Do you experience bloating? Constipation? Diarrhoea? Indigestion? Nausea? Abdominal cramping? When our digestion is compromised, it reduces our ability to absorb our nutrients in our food thus can have a huge impact on our overall health and energy levels.
Our digestive tract is colonised by millions of healthy bacteria that assist the functioning of our digestive system, immune system and nervous system. Chronic use of medications such as antibiotics, steroids and the contraceptive pill or eating a diet high in processed foods can upset the balance of our digestive tract, leading to an overgrowth of ‘bad’ bacteria resulting in an imbalance called ‘dysbiosis’.
Chronic dysbiosis in the digestive tract can lead to inflammation and gut ‘permeability’ which causes digestive symptoms such as bloating, constipation and diarrhoea as well as an increase in food sensitivities, weight gain, skin problems and mood disturbances.
