3 Main Causes of Everyday Gut Discomfort

by Kristen Smith, DPT

Did you know that over 95 million people in the U.S deal with digestive problems?


The majority of those people are given medication as a solution to mask the symptoms with no real guidance on how to FIX the issue(s). Which is frustrating!


Anti-acid medications can help with immediate symptoms, but over time can impact the balance of good and bad bacteria. Over time, if this bacteria becomes off balance, gut/digestive/bloating often become worse. We see this a lot here at Nutrition Dynamic. 


Gut issues such as:

  • Indigestion 
  • Reflux
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • IBS
  • General GI discomfort

…can all be tied back to one of 3 things - stress, triggering foods, and lifestyle


Here is what makes our process here at Nutrition Dynamic different when it comes to healing digestive issues:


We don’t just address the symptoms. We address the source of what’s causing the discomfort!


This means, we help heal the damage to the gut lining, support healthy microbes in the gut, address underlying yeast overgrowth, and calm inflammation. 


Try decreasing stress levels at home either by adding in more walking to your day, doing some breathwork practice, journaling, etc. can all really help decrease stress levels! 


Avoid triggering foods such as gluten and dairy for a little while. These are two very common gut irritants. 


Give these things a try for a few weeks and see how you feel. Tackling these 3 areas - stress, food triggers, and lifestyle - make a HUGE difference in our gut function. If these don’t help with your symptoms, you might need some one-on-one coaching to find the root cause of what’s going on with your gut symptoms. We would love to help in any way here at Nutrition Dynamic. 


If you’ve tried addressing these factors and are ready for some coaching from us, please fill out one of our discovery call forms for a FREE 30 minute phone consultation with one of our Guides. You’ll be able to ask questions about our program(s) and see if it’s a good fit for you!
