Gastrointestinal illnesses, which affect the GI tract from the mouth to the anus, are divided into two categories: functional and structural. Nausea/vomiting, food poisoning, lactose intolerance, and diarrhea are some of the most common symptoms. High-stress levels, insufficient sleep, bad eating habits, and antibiotic use are all symptoms of modern life. All of this harms our gut microbiome and increases our risk of developing gastrointestinal disorders. This impacts various elements of health, including the brain, heart, immune system, skin, weight, hormone levels, nutritional absorption, and so on.
Other things that cause gastrointestinal diseases include:
• Diets low in fiber
• Not obtaining enough physical activity.
• Major changes in lifestyle routine
• Increased consumption of dairy products.
• High-stress levels
• Overuse of anti-diarrheal drugs
• calcium- or aluminum-containing antacids consumed in huge quantities
Things you should do to improve your gastrointestinal health:
• Reduce stress
• Get more sleep
• Eat slowly in smaller quantities
• Keep yourself hydrated at all times
• Consume probiotics or prebiotics
• Maintain a healthy diet
• Consume more high-fiber foods
