body starts raising the alarm, it’s time to act now… (not after your next holiday ).
That horrible, uncomfortable feeling that you get every morning after a session of mindless eating is literally your gut’s way of asking for help.
A healthy gut is a happy gut. Did you know that your gut is responsible for producing over 70% of some of your happy hormones? (eg. serotonin)
If you’re not feeding it the right foods, those bacteria and microbes are going to start to become very unhappy. And they’re going to send you a big, unhappy signal that something’s wrong’s too!
Here’s a few things that can happen if you DON’T heal your gut when it’s giving you the signs:
- Skin troubles, no matter how expansive your skincare routine is.
- Bloating, no matter what you eat.
- Brain fog, no matter how smart you are!
- Mood disorders
- Weight gain
- Catching colds more easily, meaning your immune system is threatened.
- Autoimmune conditions
- And more!
You see, healing your gut isn’t just about losing weight or getting rid of bloating (although, that’s a big bonus). It’s also about cleansing your body, and getting rid of toxins. Eating healthy, nutritious foods, moving your body with exercise, and getting plenty of sleep are the best ways to keep toxins from building up. This helps you maintain a healthy metabolism and live a longer life.
If your gut is a leaky hose, you can’t stop it from leaking right now, but you CAN get it fixed.
Your gut is a complex organ with lots of parts that work together. And it’s so important to your overall health. It is responsible for processing food, absorbing nutrients, eliminating waste products, keeping harmful bacteria at bay, producing hormones, producing vitamins and regulating blood sugar.
I think you’re getting the picture here…
The importance of gut health cannot be understated. As we are exposed to more toxins and processed foods, our gut health is deteriorating. That’s why I want to make sure you know what’s going on in there, and how to fix it.
So, what do you need to know?
What you eat matters. A LOT.
Your gut is like a little eco-system. It’s what feeds you and it’s what keeps you alive.
Your gut is also the first line of defense against infections and food allergies..
So, let’s stay positive! There’s so much you can do!
