The Importance of a Balanced, Healthy Gut 

Inside your gut is an ecosystem containing trillions of microorganisms that have an impact of your digestion, your immune system, and your overall well-being. When in good balance, your gut microbiome supports healthy bodily functions and keeps you feeling great. However, too much bad gut bacteria can slow down digestion, make you feel sluggish, and even contribute to depression.  


A Balanced Gut Is Essential for Achieving Optimal Health  

A healthy gut is the cornerstone of holistic medicine. If you’re struggling with a chronic health problem or emotional issues, one of the first places we’ll investigate is your gut. By making lifestyle changes and increasing the number of good bacteria in your gut, you can set the foundation for healing your body and helping it thrive. 

Poor Gut Health Can Lead to Digestive Disorders

Too much bad bacteria in your gut can lead to common digestive issues, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, acid reflux, and stomach cramps. 

Your Gut Is the Key to a Healthy Heart 

Your gut and heart health are linked. Some types of gut bacteria contribute to high blood pressure, heart disease, lower levels of good cholesterol, and higher risk of stroke. 

Your Gut and Brain Communicate With Each Other 

When you’re stressed or upset, this can change the microbiome of your gut. Alternatively, an imbalanced gut can negatively impact your emotions and sensory processing. 

An Imbalanced Gut Can Lead to Obesity in Adults 

Your gut affects your hormones, metabolism, and energy levels. An imbalance can make you more likely to gain weight and makes shedding weight more difficult.
