Skin Problems and Digestive Issues


One cause of skin problems is about as far away from the skin as we can get: in the gut. There’s good reason to believe that the health of your skin depends on what happens in your gut. We know from research that gut issues are more prevalent in people with skin conditions. And the same studies show that if you treat those gut issues you can expect your skin to clear faster.

Nothing contributes more to your overall health than digestive wellness. The digestive system is the root of health. No matter how well you eat, if your digestive system isn’t breaking down and absorbing the nutrients in your food, your body can’t get what it needs to keep you healthy. You aren't what you eat; only what you absorb. The common philosophy among most natural health practitioners is that you are only as healthy as your digestive system is. This is because without proper nutrients no cell, organ, gland or system can do its job properly. It takes strong digestion to break down the essential fats, minerals, proteins and other materials critical for healthy bones, muscles and running body.

Your gut and your skin are best buddies. Wherever you find one, you will likely find the other. A leaky gut is an inflamed gut. Skin problems are perhaps the most visible symptom of systemic inflammation. If you have significant skin problem, there is inevitably inflammation in your blood. Doctors have suspected a connection between gut and the skin for at least 50 years.

Having good gut health is crucial for improving your skin because without a healthy gut, the body won’t be able to absorb important nutrients the body needs.
