Understand the Importance of Your Microbiome
There are a lot of things your run-of-the-mill physicians won’t talk to you about. Instead of working with you to learn what is causing you to feel tired, gain weight, lose sleep, or experience a number of other uncomfortable and potentially harmful conditions, they eagerly prescribe you a toxic solution from Big Pharma and send you on your way. The truth is, optimal health starts with something I’m certain your doctor hasn’t spoken about. What is it and how can it keep you healthy?
It’s All About the Microbiome
In every person’s gut, there is a unique system that is essential to your overall health: the microbiome. This intricate network of yeast, bacteria, fungi, and even viruses plays a major role in keeping you healthy. Unhealthy microbiomes can be linked to allergies, digestive issues, migraine headaches, mood disorders, and more.
Protect Your Gut
Your gut is the most significant part of the immune system, and when it comes to weakening it, medications are one of the biggest offenders. This means that when doctors prescribe medications — even those found over-the-counter, your immunity can take a hit. Another reason your gut-based immunity might be under attack is the foods you eat; diets high in sugar, saturated fats, and processed foods wreak havoc on your microbiome, potentially leading to digestive problems, allergies, and even weight gain.
There’s Good News
Whenever possible, avoid toxic medications; instead, use food to fuel your health. Stick to organic, whole foods that will preserve the diversity of bacteria in your gut. Avoid alcoholic beverages and sugar (or foods that are recognized by your body as sugar) and try to incorporate fermented foods such as kimchi in your diet to encourage the growth of healthy gut flora.
Unlike traditional medical practitioners, I’m willing to explore the root causes of whatever it is that’s making you feel less than your best. If your microbiome is the reason for your discomfort, we can find an answer that will restore your gut health and, ultimately, restore your overall health, as well. When you’re ready to have energy, say goodbye to pain, and find relief from your allergy symptoms, give my office a call and schedule a consultation. I look forward to helping you feel your best.
Yours in health,
