Gut health and stress

Publication date: Jan 18, 2020

Stress has an almost immediate effect on our gut and digestive system. There are various ways how stress affects the gut – Cause inflammation of the gut lining and increase intestinal permeability leading to leaky gut. – It can alter the ratio of good and bad gut bacteria and lead to dysbiosis, thereby dampening the immunity as 80% of the immunity lies in the gut. – Unmanaged stress can also result in behavioural changes when it comes to eating and make us binge eat, overeat or reach out for excess sugar, tea, coffee, fattening foods, fried foods that can further damage the gut. Deep breathing, yoga, meditation, gratitude practice, positive affirmations, visualisations, acceptance, sound therapy, art, are some of the best and most effective ways to manage stress levels on a day-to-day basis.
