Gut Health Q & A

Naturkur Wellness Center

Why is digestive health so important?

Your digestive, or gut, health is one of the most important aspects of your health and wellness. Your digestive system, including your mouth, esophagus, stomach, and intestines, is where your body absorbs all its nutrients and eliminates its waste. A healthy digestive system is essential for optimal health.

An unhealthy gut can affect your hormonal, nervous, and immune systems. Many symptoms that you may not associate with digestion can be traced back to problems related to impaired nutrient absorption or “leaky gut.”

The gut is often referred to as the “second brain” because it has similar tissues as the brain and also creates some of the same chemicals produced by the brain. Such as the case with the brain, what happens in the gut affects the whole body.

What health conditions can be connected to gut health?

Many conditions, both those that are commonly thought of as digestive problems and those that are not, can be traced in some way back to gut health.

These conditions include:

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Metabolic disorders, including thyroid disorders
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Food allergies
  • Inflammation
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Weight gain
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Hepatitis
  • Toxicity
  • Imbalanced microbiome, or gut flora
  • Autism, ADHD, and other spectrum disorders
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis

A treatment plan that focuses on healing the gut can effectively treat or reverse many of these conditions.
