Alchemy of Health Webinar Series – Beat Bloating and Gut Pain
Bloating and abdominal distention are common in irritable bowel syndrome and can cause significant pain and distress. If you feel bloated soon after eating, especially below the rib cage, it’s likely an issue with low stomach acid.
Why is it Important?
The drivers of bloating, a sense of gassiness or a sense of being distended can range from the type of diet, digestive incapacity, inflammation or an imbalance of microbial ecology.
It is for this reason, a careful history and examination of metabolic functioning of the gut from the time food enters to mouth to the time that faecal matter leaves the body can usually differentiate bloating from abdominal distention. Advanced diagnosis of the microbiota will reveal the underlying causes of bloating and distinguish between an organic process and a functional disorder.
As our primary environmental interface, the gut houses more nerves than the rest of our nervous system put together and makes more immunological decisions in one day than the rest of the immune system makes in a lifetime.
The human gastrointestinal system plays a key role in optimal functioning capacity of the entire body via its microbiota which are engaged in myriad metabolic, nutritional and immune processes.
