WHY IS GUT HEALTH IMPORTANT?
A healthy gut is key for your health and wellness, as it is responsible for ensuring our body’s metabolism. However, the balance of the bacterial flora in the gut can easily be affected by the intake of toxins such as alcohol, cigarette smoke and foods from over-fertilized soil, and stress. Often, the body can reset the balance itself, but sometimes these issues need treatment, especially as they are linked to a variety of chronic diseases. These include autoimmune diseases, emotional stress, cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
WHEN SHOULD I SEEK TREATMENT IF I EXPERIENCE SYMPTOMS OF AN UNHEALTHY GUT?
The sooner you seek medical diagnosis and treatment, the better as sometimes you can have issues without experiencing any symptoms. Saying that, the most obvious symptoms of an unhealthy gut are repeated or chronic bloating, gas, diarrhea, stomach pain or nausea. If you experience sudden weight change, either gaining or losing weight, this may also be an indication of an unhealthy gut. At NeoGen Clinic, all our treatments are minimally invasive and based on a holistic understanding of you and your body. Book a consultation with us if you experience any of these symptoms, or if you just want to do a preventive check up.
