When we talk about the gut, we often hear about a variety of diet advice and maintaining a healthy weight. The truth is, your gut has a deeper story.

There’s more to it than just digestion. It’s intricately linked to our brains, commonly known as the gut-brain connection.

Your gut health influences your emotions and thoughts. Beyond food, it’s about nurturing this internal harmony to enhance our overall well-being.

If you want to improve your mental health and get rid of chronic pain, healing your gut is the best way to start.

Here’s everything you need to know to lay a strong foundation for your gut health and, in turn, your holistic health.

Understanding Your Gut Microbiome

Microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, and viruses live in your gut and form a complex community. 

This ecosystem is vital for breaking down food, making nutrients, protecting against dangerous pathogens, and producing neurotransmitters such as serotonin that send chemical signals to your brain. 

Why does the gut microbiome matter?

We have a mutually beneficial relationship with the microorganisms that live in our guts. We give them food and shelter, and in turn, they uphold our health and connection to the earth.


You can compare the gut microbiome to a rich native garden that has a variety of plants. When the soil is in good health, the plants thrive and are good to eat. When the soil health isn’t the best, it leaves more room for harmful organisms to take over your garden, and the plants suffer.


Gut bacteria (microbiome) produce hundreds of neurochemicals that the brain uses to regulate basic physiological processes such as learning, memory, and mood! 


Your gut bacteria produce 90%–95% of your serotonin (happy hormone) supply, which influences your mood! This can explain a lot when it comes to anxiety and depression.

Common health issues caused by an unhealthy gut

Dysbiosis is when your delicate environment is out of balance. 

Lots of different health problems can happen because of it, from stomach problems to more serious conditions like autoimmune diseases and even mental health problems.

The Cleveland Clinic shared a list of health conditions and disorders that relate to dysbiosis:

  • Infections: Harmful germs can cause gut infections, leading to diarrhea, gut inflammation, and damage.
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO): Bacteria from your large intestine have moved to your small intestine and settled there, even though they don’t belong there. 
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): autoimmune conditions like Crohn’s disease are linked to gut imbalance.
  • Atherosclerosis: Certain gut bacteria increase heart disease risk by producing harmful byproducts affecting arteries.

Other than that, here’s a list of health conditions that may be indirectly related to gut dysbiosis:

  • Allergies.
  • Anxiety.
  • Asthma.
  • Autism.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
  • Colon cancer.
  • Diabetes.
  • Depression.
  • Fatty liver disease.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • Liver cancer.
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS).
  • Neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Obesity.
  • Pancreatic cancer.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

For good health, the microbiome in our guts needs to be varied and balanced. This shows how important it is to take care of this complicated system.

The 5 Signs of an Unhealthy Gut [and How to Deal with Them]

Aside from chronic illnesses, some signs can disguise themselves as “simple problems” we encounter daily. Spotting these early can make a huge difference to your health and happiness.

Here are the five signs your gut might be trying to get your attention:


Warning Signs What’s happening What you can do:
Constant Stomach Trouble  If you’re often dealing with gas, bloating, or an upset stomach, it’s your body waving a red flag. Try eating more slowly, adding more fiber to your diet, and drinking plenty of water.
Your Weight’s on a Rollercoaster Gaining or losing weight without changing your diet or exercise habits? Your gut might be the reason. Keep a detailed food diary to spot any patterns. Reflect on how you feel after you consume your food and beverage. Once you spot your troublemakers, slowly remove them from your diet. 
Feeling Tired All the Time If you’re sleeping enough but still feel exhausted, a troubled gut might be disrupting your sleep. Eat a lighter meal for dinner. Give yourself three hours between your meal and bedtime. Take magnesium glycinate before bed. 

(Quick note: If you have a medical condition, please consult your physician before making any changes to your diet.)

Skin Issues Won’t Go Away Persistent skin problems like acne or eczema can sometimes be linked to gut health. Start your morning with 16–32 ounces of warm spring water, using 2-3 freshly squeezed lemons or key limes. 

Follow up with fresh celery juice 30 minutes later. Start with 8 oz. and work your way up to 32oz.

Consistent Sugar Cravings A constant, uncontrollable craving for sugar and junk food. Start your morning with 16–32 ounces of warm spring water, using 2-3 freshly squeezed lemons or key limes. 

Fruit is nature’s candy that heals! Eat fresh, whole fruit for the first 6 hours of the day and increase your vegetable intake.

Supplement recommendations: amino acids, such as Purium products. Use the code thehealthymove1 to get a discount. 

(Quick note: If you are taking medication, please consult your physician before taking any supplement.)


Did any of these signs sound familiar? 


Knowing what’s up is the first step to feeling better. But figuring out what to do next can feel overwhelming.


That’s why I want to share something with you that’s helped many people get their gut health back on track.
