How to Improve Gut Health
Get ready to unravel the secrets of improving your gut health! In this blog, I will discuss effective ways to improve your gut health, digestive system, immune system and life. I will provide practical tips and useful information. So, stay tuned as we explore the answer to the age-old question: “How to improve gut health?
Have you noticed that small changes in our daily routines can have a big impact on our overall health?
I have personally experienced various inflammatory bowel disease symptoms, and have helped many patients with similar health conditions. Through this, I have learned that each person’s path to improving their small intestine or gastrointestinal tract is unique. What works for one person may not work for another and I will explain why.
Learn more about what you should eat and what is causing your symptoms. This will show you exactly what to do to feel better.
What is the Best Diet for Gut Health?
Let’s start with a basic list of the best foods for gut health, and then but I’ll provide even better information. A diet rich in prebiotic foods tend to add helpful bacteria to your gut. Here is a list of some prebiotic foods.
- Chicory root
- Dandelion greens
- Jerusalem Artichoke
As I mentioned earlier, the path to improved gut health is unique for each individual. Understanding your specific dietary needs is crucial. Next, we’ll learn how to find the right foods for your gut health. This will help you make smart choices so you too can experience a wide range of health benefits.
I use the phrase, “Test, Don’t Guess” often in my practice. I strongly believe in this idea. I had irritable bowel syndrome since I was 10. However, it went away when I learned how to improve my gut health through my diet.
I only realized at age 35 that the food I was eating caused my many of my symptoms. That was 15 years of unnecessary suffering. You don’t need to make that same mistake.
The best diet for gut health was the one right for me. I ran a comprehensive food intolerance test on myself and learned precisely what foods were safe and unsafe. The best test that I have found covers TWO immune pathways, not just one, like many other labs.
The test I ran told me which proteins, fruits and vegetable’s, nuts and seeds, starches, and grains were safe and unsafe.
There are two main types of antibodies. The first type is IgG, which causes delayed reactions in the body. The second type is IgA, which can cause immediate or delayed responses in the gut. While IgG can manifest symptoms anywhere in the body, IgA primarily influences the gut.
Now, let’s delve into the complex realm of gluten sensitivity. It’s important to note that individuals can exhibit varying degrees of reactivity to this protein. While some may experience strong reactions, others may only have mild responses, while a fortunate few remain entirely unaffected.
Once individuals remove gluten and any other food intolerance from their diet, I often observe improvements in their weight loss struggles.
What Lifestyle Changes Can Help Improve Gut Health?
Now is the time to discover different lifestyle changes that can greatly affect your gut health and gut microbiome. To improve your health, learn how to take care of your gut. You can do this by making changes to your diet, managing stress, exercising, and improving your sleep habits.
Step 1: Identify which foods should be in your diet and which you should avoid.
Step 2: Learn the best way to nourish your gut with the right supplements for your body. I will expand on this in the next section.
Step 3: It is easier said then done for many people but reducing stress is vital to feeling healthy. There is one supplement that I have found to be extremely beneficial for people experiencing gut symptoms and stress. It is in my favorite gut supplements list below.
Step 4: Life is hectic, but I know resting and sleeping well are crucial to healing.
In conclusion, embracing a healthy lifestyle is paramount for nurturing your gut back to optimal health. Now, let’s transition to the next section, where we’ll explore the world of probiotics. We’ll explore the best probiotic strains and the importance of stool testing in deciding on your gut health routine.
What Probiotics are Best?
When looking for the best probiotics for your gut, remember that not all probiotics work the same for everyone’s gut health. While probiotics can work wonders for some, others may require specific anti-parasitic or antiviral support. Let’s explore the fascinating world of gut supplements and uncover which ones might be your key to vibrant well-being.
There are many probiotic options available. However, one form stands out from the rest. It has exceptional results in different people.
Many probiotics are destroyed by stomach acid before they can reach the intestines, where they are needed for their beneficial effects. These are not.
MegaSporeBiotic, a probiotic blend of 5 Bacillus spores, shows the ability to maintain a healthy gut barrier and immune function. Bacillus spores can stay inactive in tough conditions until they find better conditions, such as the human gut.
Once inside the large intestine, these dormant spores can change into their active, vegetative forms and begin colonizing in the gut. This unique blend of probiotics enhances the gut by reconditioning it.
To simplify this…. picture yourself swallowing a probiotic pill. It survives the entire way down to your gut. Once in your gut, it searches for and gets rid of harmful pathogens causing you symptoms.
I personally use these everyday on myself and my clients. But I never recommend taking them until we have completed proper stool testing. This way we can see the before and after. When I had constant upset stomachs I wanted to know what was in my gut causing my symptoms.
Many clients have food intolerances. They also have issues such as low good bacteria, harmful bacteria, yeast overgrowth, parasites, viruses, low digestive enzymes, or leaky gut. To simplify, determine what you have, remove it from your gut, and continue living life to the max.
When you receive a test, you will also receive a plan for food and gut healing. This plan will provide you with specific instructions on how to improve your well-being.
