So what’s all this about your gut, weight and inflammation?
Your gut is at the ROOT of your health.
Your gut is where you take all the good stuff you eat and drink and transform it into the many building blocks your body needs to make energy, think clearly, sleep well, maintain a healthy weight, build muscle, and clear out toxins that need clearing out daily so you can thrive. Your gut also houses over 80% of your immune system (and your immune system is in charge of regulating inflammation!).
It is my passion is to work with people like you whose health symptoms–like low energy, gut/digestive issues, excess weight, mood imbalance, and skin & sleep problems–are getting in the way of you living life fully and with a sense of freedom in your body. I help you to regain your health so you can feel great and free to enjoy life fully.
What’s my gut got to do with weight and inflammation?
Good question. Everything!
Let me introduce you to lipopolysaccharide, LPS for short. LPS is the major component of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, of which there are many in your gut. As part of normal metabolism, LPS is shed from bacteria. And this is no big deal when your gut is working properly.
But when your gut isn’t working properly, LPS passes into your bloodstream, creates inflammation, insulin resistance, metabolic disorders, and (of course) can contribute to weight gain.
Research suggests that LPS sets the tone for insulin levels (the hormone that controls your blood sugar and fat storage), diabetes, and the onset of obesity.
Take care of your gut
As you can see, your gut health is SUPER important for quality of life. When your gut isn’t working right, things like LPS can pass right on into your bloodstream and wreak havok on your system which sets the stage for pain & inflammation, metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes, and weight gain.
How do you make sure you’ve got a healthy gut? Well a great first step is to mind what you eat. Your food plays a tremendous role in your gut health. Drinking plenty of clean, filtered water daily, moving your body, getting 7-8 hrs of sleep/night, and managing your stress are all parts of the healthy gut foundation as well. It’s good to start with the basics and make sure you’ve really got those dialed in.
I meet people every day who think that they’ve got the basics dialed in, but when we explore, they really don’t. So dialing those basics in first is super important before taking additional gut healing measures. Throwing herbs, probiotics, and other supplements into the mix when you don’t have the basics dialed in is a waste of your time and resources.
