‘The road to health is paved with good intestines’. The day your stomach is upset is the day you find it difficult to address any other work. The relation between good gut and healthy brain functioning has been a topic of study for several years. The gut-brain axis is the physical and chemical connection between your gut and brain. Millions of nerves and neurons run between your gut and brain. Neurotransmitters and other chemicals released by your gut affect your brain.
An unhealthy gut may not be taken seriously until and unless it severely starts interfering with daily routine and tasks. The term ‘gut microbiome’ or 300 to 500 different species of bacteria present in a normal digestive tract also play an important role in maintaining digestion. Some microorganisms are harmful to your health while the other microorganisms are incredibly healthy for your digestive tract. A disturbance in gut microbiome may also be responsible for derangement in gut health.
Look out for the following signs which may warn you of an unhealthy gut:
An unhealthy gut may remain constipated or one may suffer from diarrhoea. Diarrhoea and constipation may alternate with each other as in some cases of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Gas, bloating and acidity and heartburn are some of the other problems that one experiences. Ayurveda can help in decreasing the intensity and frequency of these symptoms by addressing the cause and the factors that worsen your existing diseases.
