3 simple things to avoid to immediately improve your gut health
Unfortunately, we are seeing an increasing number of people with serious health problems, and many of these disorders stem from intestinal issues. While every case is different, there are three basic things you can do to improve the health of your gut.
1. Stay away from chicken and meat that have antibiotics when possible. These antibiotics alter the flora in your intestines. Antibiotics are meant to kill the harmful bacteria; unfortunately, they kill the good bacteria, too, leaving you even more defenceless.
2. Stay away from high carbohydrate intake, i.e., sugar, pasta, rice and grains. They feed the bad flora. Never before in the history of mankind have humans eaten such large amounts of sugar and refined carbohydrates, and our bodies are not designed to optimize this fuel on a full-time basis.
3. Stay away from gut irritants. Avoid chemical toxins such as MSG, food preservatives and flavour enhancers. Eat organic whenever possible and avoid foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Gluten sensitivity is an increasing problem in our culture where 99% of the wheat we now consume is a hybrid developed back in 1970. This dwarf wheat also contained 14 new strains of gluten. It is estimated about 20% of our population could be gluten sensitive or intolerant, and many think this is one of the reasons why.
