5 Gut Healing Foods and Supplements By Karen Morris
- Karen Morris
It is very common for a new client to come to me with concerns of anxiety, stress and food intolerances. For issues like these (and many others) the gut is the first place to start in order to heal. Our gut is directly linked to our brain through millions of neurotransmitters and nerves and for this reason, it makes perfect sense that when our gut is unhappy, our brains can end up being unhappy too. This can lead to serious issues such as depression and unstable emotions.
These below 5 foods and supplements are my go-to when a client is in need of some gut-healing.
Chamomile – Chamomile is anti-inflammatory and has been used for many years due to the healing benefits it provides. It is full of antioxidants and can ease digestive discomfort and reduce bloating.
Gentian – Gentian acts to strengthen weakened digestive paths and help with flatulence, bloating and low stomach acid.
Slippery Elm – Slippery Elm acts by easing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhoea and anal fissures.
Bone Broth – Organic beef or chicken bone broth is a powerful source of gut healing goodness. Bone broth can reduce inflammation, which is a common cause of gut distress. It is rich in nutrients and boosts immunity. Venison bone broth is a personal favourite as it is a nutrient dense option that heals the body and warms the soul!
Probiotics – Probiotics support gut healing and gut health because they supply the gut with billions of good gut bacteria. This good bacteria supports digestive health and recovery, can improve immune function, and replace the good bacteria that is destroyed through the use of antibiotics. I have a wide variety of probiotics in my clinic which are available to you, why not give me a call on 02 9555 5117 to discuss which is best for you.
