Healthy Gut – Healthy Mind
We often say ‘Trust your Gut’. There is a lot to this saying, have you ever felt nauseous or have a tension in your stomach area or get butterflies and can’t understand why?
Well intestinal tract is very sensitive to emotion. Extreme emotions for a long period of time can impact the gut. Feelings like anger, anxiety, sadness, stress, depression and worry all reap havoc on the gut.
If the gut weakens and it becomes leaky then we are not protected against unwanted bacteria, parasites and viruses. Harvard medical school published an article in September 2017 by Marcelo Campos which intriguingly mentioned that
‘Some studies show that leaky gut may be associated with other autoimmune diseases (lupus, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis), chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, allergies, asthma, acne, obesity and even mental illness’.
Promoting and encouraging the healthy flora in our gut is key. Food allergy testing is a great place to start and often people require colonic therapy to re-shape the gut and flush out unwanted toxins with coffee enema – book your consultation today with Ultimate Health Clinic.
