Other Conditions Helped by Functional Nutrition
Hippocrates once said, "All disease begins in the gut." Medicine has advanced since the times of the ancient Greeks, but Hippocrates may have been one of the first to acknowledge how vital the gastrointestinal system is to overall health. Here are some health conditions that have a connection to what goes on in our digestive tracts.
Complex miscommunications between immune cells (such as in autoimmunity) can occur when intestinal permeability and inflammation come on board in those with genetic susceptibility.
Chronic Fatigue & Brain Fog
Brain fog and fatigue can be a common sign of a food intolerance, impaired GI function, nutrient absorption, and suboptimal nutrition.
The gut microbiome, or the balance of bacteria in your gut, has body-wide impacts including affecting skin health. Rashes, eczema, rosacea, and inflammation can all lead back to the gut.
Slow or rapid metabolism can be a sign to take a deeper look into your nutrition to optimize your energy balance and metabolic functioning.
Anxiety & Depression
Our ability to "rest and digest" is just as much about our nervous systems as it is our digestive systems. Information is shared between our bellies and brains, impacting function of each.
Stress, sleep, and menstrual cycles impact our GI function, appetite, and food choices which can either support or impair GI function and energy balance.
“I finally understand what was causing my symptoms. I am sleeping better, I’m less irritable and I just feel so much better mentally. I can actually picture traveling again one day and living a normal life.”
