Gut Problems

Digestive Health

 We all know someone with heartburn, diarrhea, an ulcer, irritable bowel, but what is the cause of these things?.

Common gut problems are:

  • Re-flux or Heartburn – hot or burning feeling rising up from the center of the abdomen area and into the chest under the breastbone or sternum.
  • Peptic Ulcer –  which are sores in the lining of the stomach or first stretch of the small intestine.
  • Gallstones – stone moving out of the gallbladder gets stuck—blocking the flow of bile.
  • Lactose Intolerance – you experience bloating, abdominal pain, or diarrhea.
  • Diverticulitis – abnormal bulges called diverticulitis somewhere in the wall of their intestinal tract.
  • Inflammatory Bowl Disease – complain of abdominal pain and diarrhea and sometimes experience anemia, rectal bleeding, weight loss, or other symptoms.
  • Coeliac Disease – Sufferers are unable to eat gluten (a protein found in rye, barley, wheat, and more) triggering an attack on their small intestine.
  • Constipation – experiencing discomfort and can’t make your bowels move.

It’s normal to get a stomach ache now and then, like after a super-spicy meal or before a big job interview.  But gut woes that stick around for more than a few days could signal bigger problems anything from lactose intolerance to Ulcers.
Gut problems can be hard to diagnose as a lot of symptoms overlap like pain, diarrhea, bloating.

The gut absorbs foods, eliminates toxins, produces several hormones and neurotransmitters, and has some crucial immunological tasks.  Not too bad for a slimy, wrinkled, worm-like organ located somewhere in the bottom of your belly, right?

But in all seriousness: many diseases and symptoms can be traced back to poor gut health.  We’re talking about auto-immune diseases, arthritis, weight problems, skin issues such as acne and psoriasis, migraines and even some psychological illnesses.
