Healthcare Champions – a new weekly show that airs on CW44_TampaBay, featuring LifeWorks’ Dr. David Minkoff.

Good Gut Health Can Determine Your Overall Health

Your gut health will determine how your body attacks the “bad guys” and absorbs the nutrition and uses the “good guys”.

Poor Gut health can end up in such symptoms as:

  • Gerd
  • Heart Burn
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Leaky Gut
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea

These gut health symptoms will often be treated with drugs to prevent stomach acid. The problem with handling the gut health symptoms rather than the source means you can make the sitaution worse. If you are using acid blocking prescriptions to handle your Gerd symptoms you are allowing the “bad guys” to proceed into your intestines causing your intestinal walls to break down and leak chemicals into your body.

Hippocrates said “…all disease begins in the colon…” and that “…constipation is man’s deadliest disease…”. He’s right!

Diet is extremely important for a healthy gut. Healthy, organic, non-GMO food will support your gut health. If your gut doesn’t feel well, GERD, heartburn, bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation, you need someone to figure out what is wrong with your gut and get it sorted out so it can be a happy place again.
