Five Tips for Gut Health this winter

Posted on June 1, 2020 at 4:31 AM Comments comments (0)
5 tips to balance your gut health
 
Scientific evidence suggests that the health of your gut effects other organs and systems in your body, including the endocrine system.  The below tips can help improve your mental clarity, increase focus and boost happiness whilst reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, fatigue, weight fluctuations, skin disorders, pms and hot flushes….
 
1. Activate your gut…. Start your day with a glass of water with a dessert spoon of apple cider vinegar and a squeeze of lemon.  Ideally the water has been boiled and allowed to cool down.  The vinegar and lemon have the ability to wake up your salivary glands, which sends signals to your gut to rise and shine.
 
2. Keep your gut warm… Throughout the winter’s day, consider drinking a warm, anti-inflammatory beverage of ginger / mint / rosehip herbal tea or try a turmeric latte. These times of drinks will wake up and nurture the mind.
 
3. Keep your gut nourished… Fuel up on quality protein.  Protein is the building block of our hormones, bones, cartilage, nails, skin and muscles and will also keep blood sugar levels stable throughout the day.  For those on plant based diets, this includes Tofu, tempeh, edamame, green peas, lentils, chickpeas and most legumes and ancient grains (, spelt, barley, sorghum, einkorn, and faro).  For others, this includes grass-fed chicken, wild-caught salmon, mackerel, and tuna. These foods will help deter sugar cravings and afternoon energy slumps.
 
4. Keep your gut microbiome happy… eat fermented foods that your healthy gut bugs like and naturally contain probiotics.  Such foods include kefir, yoghurt, sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha.   Avoid inflammatory foods eg highly processed foods (white bread, cakes, gluten, sugar, processed meats, fried foods). Inflammation caused by a high diet of processed unhealthy foods can increase the risk of diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, asthma, and atherosclerosis, to name a few.

5. Not all fats are bad for your gut…  Healthy fats can be found in eggs, avocado, tahini, walnuts, brazil nuts, chia seeds, olive oil. These are important for maintaining good cell membrane structures and functioning and hormones eg oestrogen and testosterone.

Immunity Boosting...


We've been discussing immunity a lot lately with clients so here are our key tips.  Keep following us as we will be providing ongoing ideas to help in this area.  If you need specific help book in to see us - via the net/phone.


  • Eat pungent foods - Pungent foods such as onions and garlic support the lungs and general immunity.
  • Sleep - Adequate sleep is essential to support maintenance and repair of your immune system. Check out our article (one of our most popular ever) on sleep here. 
  • Exercise - Daily exercise (ideally incorporating some meditative aspect such as yoga or Qi Gong) is a great immune booster
  • Breathing - Breathing through the nose (where this is possible) can greatly enhance your ability to stop bugs before they enter your system.
  • Vitamin D - Vitamin D is renowned for supporting immune function - sensible sunlight exposure is a great way to top up your Vitamin D.
  • Nutrition- Whilst we may be limited in our options eating seasonal foods that are local and spray free is a great way to enhance your immunity.  Look for brightly coloured fruits and vegetables.
  • Thoughts- Research consistently shows what Chinese Medicine always knew - our thinking influences our health - particularly our immune health.  
  • ProBiotics- Probiotic foods are generally great to support immunity - Sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha are our favourites.
