How I and My Husband Followed Natural Therapies to Help with GERD
Total years in practice:
Gut health is such a huge topic! There are books written about it because it’s so important to our overall health. Our gut is even known as our “second brain.”
This is just a very simplified overview. As a disclaimer, I am not a doctor. But I have researched a lot and am treating my own leaky gut successfully.
This year has been all about exploring gut health for my husband and me. I learned about a natural Leaky Gut course that we studied and implemented. The results were really good!
Symptoms of Leaky Gut
Our gut health affects every area of our lives. If your gut is off at all, it can cause so many health issues. According to Bliss Health Coaching, some of the issues include:
What is Leaky Gut?
Our guts are made to have tight junctions that create a seal around our stomach and gut lining. If we eat things that our bodies don’t like such as sugar, grain or dairy, then it breaks these tight junctions down over time. Little particles then leak out of our gut. Thus the name “leaky gut.”
There are several types of leaky gut. Some different gut types are immune gut, toxic gut, and gastric gut to name a few.
Short Personal Story
I found out once I started on this journey that I have toxic gut because I had my gallbladder removed about 20 years ago. This puts a strain on the liver because the gallbladder and liver work together with bile production and recycling.
So I wanted to learn how to heal my gut and protect my liver from not having a gallbladder to work with it.
