Our gut is sometimes called our second brain. That gut feeling—an urge or inkling that something feels wrong in your body—is a signal asking you to mind and take action.
Our gut plays a pivotal role in overall health, that’s why recurring symptoms shouldn’t be dismissed. Frequent acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, or bloating can be tell-tale signs of a gut-related problem. Even fatigue, skin problems, and food allergies can be indicators, too.
While some risk factors like genetics and age are beyond your control, you can still achieve a healthier gut by making more mindful choices. Here are some practical tips to live by:
- Eat less sugar and fats to decrease the bacterial strains linked with metabolic diseases like diabetes and heart problems.
- Eat more probiotics and fiber to lower the risk of irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut, diarrhea, constipation, food allergies, and other gut-related problems.
- To avoid acid reflux, eat smaller meals more often. Cut down on fatty foods, spicy foods, alcohol, coffee, tea, mint, and chocolate. Eat on schedule, and don’t sleep right after.
- Reduce psychological stress to avoid disruption of intestinal bacteria. Practice meditation, deep breathing, and other exercises that can help you block stressors.
- At least 7 hours of sleep every night can improve mood, mental performance, and gut health. Poor sleep increases the risk of gut inflammation.
- Regular exercise can improve microbiome diversity, which is good for overall health. 150 minutes of exercise weekly is good for weight control and heart health.
- Avoid overuse of antibiotics to prevent antibiotic resistance and microbiota damage. Antibiotics also kill beneficial bacteria, so taking probiotics can help compensate for this.
- Avoid overuse of acid blockers. They eventually disrupt gut balance and affect microbiome diversity over time. Constipation, diarrhea, and vomiting are some of its effects.
