Proper gut function is critical to addressing a variety of conditions.
Poor digestion impacts more than one may realize. When something goes wrong during the process of digestion, it often affects not just your gut, but also your immune system, hormone system and nervous system. Even if you eat an ideal diet, you may have decreased nutrient absorption and energy production.
Digestive issues can also lead to the development of inflammation and allergies. Poor digestive enzyme function can lead to trouble breaking down food, which can contribute to indigestion, gas, bloating, and constipation. An education on nutrition along with self-awareness to problematic foods, allergies or sensitivities will be the building blocks to a healthy gut and a happy body.
If your gut is not happy, your body is not happy.
Many digestive problems can also be a result of a stressful lifestyle. Women especially suffer from digestive issues; the most common and best known disorder is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Finding the causes of the stress and treating it will help regulate the digestion process in the body. One of the main goals at The Balanced Women is to help our clients identify and recognize their own stress triggers and develop techniques to handle them appropriately.
Many traditional approaches to digestive distress focus on treating the symptoms of the problem and not the cause. At The Balanced Woman, we seek to address poor gut function as a whole by combining “clean” eating, moderate exercise, and stress reduction. Our objective is to bring you to a healthy sense of being and comfort.
