When a common “belly ache” becomes a regular weekly event, it could mean a serious gut imbalance that can have far reaching consequences for the entire health of your body. If you’re experiencing frequent stomach pain, don’t chalk it up to having a “sensitive” stomach. Seek out care to avoid compromising your long-term health.
Some examples of previously undiagnosed digestive issues that require medical attention are as follows: Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Disease, pathogens and parasites growing in the gut, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and “leaky gut syndrome”. Symptoms of these conditions, along with many other issues, can include: constipation, diarrhea, bloating, abdominal pain, acid reflux, anxiety and neurological issues, skin issues and new food allergies.
Taking gut issues seriously can correlate to great health for a lifetime. The stomach plays many crucial roles in protecting the overall well-being of our bodies, starting with the intake and absorption of nutrients and water. However, few people actually realize that a healthy gut plays a huge part in maintaining the proper functions of your immune system and your brain. Recent medical breakthroughs have shown that the balance of friendly gut microbes that live in your digestive systems correlate with optimized performance in your entire body. The good gut “bugs” are your first line of defense against harmful viruses and bacteria. They also safe-guard proper communication from your brain to body, not only for proper digestion, but in the regulation of mood and managing stress levels.
