Gut Health

An optimized, balanced gut is the foundation of good health. Your gut encompasses the entire system from your mouth to your anus: stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and digestive functions of liver, spleen, pancreas, and gallbladder. Over 80% of your immune system is contained within your gut and any imbalance here will lead to inflammation and immune dysfunction throughout your entire body. Gut health is vitally important to healing the brain, especially mood imbalances (anxiety, depression, bipolar, OCD, ADHD) and cognitive function.
