7 Signs and Causes of Poor Gut Health

One way of knowing you have finally made it into adulthood is by making the decision to stop treating your body as if it were a dumpster. Perhaps you have decided that now is the time to put away bad habits such as maladaptive eating rituals, a grossly unhealthy diet, regular alcohol-fueled party weekends, and chronic couch potato-ing. You may want to start by finding out what is wrong with your upset digestive system, but don’t want to go through the circus known as seeing a physician and getting a gut workup. You can learn about the seven signs and causes of poor gut health here and get your abused gut in tiptop working shape at Thin MD Medspa.

Do I Have Poor Gut Health?

If you are like most people, then the answer is probably yes. There are seven signs of poor digestive health, but since every gut is different, you may have signs that are not discussed here.

  • Upset stomach, gurgling gut, and improper bowel movements
  • Sugar addiction cycle
  • Weight change either up or down, without trying to change weight
  • Constant fatigue or inefficient sleep
  • Skin conditions such as eczema
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Food allergies or intolerances

What Causes Poor Digestive Health?

The number one cause of a weak gut for many people is personal bad habits such as eating a diet based on processed or fast foods, binge drinking on weekends, and a sedentary lifestyle. There are six additional causes of a weak digestive system, but once again, every gut is different, so you may have signs that are not discussed here.

  • The use of antibiotics or other medications like NSAIDS
  • Diet
  • Poor sleep
  • Slow digestion
  • Elevated or abnormal hormone levels (like cortisol)
  • Environment

Digestive Dilemmas

Digestive dilemmas such as chronic heartburn, belching, fullness, gurgling, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea are all hallmarks of a dysfunctional gut. A diet high in processed foods, especially refined sugars including high fructose corn syrup, creates a vicious cycle that is hard to break without guidance. The normal flora in your gut includes bacteria and yeast. When yeast is fed a steady diet of sugar, they take control over the good bacteria and help create the sugar cravings and energy drops that drive you to consume more sugar so they can reproduce and thrive to create more cravings.

Contributing Causes

Sometimes it cannot be helped. Some people must use medications like the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can lead to impaired good bacteria and the promotion of leaky gut. Some people can’t do anything about the damp, foggy, moldy environment they live in and some people cannot control their elevated hormone levels. This is where a consultation at a Medspa comes to the rescue.


If you are suffering from these symptoms, or if you are aware that you are positive for some of the causes, or even if you’re not sure, you don’t have to be reluctant to get help by accessing the traditional healthcare delivery system and all of its expenses and hassles.
