The real food community has been extolling the virtues of a healthy gut for years so it’s a blessing to see the mainstream media catch up.

Research in the past two decades has confirmed that more than 70% of our immune system is in the gut. The implication, good health is linked to good gut health. A big part of good gut health includes maintaining that high-fiber diet and taking gut health supplements when needed. However, what do you do when your gut health is in bad shape, here we look at several factors, including diet, stress, and antibiotics.

The whole gut, from end to end, is full of micro-organisms, both beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria. They live in a harmony as long as there is an ideal balance and they promote normal digestive functions. Antibiotics kill both the bad and the beneficial microbes. Scientific studies have confirmed this (1).

Restore Gut Health to Restore Your Health

With proper planning and patience, it is very much possible to help restore digestive balance. There are steps that you can follow to help you feel your best self.

First, detoxify the gut. Talk to your nearest natural health practitioner about a herbal preparation that will clean your gut.

Secondly introduce new flora into the gut.  A product like Renew Life Probiotics will restore your intestinal flora.  Probiotics are the very opposite of antibiotics. They contain friendly bacteria that will help replace the ones destroyed by antibiotics. These helpful bacteria support healthy digestion and assimilation, produce lactic acid and important digestive enzymes, improve the digestion of lactose (which some people have trouble digesting), and support the immune health. Take a course of Renew Life Probiotics after your cleanse and whenever you finish a course of antibiotics.

I’ve tried several brands of probiotics in the past and I keep coming back to Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotics because I notice a marked difference when using them.

Thirdly, look at your diet. After detoxifying the whole digestive system, you will want to avoid those foods that can cause occasional issues and affect your gut health and maintain regular check-ins with your doctor.
