Clear Signs You Have an Unhealthy Gut   By Colette House

Your gastrointestinal tract is lined with microbes collectively called the microbiome, which includes bacteria, fungi, and even viruses. Gut bacteria perform many important functions in the body, including aiding the immune system, producing the feel-good brain chemical serotonin, making energy available to the body from the food we eat, and disposing of foreign substances and toxins, according to Lisa Fischer, MS, RDN, LDN, registered dietitian at the UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts. Unfortunately, though we always have a mixture of good and bad bacteria, sometimes the bad guys get the upper hand, causing an imbalance in gut bacteria, which can play a role in a number of health conditions.


• You’re hankering for certain foods

Craving foods, especially sweets and sugar, can mean you have an imbalance of gut bacteria. “If there’s an overgrowth of yeast in the system, which might happen after a course or two of antibiotics where you wipe out all the good bacteria, then that overgrowth of yeast can actually cause you to crave more sugar,” Fischer says.


• You’re anxious or feeling blue

Roughly 80 to 90 percent of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that affects mood, social behavior, sleep, appetite, memory, and even libido, is produced in the gut. When less serotonin is produced, it can negatively impact mood.


• You’re not sleeping well

Not having enough serotonin can lead to bouts of insomnia or difficulty getting to sleep, according to Fischer. Chronic fatigue and symptoms of fibromyalgia can be tied into gut bacteria imbalances as well.


• Your skin is acting up

Skin rashes and eczema, a chronic condition characterized by inflamed and itchy red blotches on the skin, can develop when there is an imbalance in gut bacteria, according to Victoria Maizes, MD, executive director of the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and professor of medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.


• You have an autoimmune condition

Imbalance in the microbiome plays a role in more than just GI symptoms. Diseases affecting the immune system, known as autoimmune diseases, can also indicate an imbalance. Rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis can be tied in with imbalances in the gut bacteria.


• How to build a healthier gut

Eating right is the first step in improving your microbiome. In fact, the types of foods we eat can change our gut bacteria in as little as 24 hours, according to Ali Keshavarzian, MD, professor of medicine and director of the Division of Digestive Disease and Nutrition at Rush University Medical Center. To feed your good bacteria and starve the less desirable bacteria, swap out processed foods, breads, and pastas for more plants, fruits, seeds, and nuts. And consider adding fermented foods into your diet (such as yogurt) which naturally contain probiotics, or healthy bacteria. It’s also a great idea to fill up on prebiotic foods, which actually feed the good bacteria. Try pistachios, bananas, garlic, onion, wheat, and oats, plus ancient grains such as quinoa, millet, or chia. Lastly, avoid unnecessary use of antibiotics.        Source:
