Gut Health with Probiotics and Natural Remedies

Our digestive system works hard all day turning our food into energy, extracting nutrients from our food, and getting rid of everything our body doesn’t need. Our gut is the “nervous system” of our digestive system. It contains a network of more than 100 million neurons and can help us digest independently from our brain. Our gut is also home to tens of trillions of bacteria, some are “bad” but most are “good.” Probiotics is another word for “good bacteria” and helps to keep the “bad” bacteria at bay while balancing our digestive health. 

Sometimes our gut bacteria can become imbalanced and cause digestive discomfort, intestinal acidity, diarrhea, constipation, and other serious symptoms. Balancing intestinal flora is an important because it is vital to forming tools and maintaining immunity. Taking a probiotic can help to replace and balance “good bacteria” and our digestive system. Probiotics can be found in yogurt, sauerkraut, miso soup, kefir, and tempeh. In addition, probiotics can be taken in supplement form and are an easy way to add probiotics to your diet. 

Herbal formulas which help support gut health include Pau d’Arco which is a powerful anti-fungal herb and is used to clean the colon, yeast, and parasites found in the intestinal tract. Peppermint has also been shown to have anti-bacterial properties and is used for indigestion, relieves gas, nausea, and vomiting. Peppermint stimulates the gallbladder to secret bile which the body uses to digest fats. Garlic also has anti-bacterial properties which benefit the intestines. 

Other natural ways to improve gut health includes exercise which helps keep the colon moving. Chewing food thoroughly will help to avoid overwhelming the digestive system. De-stressing is important as well, stress can often make digestive issues worse. Eating a fiber-rich diet will help the digestive system to run smoothly and promote regularity.
