Discovering how to have a healthy gut may require you to turn everything you currently believe about health, on its head. So it can be challenging. However, challenges are there for you to gain knowledge you may be resistant to, otherwise. And there is no interest like your own health, to get you thinking.
Gut health is currently enjoying the popularity it deserves. Not before time. Medicine has been rather tardy in recognising the importance of it. Natural health care providers have been aware of its importance forever.
There are three important areas to focus on for good health:
The vast majority of westerners have terrible diets. The diets are mostly unsuitable for our species, are mostly toxic and lack nutrition.
Don’t expect to get any good advice on nutrition from your GP. They receive no training in nutrition at medical school. You might be shocked to hear that, as you may be aware that nutrition is at the core of good health.
So you have to go elsewhere for that advice.
Our bodies are alkaline. We are healthiest when we are generously in the alkaline pH. If our blood pH level becomes even slightly acidic, we die.
This means our diet should be largely alkaline.
Alkaline foods are whole food plant based diets – any fruit and vegetable, nuts and seeds. Real food. Food that grows on plants. Not packet food.
Acid foods are animal proteins – dairy, eggs, white meat, red meat. And processed food such as white sugar, white flour.
Further, cooking destroys many nutrients and microwaving more still.
So the typical western diet of a diet high in animal protein, refined white sugar, white flour is making many very sick.

Learning how to have a healthy gut also means you get a handle on toxicity.
Do you ever check the ingredients of the packet food you buy? You might be surprised to realise how little actual food goes into them and how much of it is synthetic.
Your body has no knowledge of synthetic so it does its best to eliminate them. But with an over burden in today’s toxic world, it can be hard for your body to to keep up. Many ‘health supplements’ are just synthetic copycats (and bad ones at that) of the real thing.
Medications are largely synthetic. Do you really need all those you are taking? Did you know that iatrogenesis (death from prescription drugs) is felt to be the third leading cause of death, after heart issues and cancer?
GPs and those who follow them seem to be at war with Nature. Yet Nature is benevolent when you understand her.
Your gut is teeming with bacteria. Without them, you would be dead, not being able to digest or utilise any food. Yet people unwittingly disrupt this delicate balance, by taking regular doses of antibiotics, often for no reason other than the GP had nothing else to offer.
There are far better health care systems than the broken medical model we have today, which is responsible to such a profoundly sick society we currently see as normal.
Homeopathy, unlike medicine, looks at your whole being. It considers everything that has had an impact on your life, however long ago. And it supports your immune system returning to its rightful and powerful place to heal you.
Homeopathy is an energy medicine. This can be hard for people to get their heads around. It helps to appreciate what this is when you consider that all living beings are energy beings. We’re not robots. We’re not machines. So when things don’t go to plan, it affects our energetic or vibrational core. Our immune system can’t function.
Good homeopathic treatment restores balance and harmony so our immune system can do what it is meant to do – restore and maintain health.
It doesn’t matter what the gut issue it, or what the medical term is, as that is simply your personal expression of disharmony.
Simply changing the diet can fully resolve your problem. It doesn’t fully restore all problems in all people, but it is fundamental to a healthy body. Add in good homeopathic treatment and you are likely to see a full reversal of any gut issues, permanently.
The natural path in discovering how to have a healthy gut is the only way to resolve the underlining cause/s.
