Your health lies within
Let me teach you all about your gut health.
Did you know poor food choices can lead to poor gut health and that leads to disease and other conditions? Gut health is crucial for overall well-being, and a natural health approach is the only way to fix it. At its core, the philosophy of naturopathic medicine is all about supporting the body's innate ability to heal itself. Your gut depends on natural remedies like herbs, supplements, and diet changes while eliminating pharmaceuticals whenever possible.
How do you know your gut is unhealthy?
Let’s first point out that roughly 70% of your immunity is located in your gut. So if you want to boost your immunity and target disease you start with the gut. An unhealthy gut leads to a leaky gut and inflammation. If you have an irritable bowel or have been diagnosed with IBS, this is a direct result of an unhealthy gut. A leaky gut happens when the lining of your gut is damaged by toxins and the foods we eat and becomes too permeable allowing undigested foods and toxic substances to enter the bloodstream. This can cause a whole host of problems.
A natural approach can heal your gut
A natural approach focuses on getting to the root cause of illness instead of just masking symptoms. This approach eliminates processed and inflammatory foods while increasing nutrient-dense whole foods. Collagen-rich bone broth, prebiotics, probiotics, and elements of zinc and turmeric are all good choices for healing your gut and reducing inflammation. Prebiotics are found in everyday whole foods and are responsible for feeding healthy bacteria.
Probiotics on the other hand introduce good bacteria back into your gut. Fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and pickles are great sources of probiotics. You can also take probiotic supplements for a few months to increase and populate your gut with healthy bacteria. Probiotic supplements aren’t necessarily intended to take forever. The idea is once you populate your gut, you continue to feed the healthy bacteria with prebiotics and nutritional whole-food eating.
