Why is Gut Health Important?

The gut is an important system within your body that, when out of balance, can severely affect your body functions and health. As the main entry point for nutrients into your body, an unhealthy gut can affect your health across your body including cardiovascular, and mental health.

Your gut is connected to almost every part in your body, and so, plays a vital role in keeping you healthy and happy. Your entire digestive system relies on having a balance of good and bad bacteria. The foods we eat, and our lifestyle all effect this balance. An imbalance can cause food intolerances, mental health problems, and other diseases. When you have a good balance, your gut will continue sending positive signals to your brain improving your overall health and happiness. 

Research has shown that the gut and brain are closely linked, effecting both our overall health and mood. Which is why it is common for those with gut and bowel disorders like IBS to experience mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression. With millions of tiny nerves constantly telling your brain how your gut is feeling, it is no wonder a healthy gut leads to a happier healthier you. 

That is why at Inner Health our Dietitians work to balance your gut, improving your overall health and wellbeing. Through our gut and bowel health programs we will help you find manageable solution to improving your gut health and overall happiness.

Common gut health related disorders.

The digestive system is very sensitive to extreme changes. If you have dramatically changed your diet, whether it be for health or weight-loss reasons, or you have certain intolerances that in the past have made it difficult to eat the foods your body requiresyour gut health could have been tipped off balance. This can cause many symptoms that lower your quality of life and ruin your relationship with food. Fortunately, they are treatable. With the Dietitians from Inner Health you will find relief from these symptoms: 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a condition that is experienced differently from person to person. It affects the large intestines causing a combination of abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation or more. Unfortunately, for most, IBS is a chronic condition and will be something they have to manage on a long-term basis.  

Fortunately, IBS can be managed. With a diet plan from Inner Health combined with lifestyle changes and stress management you will be able to manage and alleviate most of the symptoms from IBS in all but the most serious of cases.  

Haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids are veins that have swelled within your anus, potentially due to straining or increased pressure within the anus from pregnancy. It is common for a haemorrhoid to occurGenerally, they can be classified in two camps, either internal or externalNeither will cause much discomfort in most cases, and often disappear on their own. Occasionally a clot can form within the haemorrhoid which can be painful.  

With a diet program from Inner Health you can find relief from repeat haemorrhoidsCombining exercise and increased water intake with a new diet you can reduce the amount of haemorrhoids you experience and reduce any pain or discomfort you may experience.  

Diarrhoea & Constipation

When it occurs infrequently, occasional diarrhoea is not a problem. However, if it occurs frequently it could lead to dehydration or other serious health problems. It often occurs due to bacterial infections or viruses, or due to chronic conditions like IBSIf you experience frequent diarrhoea it may be a sign of bad gut health.   

Constipation can often be prevented simply by changing your diet. If you reduce your consumption of dairy, alcohol, and caffeine, you may also reduce the occurrence of constipation. However, sometimes health conditions can cause constipation including diabetes, IBS and hypothyroidism. If you regularly experience constipation talk to the Inner Health Dietitians.

Bloating & Indigestion

Bloating and indigestion can be painful for those who experience it. While you are bloated your belly will feel swollen, and often leads to excessive gas productionIndigestion includes discomfort or a burning sensation in your chest. Both generally occur soon after you have eaten or drunkUsually both are conditions that you do not need to worry about. However, if they occur regularly, they may require a diet change to alleviate.  

Excess Wind & Flatulence

Excessive flatulence can be uncomfortable or embarrassing. It also my indicate issues within your diet or lifestyle. While there is no normal amount of times a person will pass wind, if it seems more excessive than normal there may be problems with your gut health. More wind than usual could also relate to health conditions such as IBS.  

Crohn's Disease

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that can lead to abdominal pain, fatigue, diarrhoea, malnutrition and weight loss. They symptoms of Crohn’s disease can range from mild to severe, but aren’t always present, instead appearing in occasional flare-upsUnfortunately, there is no known cure for Crohn’s disease, however it can be managed through dietary changes. As Crohn’s disease affects each person differently, it is important that your new diet is tailored to your individual needs.
