[06:48] Ways to Heal Your Gut Issues

There are health issues that can’t be solved with food, and it’s a common misconception for people to go on a restrictive diet, a low FODMAP diet, or even a gluten-free diet. For some people, a gluten-free diet is very powerful but you want to get tested first. Oftentimes, food is not the problem, rather, it’s a symptom. For instance, if someone is reacting really strongly to gluten, dairy, eggs, or certain vegetables, the problem is not the food itself – but that’s because the gut is messed up.

[08:16] The Role of Supplements to Promote Gut Health

If you’re wanting to heal your gut issues, your energy issues, and your hormones, supplements are the answer – and personalized supplements are the answer. If you have been having gut issues for decades, you may be taking action. The question is if you’re taking the right action. It’s just not about going to another doctor’s visit. It’s time to try something new, such as taking personalized supplements. The medical community can be very disempowering as they’re giving you solutions that aren’t really solutions. At Gutpersonal, they empower everyone to eliminate gut issues – for good – through a personalized approach.
