GET YOUR GUT IN CHECK
Have a gut?
The other day I ate a ton of barbecue then followed it up with a bunch of tacos not long after. Safe to say, I was feeling pretty terrible about myself but also had quite a bit of discomfort and a belly bigger than I was used to.
Luckily for me this is a temporary feeling but for millions of other people in the world this is a constant discomfort. Digestion issues are plaguing our society from food intolerances, chronic inflammation, and many other problems. Obviously our diets definitely play into effect with all of this.
There are now diets the people go on that are gluten free, dairy free, carbohydrate free, processed sugar free, vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, the list goes on and on.
Personally I have not tried any of these diets long term but I do know that they have worked for every person. You really need to figure out what works best for you.
Diets are only one form of helping the gut. From there you can go into checking out certain supplements for the gut. This is endless and everyone has his or her own unique opinion about this. I believe that using whole foods is the best bet when it comes to everything versus supplements.
One thing that can have a huge impact on gut health is colon hydrotherapy. I know this is something that isn’t very common but from the people I have talked to, it has helped greatly with their digestion. If you are looking to go down this route reach out to us as we have some people we like to refer to for this!
One of the last things people think of when they have a gut problem is coming to a Chiropractor. This makes sense as a lot of people only relate it to neck and back pain. What they don’t realize is that Chiropractors work with the nervous system. A lot of people who have gut issues have nervous system issues going on. The body is stuck in a chronic state of fight or flight, which causes inflammation and making it so the digestive tract as a whole doesn’t work correctly. If you struggle with gut problems reach out to us and we can see if we can help you!
