I have posted some of the main points around the Gut Brain axis connection in the instastory!
It can be hard to conceptualise how the gut can affect brain function/mood and so I hope that it has been summarized in simple terms in the instastory!
☝️remember that the brain controls everything from the neck down !One of the earliest signs of a poorly functioning brain is poor digestive function!
☝️symptoms of impaired gut brain acid include:
👉Constipation/irregular bowel movements👉bloating/gas (burping/wind from back passage)👉bloating after eating 👉multiple food intolerances 👉feeling that food is stuck in the gut
If You have been having digestive symptoms for a long period of time and/or they are progressively worsening, your brain is not working and you need to take this seriously!
Laxatives are not the solution to constipation, Rennies Bloateze is not the solution to abdominal distention nor Nexium to reflux , nor anti-spasmodics to cramping !
These only provide (temporary) relief of symptoms, they don’t address the root CAUSE! In fact, simply blunting the symptoms like this for months or years can do more harm than good, masking the severity of said symptoms.
☝️Remember symptoms/signs are always red flags to alert us that something is not working!
I highly recommend stool testing but again, as the cost can be prohibitive , my Gut Restoration Program is a good start!
Hope the info in instastory is of use to some of you 🙂#poop #gut #functionalmedicine
