Benefits of a Healthy Gut

Mary Fahri, MD

The gut or digestive system is often referred to as the second brain. It is a river that runs through you. Each day you put pounds of foreign substances into your mouth hoping your body can distinguish friend from foe. Because the gut is the largest interface in your body, it makes sense that it is also the seat of the immune system. However, the gut also runs your metabolism, makes vitamins, and communicates with all the other cells in your body. The purpose of this amazing digestive system is to bring nutrients into your body. When it does not function properly, you may develop symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, and inflammation. Gut dysfunction can also be associated with chronic conditions such as depression, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases. If left unattended they can become chronic health problems. The dis-ease of the gastrointestinal system can be due to poor food choices as well as an inability to digest, absorb, and utilize food due to poor digestive function, as well as genetic causes.

Find out about the functional medicine approach to developing a healthy GI system utilizing a root cause approach.

Become informed about tools to diagnose imbalances. Understand how to create a healthy GI system. Gain knowledge about key diet and lifestyle factors to positively affect your GI system to heal your gut and create vitality.
