As uncomfortable as it might be to be bloated, gassy, constipated, or have diarrhea—these are all just symptoms of an internal imbalance. If left unchecked your declining gut health can negatively impact your whole body health.
You Might See Signs In Your Skin
If you notice an increase in red blotches, acne, breakouts, eczema, or any other visible change in the health of your skin it may be a sign that your gut bacteria is out of balance. Having a stool sample test is the most effective way of determining gut health so do that first before heading to a dermatologist.
Pain And Inflammation
Inflammation is the leading cause of pain, as well as many acute and chronic health conditions. If you are feeling an increase in pain that seems somewhat unexplainable, or worsened levels of chronic pain it may be a sign that your gut bacteria is imbalanced. If left imbalanced you may experience widespread internal inflammation, a decrease in immunity, and an increased risk for heart, kidney, and chronic health conditions.
To rapidly boost your gut health increase the amounts of probiotics in your diet by drinking kombucha and eating fermented foods such as kimchee, miso, sauerkraut, and probiotic-infused dairy. You can also take probiotic supplements, which don’t always work as effectively as changing what you eat and drink.
