“The gut is our center- it controls our immune functioning, mood, mental clarity and overall well being”
It All Starts With The Gut
One of the most agreed upon notions in functional medicine is that you can’t work with anyone to improve their health if their gut is not optimally working. About 80% of our immune system is located in our guts, not to mention the gut is referred to as our second brain due to the amount of neurotransmitters made here. Our diets, stress levels, environmental toxins all influence the diversity of our microbiome (gut flora). When we are not digesting our food properly it can lead not only to digestive problems but also to food sensitivities, allergies, weight gain or weight loss, skin issues, autoimmune reactions, joint pain, brain fog and much more.
