Along with diarrhea, constipation, cramping- these, lesser known, signs may indicate that you have an imbalance within your gut biome. When there is an imbalance withing the gut biome your digestive process essentially malfunctions. In a simplified explanation, within our body we possess, “good” and “bad” bacteria. Eating a diet high in processed food, fast food, refined sugar, or white flour aids in the overgrowth of “bad,” bacteria causing an imbalance. This digestive malfunction can create inflammation, or cause food to not be digested fully. Undigested food can then begin to decay and ferment during their breakdown in our digestive tract. The results being- cramping, bloating, gas, burping, and above-mentioned symptom’s, etc.

In order to balance the bacteria within our gut biome we first need to remove the triggers. This refers back to the processed foods, refined sugar, etc. Then we focus on healing the system. This could include adding in beneficial bacteria by use of a pre/pro biotic, or consuming fermented foods (sauerkraut, kombucha, yogurt), healing the inflammation, and increasing whole foods/healthy fats.

With the help of a qualified nutritionist, finding balance with your lifestyle choices, and sleep hygiene; most digestive distress can be resolved.
