Snowy Mountains Natural Health explores the detailed aspects that irritate and activate your immune system to a point it becomes symptomatic, problematic and potentially painful. We help your Gut Health!
Understanding what we eat, how we digest our food, absorb the nutrients and remove waste is important in understanding and addressing certain health issues. In addition to its digestive function, the Gut is involved in the immune response (the ‘gut-immune’ response with about 70% of our immune system found in the digestive tract) and in the function of the brain (the ‘gut-brain’ response). This is why gut health is integral to our overall health.
A recent Harvard study provides more detailed information on how gut health can improve your immune system and overall health and happiness.
There are many health problems that hinder the body’s capacity to carry out these vital processes and indicate that there are internal problems – such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, intestinal polyps, Crohn’s disease, reflux, bloating, heartburn, flatulence, constipation, diarrhoea and general digestive upsets.
Digestive health issues are on the rise, with antacid medication being the 3rd most popular medical prescription. 1 in 2 people present some sign of gastrointestinal dysfunction – which may be as simple as not fully emptying their bowels every day, lots of gas or as severe as colon cancer. Either way, it is vital that you look after “your insides” for reasons that go beyond the gut! Research indicates that the significance of the digestive system is more complex than once thought.
