Gut health is perhaps the most talked about subject these days owing to its complexity and vital role in living a life that does not get hampered by sickness. Recently the connection has been established and researched between gut health and mental health.
While this area is still being explored by science, the gut health experts at Melbourne’s My Vital Health Solutions emphasise why it is not surprising.
The gut is an ecosystem of microbial flora that when levels are disrupted, even in the slightest, can cause a disruption in other bodily functions.
You have often heard the phrase ‘I have a gut feeling’. Although idiomatic, this is actually a pointer to something deeper that exists.
When you anticipate a hearty meal, digestive juices are often released much before you actually consume the meal. This connection is a two-way street.
An unhealthy gut can send signals to the brain inducing the release of certain endorphins and hormones that can cause stress, anxiety etc.
The complications that arise as part of your eating patterns are classified in the range of digestive problems.
Among these, food intolerances such as gluten intolerance or the more frequently heard lactose intolerance may arise.
Getting the treatment of a digestive problem in Melbourne entails having the root problem checked out and eliminating the foods from the diet that cause these problems and substituting these with other nutritional equivalents.
Gut health is dictated by the type of foods consumed. Excessive consumption of fast foods, spicy snacks, fizzy drinks can cause a shift in the useful gut bacteria that resides in the gut and could be a leading cause of obesity.
The weight loss program at Melbourne’s My Vital Health Solutions is one that has been designed with the aim of not only shedding the pounds but facilitating a detox.
There is something majorly wrong with trying to lose weight while not detoxing. The toxins or unnecessary material from the food moves into the bloodstream as the fat tissue where they are usually stored, breaks down.
The weight loss program in Melbourne is where you learn the right way of losing weight and gaining back health.
The antibodies that fight off infection are made of proteins that come from the dietary protein foods that one consumes.
A condition that has become increasingly common these days is the autoimmune condition. The body’s warriors begin to attack the healthy body cells having mistaken them for infectious agents.
Melbourne’s autoimmunity experts highlight the difference that a healthy diet can make. It all begins in the gut. The phrase ‘you are what you eat’ has never been more true.
Food determines the body’s mechanisms that are activated in certain conditions.
When in doubt ask the autoimmunity experts in Melbourne who have for years been dealing with these conditions and approaches of how to tackle them.
As discussed, food is the root, the integral stem from where it all begins.
What do you consume as part of your diet?
It is a balanced spread of carbs, fats, sugars, protein?
Is it an excess of junk?
It is time to stop.
Here are a few foods that are an absolute ‘must-eat’ for great gut health.
A pool of probiotics and healthy bacteria, yoghurt is an essential part of maintaining good gut health. The main aspect of improving gut health is promoting bacterial populations that help digestion. This is exactly what yoghurt does.
A fermented cabbage dish that abounds in fibre, vitamins, and probiotics, this German dish has everything essential for a healthy gut.
A delicious helping of almonds to begin the day provides the necessary dose of polyphenols and fatty acids that the good bacteria in the gut just love.
Grocery shopping this weekend? Don’t forget the kilo of peas that can go well with any dish. Peas are a great source of soluble and insoluble fibres that make it a great food item to have on the platter and a picnic for the gut bacteria that help digestion.
Abundant in probiotics and sulphur compounds that eliminate bad bacteria, Brussel sprouts are a yummy addition to your diet.
Collagen-boosting foods contain L-Glutamine, an amino acid that fuels the intestines and are a great addition to the diet. These aid in boosting gut health and what is more is that they lower anxiety levels.
High-fibre foods are integral to facilitating digestion and maintaining a good gut wall. These fibre-rich foods are even great and recommended during the weight loss program in Melbourne.
Omega-3 Fatty acids
Fish such as mackerel, salmon, herring etc. are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. A sure way of soothing inflammation and helping digestion, these foods are a great way of improving gut bacteria and enriching it.
