Enemies on the inside, they always take us by surprise. So in today’s video we’re gonna talk about the enemy. You may not be aware of the enemy inside your gut,
and we’re gonna discuss the signs of an unhealthy gut. First, we’ll talk about the gut brain connection and how that plays a role in what’s called the gut microbiome. Then I’m gonna give you seven signs that your gut may be out to get you. And at the very end of the video, I’m gonna give you my tips on what you can do to fight off that challenge so you don’t have that enemy growing inside.
Guys, let’s talk about poop. As recently as 50 years ago, the gal was thought about not a big deal, little organ there that makes you poop and not a big deal. But only recently how we seen exactly how the gut plays a role in everything, including what’s called the brain gut connection. It’s that connection between what’s going on here and what’s going on here that affects what’s going on in your entire body as well,
including what’s called the gut microbiome. Now the gut microbiome is home to trillions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, constantly interacting and talking to each other to see exactly what’s going on, saying, Hey, what’s up players? What’s going on here? Hope you’re doing well. And to see exactly what is going on with the interaction between what you eat,
the environment and inside your body as well. And that gut back your biome plays a significant role in terms of making you feel healthy or not healthy as well. And there are many facets of the modern life that really affect and cause your gut mark, your volume to be out of whack, whether it’s stress, lack of sleep, poor quality choices in diet,
and including things that may be helpful like taking antibiotics. This all plays a role in shaping how your GI tract is, and this in turn can affect other things outside the gut, including your mood, your hair, your skin, joint issues, brain fog and other things going on that are outside the primary facet of what’s inside your GI truck. And there are a number of ways that your gut is telling you,
screaming to you that your gut is outta whack. Here are some signs that your gut may be out to get you. Number one, you have extreme food cravings, especially for sugar. That means your body is so dependent on sugar that you develop these cravings for foods that are very high in sugar and very bad carbohydrates as well. This is a sign that your gut GI tract is totally outta whack cuz eating too much sugar and bad carbs causes the bad bacteria to proliferate and causes more cravings for those particular foods.
Number two is unintentional weight loss or weight gain fluctuations in your weight. Even a weight loss or weight gain can be a sign of an unhealthy gut microbiome. Number three, you might be getting migraine headaches. There are some research to suggest that migraine headaches could be a symptom or a sign of an imbalance, gut bacteria as well. And there are studies to suggest that people have frequent migraines may also have gastrointestinal disorders.
Number four, your mood is up and down. Sometimes you’re happy, sometimes you’re sad, sometimes you depressed, sometimes you’re overjoyed. Now if you have an underlying psychological problem, different story, that’s not you, that could be a sign of changes going on inside your GI tract or your gut microbiome and a gut that’s out of balance can certainly contribute to anxiety and depression.
Number five, your skin ain’t happy. We know that there are manifestations of the GI tract that can go on your skin with their acne, psoriasis, other autoimmune diseases. Sometimes that could actually be the first sign of what’s going on inside your GI tract. Number six, you’re constantly tired. Now, there are a lot of reasons why people are tired,
but one of them is a bacteria inside your GI tract that is completely out of balance. The number seven are food intolerances. Food intolerances are the inability for your gut to digest certain foods, and it can manifest in multiple different ways. Bloating, nausea, constipation, diarrhea. And it’s thought that these food intolerance could be a consequence of unhealthy gut bacteria.
So what can you do to get your gut to be your friend instead of your enemy? You’re my recommendation. Number one, stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water. That water acts as a way to pacify your GI tract, to replenish your GI tract and get rid of all the bad guys. Hydration is critical to improve your gut microbiome. Number two,
get more sleep. Sleep is critical for all aspects of health, including your GI truck. The more sleep that you can get, the more you can fine off the bad guys and the more you can replenish the good guys and try to prioritize at least seven, eight hours of sleep per night. Number three, lower your stress. I know easier said than done,
but there are ways to help out with this, whether it’s going for a walk, meditation, prayer, exercise, yoga. Find ways that are meaningful for you to minimize your stress, to help improve your GI tract. Here’s my call to action to you. Look at these signs. If any of these signs resonate for you, this could be a symptom of an unhealthy gut.
