The term gut health refers to a balanced digestive tract, free from infection and irritation. Processed foods, irritants, medications, and a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to a decrease in the good bacteria of the stomach and GI tract, resulting in decreased gut health.
Several steps can be used to improve the health of your digestive tract, including removing offending foods from your diet, as well as introducing probiotics and the appropriate supplements. Carefully follow the advice of an experienced, integrative medicine physician – such as Dr. Verma – is the safest and most effective method for restoring gut health. First, get the proper Gut health testing done to accurately diagnosis a myriad of conditions from leaky gut to IBD to IBS and more.
There is a wide range of gut health information available online, such as the eye-opening documentaries, What the Health and What’s With the Wheat. However, the best place for trustworthy gut health information will be through a board-certified physician, experienced in integrative medicine.
