If you are suffering from adverse gut health, it really can impact all of your body and even your mental health too. It can cause so many problems that you are left feeling debilitated. However, thankfully for people struggling with poor gut health, there are some common underlying causes to rule out and combat. So, why is your gut playing up? Here are five tips that could lead to some resolution. 

Typical Symptoms of Poor Gut Health

What are the tell-tale signs that your gut is not doing as well as it could be? There is quite a long list. Here are the top ten most common symptoms. 

  • Bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Soreness
  • Constipation 
  • Diarrhoea 
  • Sugar cravings
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Migraines
  • Acne
  • Low mood

Looking at Gut Bacteria Factors

A number of other problematic stomach symptoms can be figured out by looking at several areas, as this blog on how to help with bloating and fatigue explains. The first place to look is often at the bacteria within the gut and decide whether there appears to be an imbalance at play. Lots of factors such as a lack of fiber can create an imbalance, which then makes the immune system vulnerable. This leads to all sorts of problems like inflammation, bloating, sickness, and chronic tiredness. 

Aiming For Better Sleep

When your body doesn’t have enough sleep, everything gets out of sync. It has definite proven links to things like IBS and other stomach problems. So if you are one of those people who suffer from insomnia or any other form of disrupted sleep, this could be to blame for your current gut health concerns. 

Ruling Out Intolerances

There is always the intolerance route to go down as well. You can be allergic or intolerant to any ingredient in the world. It is often helpful to keep a food diary and note down what you eat. Then you can corroborate with the symptoms you feel after certain meals and see if the data highlights anything worth acting on. 

Reducing Your Sugar Intake

While sugar might be the thing you are craving because of your poorly gut, it could also be the problem causing the discomfort in the first place. That’s not to suggest that you must completely eradicate sugar from your diet. It is more of a gentle movement towards healthier habits. Sugar (in big quantities) is really counterproductive for a healthy gut. 

Focus on Stress

Stress is one of the biggest exacerbators for the stomach. When you feel stressed, especially if this is an ongoing, frequent occurrence, your stomach will feel the effects. If you have been feeling heightened and irritable lately and your life is a little (or a lot) stressful, try finding ways to counteract this and see if these actions have a positive impact. You could catch up with friends or try a relaxing movement activity such as yoga

Stomachs can become irritated and unhealthy for a number of reasons. You can do a little digging and figure out if it is any of the most common reasons to find some relief.
