How do you know when it’s time to focus on gut health?

Plain and simple: a SYMPTOM

A chronic symptom or symptoms is a key indicator it’s time to focus on improving your gut health. For example, low melatonin levels are a window into poor gut health as the gut contains at least 400 times more melatonin than the pineal gland. (1) If you’re having trouble staying asleep or if you feel tired after sleeping several hours this could be an indication your melatonin levels are imbalanced and a good sign you need to focus on gut health. 

3 Quick Tips to Improve Your Gut Health TODAY:

1) Listen to your gut.

Sometimes our mind gives us bad advice (like staying with that old boyfriend for too long, ha!) The gut and brain are connected through the vagus nerve and they communicate when there is distress. Tune in to your body's discomfort signals. Your gut will tell you when it’s unhappy.  Awareness is your ally!

2) Record what you eat in a journal for two weeks, and look for patterns. This is a hot commodity I provide my students in my program GUT REVIVAL. Journaling creates your body’s unique blueprint. Start thinking about the following:

  • What did you eat?
  • How much did you eat?
  • When did you eat?
  • How did you feel immediately after eating?
  • How did you feel a few hours later?

3) Investigate taking a daily probiotic supplement

  • Dosages vary for healthy maintenance vs. support for gut issues. Check with your Dr. before starting any new supplement.
  • Consider the packaging, fillers, and strains
  • Opt for non-GMO certified
  • For more information, check out http://internationalprobiotics.org
  • Consider starting out with one of my favorite & personally tested brands-> MegaSporeBiotics or Neuro Biologix  (HOT TIP: you should be rotating your probiotic supplement every 3 months to promote gut diversity!)
