Your Gut Feeling

gut“All disease begins in the gut” – Hippocrates

Long before chronic issues set in or acute issues became such a burden, your digestion may have tried to tell you something.
Once ignored, digestion is finally starting to get the attention it deserves. Now called the “second brain” in the natural health realm, studies on the gut are pointing out how our digestive tract impacts the whole body, including our minds. The connection of the gut has been linked to chronic illness, hormonal disorders, and behavioral disorders …just to name a few.

Where we start…

Homeopathy is a gentle approach to gut-related issues that works with your body. It’s a whole-body approach to uproot illness. Corresponding symptoms will often point to the appropriate homeopathic remedies; your body will often tell you what you need to know.

General food allergies?
A Bovista person may be able to eat certain foods without severe digestive upset, but they can suffer with bloating, constipation, or fatigue after consuming certain foods. Bovista 200 can help with these symptoms and is indicated with gluten or wheat intolerance.

Allergic to Feathers and Wool?
Tuberculinum bovinum may work for you. Someone who is an oversensitive person, allergic to dust, and craves bacon may also find this remedy useful. If there is an extreme love or aversion to milk, Tuberculinum may be an appropriate choice.

Constant Bloating, Edema?
Do you swell after you eat? Can’t remember a time when you didn’t feel bloated after a meal? Lycopodium Clavatum 200 and Arsencium Album 3 is a great homeopathic mix for that, and we have the Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation to thank for it! Wake up with a flat belly again and keep it throughout the day.

Irritable?
Nux Vomica can offer relief to those who have “had too much” or “can’t get enough”, are addictive in their behavior, and can sometimes get depressed. Waking at 3am may be one indicator that this remedy is a correct choice.

Allergic to Everything? Always sick?
Calcarea Carbonica 200 is for someone with dominant allergies, low immunity, and who is sensitive to everything.

Hyperactivity and Restlessness?
Food can trigger certain behaviors. Hyoscyamus 6c is a remedy for those who are greatly agitated. This child/adult may be physically uninhibited, suffer with nervousness, twitching, or have autistic or ADHD symptoms. They may have trouble falling asleep at night and engage in repetitive behavior.

Reactive Skin?
Digestion plays a huge role in the health of the skin. Some homeopathic combinations are indicated for severe acne, eczema, and other skin issues that are related to the health of the gut.
