There can be MANY things that knock our digestive system off balance, such as:⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣

Our low fiber, high sugar, processed food, nutrient poor, high calorie diet that makes all the wrong bacteria and yeast from in the gut leading to a damaged ecosystem. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Overuse of medications that damage the gut or block digestive function – things like anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, acid blocking drugs, steroid, or birth control. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Chronic low-grade infections or gut imbalances with overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine, yeast overgrowth, parasites, or even more serious gut infections. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Toxins damage the gut such as mercury and mold. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Lack of adequate enzyme function -which can be from acid blocking medication or zinc deficiency.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Stress can alter the gut nervous system causing a leaky gut and changing the normal gut flora. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
