Lets talk about poop!
If your doctor never asked you about your bowel movements, do me a favour and find yourself one who does..
This is one of my favourite topics to talk about with my patients, and one of the most important ones!
I am starting a gut health series… ALL questions are welcome!
Your poop tells me whats going inside your body- I often ask consistency, colour, frequency, straining, blood, mucus, gas, pain, bloating and SO much more! Why is that important you ask?
Did you know…
- 70% of our immune system is in the gut
- The gut is our second brain- not only does it have a major nervous system BUT did you know different gut bacteria (probiotics) affect different pathways in our brain?
- Our gut bacteria LITERALLY controls our brain.. on some level.
You have probably heard before “all diseases start in the gut”. Just hang on with this thought for a second. We are not only what we eat, but also what we absorb. It is so important to optimize digestion, reduce gut inflammation and make sure your get bacteria is healthy and happy. The gut is linked to so many other systems, but you knew that as well because we know of the wholistic approach and how complex it can be… Are you interested in knowing how the different gut bacteria affect your brain? Which gut bacteria increase cravings? Why having proper poop is essential for estrogen clearance? what is the connection between the gut and skin?
I will be talking about different topics:
-Gut and brain
-Gut and hormones
-Gut and weight loss
-Gut and skin health
Also, if you are interested about how to optimize your digestion, keep an eye for the next posts series- I will be discussing herbs, fibre, probiotics and other supplements!
