If you’ve said yes to any of the above, then chronic stress might be affecting your gut health.

.

When your body is under any kind of stress, it restricts blood circulation in the digestive system. In a flight and fight scenario, this works in your favor (as it’s essential for survival). BUT, your body can’t tell if you’re running away from a tiger OR if you’re simply under a tight deadline at work.

.

And if your body thinks you are constantly running away from a tiger, this negatively impacts your gut.

.

It opens the door for unfriendly guests (think: “bad” bacteria, parasites, yeast, etc), lowers the number of diverse bacteria, and diminishes the overall healthy environment of the gut flora.

.

👉Fun fact: we have a “gut-brain axis”, through which the brain and gut communicate. It involves the central (brain) nervous system and the enteric (digestive) nervous system. What does this mean? 👉 Your gut affects the ability to handle stress just as much as the stress affects your gut health.🤯

.

Simple but effective actions you can take to manage stress and improve your gut👇

.

🌻 Leave that sedentary lifestyle behind and get grooving to your favourite song, slay that favorite yoga pose, or surpass your target number of crunches. An active lifestyle helps your gut thrive and also maintains the microbial diversity (not to mention the stress busting effects it has on our mind!)

.

🌻 Regular sleep is KEY to getting your stress under control AND keeping your “good bacteria” happy.

.

🌻 Engage in stress reducing activities such as meditation and / or deep breathing exercises. I know, I know stereotypical advice…but this stuff works!

.

🌻 Support your gut environment with supplements such as a high quality probiotic to boost natural gut flora. (Work with your alternative health care provider to see which strain is best for you!)

.

🌻 Whenever possible, choose plant based foods in their whole, natural states, as well as probiotic-rich cultured and fermented foods like sauerkraut. Toss in some prebiotic foods as well while you’re at it like onions, bananas, and apples.
