Belly Bloating. Do you wake up with a flat belly and by the end of the day, look like you’re 6 months pregnant?
Have you ever eaten something, then a within a few hours, are so bloated you can’t button your pants?
These symptoms are not normal.
Causes May Include:
- Low Stomach Acid
- Low Levels of Digestive Enzymes
- SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
- h.pylori, Candida, and parasite infections
- Overuse of Antibiotics (including antibiotics in food/animal products)
- Processed food/Refined sugars/flours
- Pesticides (roundup)
Poor gut health does not effectively escort estrogen metabolites out of your body. Instead, they stay in circulation, causing Estrogen Dominance (think fibroids, heavy periods, sore breasts, pms, endometriosis)
Part of your conversion of T4 thyroid hormone into the stronger, more active T3 form, occurs in your gut – but may be compromised if your gut is unhealthy.
An inflamed, unhealthy gut promotes unhealthy bacteria that can change your levels of ghrelin (hormone that makes you feel hungry) and leptin (hormone that signals when you’re full). It can also impact on the food you crave and your taste receptors.
Fixing the Problem:
Put away processed foods
Improve the level of your stomach acid level by drinking 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or ½ lemon in a glass of warm/ lukewarm water upon rising.
Take a full spectrum Digestive enzyme right before a meal, that will help you break down and absorb a wide range of ingredients.
Eat fermented foods - good bacteria may prevent harmful bacteria from attaching to your gut lining and help to trigger proteins that protect the lining of your gut.
Reduce stress and get adequate sleep. Powerful neural connections between your brain and belly mean that stress can have an enormous impact on your gut health.
