How Can Your Microbiome and/or Leaky Gut Be Corrected?
Alterations in the gut microbiome have been associated with many health conditions such as autoimmune disorders, metabolic diseases, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
in order for any Autoimmune Disease to manifest there must be three factors:
1) an environmental trigger
2) a genetic susceptibility
3) an intestinal hyper-permeability (“leaky gut syndrome”)
If you have Celiac Disease, or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), but are still having villi damage or residual symptoms, you may still be getting gluten exposure from hidden sources, including non-dietary sources. This comprehensive list will help you identify potential exposures that you weren’t aware of.
So, first, we need to gather all the information about your symptoms and match them to your lab results. We offer expanded functional medicine lab tests to provide you with practical and relevant information.
Dr. Maya helps you to understand what is going on and creates a step-by-step process to correct all your digestive issues.
The treatment plan might include pharmaceutical-grade supplements, a nutrition plan, acupuncture, herbal remedies, lifestyle suggestions, and emotional balancing.
How My Digestive Issues Can Affect My Mood?
The gut-brain axis is a system of communication between the brain and your entire digestive system, which includes not only digestive organs, but also the smooth muscle that moves the food along, your immune system, and your nervous system.
Communication happens in both directions: gut-to-brain and brain-to-gut. It explains how your digestive symptoms relate to your mental stress. About 90% of your serotonin (relaxation neurotransmitter) is located in your GI tract and participates in more functions besides your mood, memory, and cognition.
There is definitely a correlation between mental health and healthy digestion.
For example, anxiety is much higher in individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) than in those with a healthy gut. Some studies have shown that emotional stress can increase IBS symptoms and it also works in the opposite direction – digestive disorders can cause mood disorders.
A person who experienced emotional trauma or early life adversities might have affected gut bacteria, which can cause dysbiosis and leaky gut syndrome.
