I absolutely love treating the gut because the health of the gut has far reaching impacts on the rest of the body. For example, I cannot tell you how many times I’ve treated eczema, or depression, or anxiety, or joint pain, or blood sugar abnormalities by addressing digestion and elimination. This is because the health of the gut is intricately connected to all systems of your body including your skin, joints, muscles, brain, etc.
The foods you eat, the medications (or supplements) you take, the stress you experience, and the environment around you, all play major roles in the health of your gut. The microbiome, which includes trillions of living bacteria and other microorganisms, is truly the foundation of sound gut health, and it can be modified by addressing a variety of lifestyle and dietary factors.
If you experience chronic gastrointestinal issues like gas and bloating, pain, heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, or constipation, your guts needs a tune up. The beautiful thing about utilizing natural medicine is major changes can take place over many months, and soon enough you may notice changes in your brain function, skin texture, sleep quality, mood, thyroid function, or overall vitality.
