I am sorry to tell you this, but the chances are rather high that most people have a battle going on inside of their gut! No worries though, we can help you win the Battle of the Bugs! You can not necessarily see the battle but you can be feeling it! Some bug in your gut symptoms can be diarrhea, cramps, frequent urinary tract infections, bloating and vomiting.
So what exactly is this battle that is going on inside of our gut? The fight is between the bacteria that resides in the gut. There are some good bacteria, and bad bacteria and both sides are fighting for supremacy. When the bad guys win, that is when you will experience the type of symptoms mentioned above. On the other hand, there are good bacteria that will help ward off pathogens that cause bad but symptoms and illnesses like the flu and frequent colds. These good guys are working for you not against you!
Having good gut health can be the difference between being health or being ill, or even between gaining or losing weight. This is because the bad bacteria release toxins that cause inflammation. Inflammation is known to be the start of almost every chronic disease. Furthermore, if someone has a condition known as leaky gut, where the intestinal track may have holes, this also releases toxins into the bloodstream- No Bueno!
What can be done to protect the gut? Nutrition can play a significant role in gut health by incorporating probiotic-rich foods or probiotic supplements to help the beneficial bacteria fight off the bad guys. Also important is to reduce sugar and starch intake because sugar feeds the bad bugs.
If the gut bug balance is severely off, you may want to consider taking a comprehensive stool test to learn what is needed to restore a proper balance which may prevent future illnesses. We offer a high-quality Comprehensive Stool Test that is far more advanced than any other stool analysis profile. It uses OMP (Ova & Parasites Microscopic Exam) to identify microbiota with 100% accuracy including anaerobes, a previously immeasurable area of the gut environment. With our Comprehensive Stool Test Kit, You Can Win the Battle of the Bugs For Your Gut Health! Find out what is going on inside of your gut!
