Signs You May Have An Unhealthy Gut
Thursday, 10 December 2020

 The bacteria in the digestive tracts are essential for digestion, building up your immune system, absorbing vitamins and minerals that you come into contact with, and making food less likely harmful to you. All of these things are possible if you have a healthy gut. Also, having a healthy gut has been linked to lower levels of obesity, diabetes, and other potentially harmful ailments. 

Your diet plays an important role, but sticking to a healthy diet isn’t as easy as you might think, especially if you have a busy life. If you find yourself missing meals because you're always on the go, your body may not have time to digest the foods you consume properly, which results in the growth of harmful bacteria and toxins, leading to chronic health issues. 

 Reasons Why You May Develop Unhealthy Gut 

An unhealthy gut usually comes from an unhealthy diet, which is usually high in fat and sugar. Most people tend to eat more than they should, especially when they’re trying to lose weight. Hence, if you consume a lot of sugar or fat regularly, you're probably suffering from an unhealthy gut.

An unhealthy gut can also occur because a person has poor digestion. If a person cannot fully absorb nutrients into their body, they may suffer from an imbalance in their digestive system. This results from the body not processing foods the way it should, which causes them to feel weak and unable to perform at their maximum potential. 
Signs Your Gut Has A Problem 
There are some good reasons why people worry about having a healthy gut. One of the most important reasons is that it's always an indicator of a well-functioning body. 
So, if you're wondering if you have one, here are some of the major signs that you have gut issues as suggested by Dr Ruscio and other gut doctors:  
1. You Developed Chronic Illnesses 
If you find yourself suffering from an unhealthy gut, you're more likely to suffer from chronic diseases that can affect your overall health. For example, if you're prone to allergies, an unhealthy gut can cause you to develop allergies that are much worse than they would be without the condition. This is because your body cannot effectively combat the allergens, allowing you to react in the worst possible ways. By improving your health and diet, you can help prevent the negative effects of these conditions, keeping your body healthy and strong. 
If you do see any signs of inflammation, you may also want to check into your digestive tract. If you find yourself having chronic digestive problems, then there could be some sort of imbalance in your gut bacteria. If this is the case, you should consider taking natural supplements, such as probiotics, as they’re essential for our digestive systems. As a tip, you should look for supplements that are made from all-natural ingredients and have been clinically tested. 
2. You Experience Frequent Bloating And Cramping 
If you ever feel pain or discomfort in your belly, this could be a sign that your digestive system is under pressure. You can tell if you have too many toxins in your colon when you get pains, aches, and bloating. You may also notice that your stool turns dark yellow. All of these mean that your digestive tract is going through some serious work and needs to be treated. 
The first cause of bloating and stomach pain is a poor diet. Eating too many fast foods, junk foods, processed foods, and fatty foods may contribute to constipation and bloating, especially if you're on high-stomach acid reflux medication. 
To resolve this problem, you must eat a balanced diet that’s full of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables and plenty of whole grains and lean proteins, such as chicken, turkey, fish, lamb, beef, venison, and other types of lean meats. You should also avoid refined sugars, refined oils, and processed carbohydrates, like white bread and rice, as they contribute to a poor digestive system. 
Frequent bloating and cramping can also be caused by stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety may also be responsible for heartburn, indigestion, stomach upset, bloating, gas, bloating, and cramps.  
3. You Lack Energy 
One of the most common signs that you may have an unhealthy gut is a lack of energy. Many people with an unhealthy gut are more often to feel tired and weak throughout the day and may experience fatigue during the night. 
If one’s digestive organs aren’t functioning properly, one is going to be sluggish and have problems with digestion and absorbing essential nutrients, which, in turn, leads to a lack of energy. 
4. You Get Heartburn 
Heartburn is a painful and burning sensation that can be felt in the chest. Heartburn is caused by acid reflux, which is a condition in which the lower esophageal sphincter doesn’t close properly. The stomach acids, bile salts, and digestive enzymes that normally flow back and forth between the esophagus and the stomach cause discomfort in the chest. Other things that increase the risk of having heartburn are excessive weight and eating too much sugary and spicy food. Causes of heartburn can also include obesity and excessive consumption of alcohol or caffeine.
Eating a balanced diet that’s low in fat and salt may help prevent heartburn. It’ll also prevent constipation, bloating, and flatulence. Healthy eating habits also include drinking enough water and reducing stress. This will help keep the gastrointestinal tract, including the stomach, gut, and intestines, functioning correctly.
Final Thoughts
It's easy to see some signs that you may have an unhealthy gut. If you notice any of these things consistently happening, you should start a high fiber and water diet so you can flush out the toxins in your system.  
Although there are many reasons why you may have a poor, unhealthy gut, you should know that changing your diet and making changes in your lifestyle may help you have good health in no time at all. By doing so, your digestive system will thank you for it, and your health will thank you for it, too.
