Micro Habits for Gut Health

Micro Habits for Gut Health

Whether you’re wanting better digestion, clearer skin, more energy, or a more balanced mood, none of this will happen without a happy gut. So remember these simple everyday micro-habits to support your gut:

  1. Stay hydrated (your digestive juices depend on it!)
  2. Eat the rainbow (for antioxidants & fiber)
  3. Try ground flax, chia, or hemp seeds (healthy fats to reduce inflammation)
  4. Boost magnesium (particularly if you tend toward constipation)
  5. Keep moving (exercise enhances the diversity of the gut microbiome)

Bloating Can Have Many Causes >


Bloating is not normal. If it doesn’t resolve with simple strategies, it could be a sign of something else, such as:

  •  Parasites
  •  Low stomach acid
  •  Gut motility issues
  •  H.pylori overgrowth
  •  Low digestive enzymes
  •  Dysbiosis (disrupted gut microbiome)
  •  Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  •  Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIFO)
  •  Leaky gut (increased permeability)
 

This is not an exhaustive list! These are only the issues that are specific to the gut, but bloating can also be caused by 🌸hormones, 😩stress, or 🍷alcohol consumption.
