Healthy living starts with the gut! Your gastrointestinal system has been called the ‘seat of emotion’ the heart of the immune system’ and the ‘soul of detoxification’ just to name a few, so with so many roles, you can see the importance of proper gut health.
It is here that we absorb nutrients, excrete waste, produce vitamins, neurotransmitters and even hormones. Such, having a healthy gut is key to optimal living. Unfortunately, a compromised gut leads to inflammation, increased infection, poor mood and mental health as well as the typical GI symptoms of gas, bloating, cramps and inconsistent stool.
What can cause a compromised GI system? Everything from stress, antibiotics, poor food choices, infection, even if you were vaginal or C-section will affect your current GI health.
At NatLiving your doctor will start with a health history, and will do some in-house lab testing to help us get a snap shot of your current gastro-intestinal health and will formulate a plan with you to restore and revitalize your gut health.
