Gut Health Q&A

What are the signs of poor gut health?

Poor gut health can affect your life in many ways. Some common symptoms are: 

  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloating
  • Heartburn
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Extreme food cravings (sugar cravings are especially common) 
  • Losing or gaining weight without trying
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Many people who have gut health problems regularly experience several (or more) of these symptoms. They may not realize that those issues are all connected, and that’s why so many people with gut health problems go undiagnosed and continue to suffer. 

What causes gut health problems? 

Gut health problems often stem from an imbalance in the gut microbiome, the ecosystem of tiny organisms found inside your stomach and intestines (especially the large intestine). Your gut microbiome contains countless bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses. 

The balance of these microorganisms is unique to your DNA. If your gut microbiome doesn’t maintain its delicate balance, gut health problems may develop.  

Research suggests that an imbalanced gut microbiome may be a leading factor in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and other gut disorders. 

Additionally, poor gut health can directly cause or contribute to hormone problems, stress levels, and many other problems. 

How can I get better gut health?

Gut health and whole-body health go hand-in-hand. Without good gut health, you never achieve the best bodywide health. 

At Ageless Regenerative Medical, the gut health experts help you balance your gut microbiome, relieve gut problems, and achieve the great whole-person wellness you deserve.

The team starts with simple lab tests and a comprehensive health history to identify problems like food sensitivities. This can guide your diagnosis and gut health improvement plan. 

Often, the team recommends a combination strategy for gut health improvement, including:

  • Taking probiotics
  • Taking prebiotics
  • Taking daily multivitamins
  • Avoiding known trigger foods
  • Avoiding inflammatory foods that contain gluten, sugar, and dairy
  • Practicing stress management techniques
  • Prescription medication (where needed) 

Gut health issues are disruptive and frustrating. If problems like abdominal pain, cramping, and bowel issues are starting to control your life, you could just need a new approach to gut health. Education and habit transformations can work wonders for gut health, with long-lasting benefits.
