Why Are Digestive Issues So Common These Days?

We live in a fast-paced society and this makes eating on the run a way of life for many.  Most fast food, even “healthy fast foods” contains ingredients such as the following:  Refined and processed carbohydrates (pasta, bread, crackers, cookies etc), genetically modified ingredients, palm oil, hidden sources of sugar and/or pesticides and preservatives.  Any one of these foods can cause digestive symptoms to develop, but especially the combination of multiple ingredients can all have a very negative impact on the health of our gut. Another issue comes the many fad diets being publicized by non-medical podcasters through the various social media platforms. These diets often lead to unhealthy eating patterns, yoyo dieting and even more trauma to the digestive system.  Common symptoms that result include bloating, gas, stomach pain, heartburn, constipation and/or diarrhea.  Fortunately there are many effective natural solutions to improve digestive health by adopting a well balanced diet, making healthy lifestyle modifications and following personalized supplement regimes.  Let our Naturopathic Doctors guide you on your journey to acheiving gut health!
