Food sensitivities: If you feel bloated, gassy, and just downright blah after you eat certain foods, it might be a sign that you have gut inflammation, also known as leaky gut syndrome. The most common food sensitivities are to gluten and dairy, but you can develop sensitivities to other foods as well.
Migraines: There is a link between gut and brain health. Inability to concentrate, ADD, migraine and ADHD might actually be linked to what's going on in your gut.
Chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia: Gluten intolerance is a contributing factor
Persistent skin problems: acne, rosacea, or eczema. A disruption in your gut bacteria can also allow yeast, commonly called Candida, to thrive. Candida colonizes the gut, causing it to become leaky, which in turn allows the yeast to escape via the bloodstream. Once escaped, this yeast can affect your mood, hair, nails and skin.
Anxiety & depression: Inflammation in your gut can negatively affect your mood. Markers of inflammation are elevated in depressed patients.
Gas, bloating, diarrhea, or irritable bowel syndrome it's likely that your gut is inflamed due to stress, food intolerances, infection, or environmental toxins.
Remove all inflammatory foods that can damage the gut such as gluten, dairy, corn, soy, and eggs, as well as toxic foods, including sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. Restore the beneficial bacteria in the gut with high-quality, high-potency probiotics.
