Gut Health

What is gut health?

Your gut health is defined by the balance of microorganisms that exist in your digestive tract. The right microorganisms can help you maintain physical and mental health and boost immunity. When you have a healthy balance of gut flora, your health thrives. But if you have an overgrowth or shortage of certain viruses, bacteria, and yeasts living in your gut, your health may suffer.

What symptoms indicate my gut health needs revising?

Many symptoms suggest that your gut health could use an intervention. These include:

  • Gas, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea
  • Sugar cravings
  • Gaining or losing weight without making changes to your diet or exercise
  • Sleep disturbances and/or chronic fatigue
  • Rashes, eczema, and other skin irritations
  • Autoimmune conditions or systemic inflammation
  • Intolerance to certain foods and trouble with digestion

If you’re suffering from these symptoms, a gut microbiome imbalance may be to blame. Contact Renew Total Body Wellness Center for an evaluation.

What interventions help heal the gut?

Good nutrition, nutrition supplementation, exercise, and overall healthy living can help restore healthy gut flora. At Renew Total Body Wellness Center, your provider offers vitamin and mineral supplements to help optimize your health and wellness and start the healing process. Supplements can be helpful because if your gut is compromised, you can’t absorb the optimal nutrients from food. Adding extra doses helps correct some of the imbalances in your body as your gut heals.
