Do you suffer from abdominal bloating?
Do you wake up in the morning feeling quite happy with yourself because your stomach is nice and flat but by the end of the day you could be mistaken for someone who is 12 weeks pregnant?
Does your stomach feel hard and bloated after each meal?
Are you trying to eat all the right food, of the right amount, at the right time, yet you’re still suffering from bloating?
If this sounds like you, then several things could be happening…
We all need and have a diversity of bacteria in our micro-biome. But has one of these produced an imbalance in your gut?
Parasites and Pathogens
Have you recently been travelling and haven’t felt the same since you’ve been back? You might have an extra bug on board.
The pancreas releases enzymes that are needed for the breakdown of proteins, starches, vegetables and fats. A lack of these will cause malabsorption and indigestion.
Hydrochloric Acid Imbalance
Hydrochloric acid is needed for the breakdown and digestion of foods as well as absorption of minerals such as magnesium, zinc and B Vitamins.
If you have an inflamed gut, you can still react to foods even if they’re healthy. Due to gut permeability, your body will perceive a seemingly ‘healthy’ food as harmful, and releases IgG antibodies as an immune response.
Do you notice that you have poor digestion and bloating Monday to Friday but then the weekends or when you’re on holidays you seem absolutely fine? Well it could be something as simple as stress causing your symptoms.
