how do i know if i have a healthy gut?

Are you someone who has been eating healthy, exercises often, or takes all the supplements they can but still feels fatigued, low in energy, and is just tired of being tired? This is for you!

If you’ve been working tirelessly on your health but haven’t seemed to reap the benefits then your gut may be the reason. An unhealthy gut can contribute to many symptoms, including:

  • Acne
  • Bloating
  • Foul gas
  • Stomach aches and pain
  • Leaky gut
  • Brain fog
  • Unintentional weight changes
  • Sleep problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Autoimmune conditions   
If this speaks to you, no need to worry anymore, I got you! There are many things you can do to improve your gut health, food being a major contributor. Please refer to my article, “Restoring your gut: foods to eat for a healthy microbiome”, for a list of foods that I recommend for optimal gut health. Along with food, it’s just as important to look at your habits and see how they’re contributing to your wellness. Habits such as meditating, journaling, reading, deep breathing, exercising, spending time in nature, and proper sleep hygiene all play a role in your wellness journey. I know this may seem overwhelming, so I recommend you focus on one habit, master it, and move onto the next habit. Taking small strides is the best way to encourage and sustain long-term change.
