Your gut microbiome refers to all the bacteria, fungi, and microorganisms that inhabit your gastrointestinal tract. Aging, health choices, and the environment can affect your gut microbiome and influence your metabolism, immune system, appetite, and more. Do you wish to restore your natural balance and improve your gut health? We offer microbiome balancing programs at Timeless Wellness Clinic in Pleasanton, CA.
What Is Microbiome Balancing?
Good gut health contributes to wellbeing. Did you know that many skin problems, such as acne, dermatitis, and eczema, are related to your gut health? Microbiome balancing is an individualized program that aims to address the root cause of your health issues by restoring natural gut balance. We help you detoxify, clarify the skin, and work on your dermatological problems inside and out.
Detailed History and Physical Exam
The first step in the program is to evaluate your digestive function, identify pathogens, and analyze your unique skin condition. We start with a detailed history and physical exam. Through microbiome testing, we can evaluate the makeup of your gut microbiome and detect the presence of different microorganisms. We can gain information about:
- The diversity of your gut microbiome
- How microorganisms are affecting your health
- How dietary modifications can improve your condition
Diet Program and Coaching
On your second visit, we’ll introduce you to a facial treatment that will address your external skin problems. The treatment will work to exfoliate, moisturize, and make your skin firmer. Expect to see visible improvements on issues such as acne, wrinkles, fine lines, and more.
We’ll also review the results of your microbiome testing. Your results will be the basis of our personalized diet program and coaching, which encourage beneficial gut bacteria to flourish in your gastrointestinal tract.
Repairing and Resolving Gut Balance
The last phase of the program involves the repairing and resolving of your gut issues as well as achieving skin balance. We will remove disruptive food, bacteria, and toxins that cause your health issues. Through your diet program, we will advise you to avoid certain foods and ingredients. The focus will be on nutritious foods that promote microbiome diversity and good gut health.
Finally, we’ll help you maintain the best results by providing feedback, coaching, and making recommendations. Resolving gut balance for the long term also involves making certain lifestyle choices, such as getting adequate rest and reducing stress.
The Benefits of Microbiome Balancing
With a balanced gut microbiome, you can achieve a healthier weight, boost your metabolism, and enhance your mood. In addition, your skin health can also significantly improve due to the improvement of your skin’s protective barrier. After completing our microbiome balancing program, you can obtain the following health benefits.
A healthy gut microbiome contains diverse microorganisms that aid in digestion. Do you suffer from symptoms like bloating and indigestion? One of the most incredible benefits of a microbiome balancing program is improved digestion. As a result, your body will be able to fully digest and utilize energy from the food you eat.
Stronger Immune System
The immune system is responsible for protecting your body from pathogens, viruses, and harmful microorganisms. But did you know that your gut microbiome also acts as a line of defense against ingested pathogens? A healthy gut secretes antimicrobial compounds, fights pathogens, and supports your immune system.
Better Bone Health
Having diverse bacteria in the gut is also linked to good bone health. With a balanced microbiome, you can improve the absorption of calcium from the food you eat. As a result, you can get stronger, healthier bones.
Enhanced Mental Health
Did you know that your daily mood and food choices can be affected by your gut microbiome? The gut and the brain are linked by certain microorganisms that affect the release of neurotransmitters. Therefore, your gut microbiome can influence your mood and cognition. With good gut health, you can achieve better mental clarity and better control of your dietary choices.
What Steps Can You Take To Restore Gut Health?
Your daily lifestyle choices, such as exercise, diet, and physical activities, can affect your microbiome’s stability, diversity, and resiliency. Making the right choices can help promote a diverse microbiome that ensures you have good gut health. A diverse microbiome contains trillions of good bacteria and other beneficial microorganisms like fungi. To achieve this diversity, you can focus on consuming nutritious fermented foods and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Focus on Fiber Intake
Eating enough vegetables is a great way to ensure that you’re getting sufficient prebiotic fiber. We consider this when developing your personalized diet program. Food such as asparagus, onions, and artichokes are excellent sources of prebiotic fiber. Bananas, garlic, and whole grains are also rich in fiber and can easily be incorporated into your daily diet.
Minimize the Consumption of Processed Foods
Cutting down or eliminating processed food starves the bad bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. To make sure that you have more good bacteria in your microbiome, we recommend you refrain from consuming saturated fats, sugar, and trans fats. Lowering your alcohol consumption also contributes to better gut health.
In addition to following our diet and coaching programs, adopting a good exercise routine can also benefit your gastrointestinal tract in the long run. Simple exercises such as walking, running, and aerobics can keep you healthy and boost your mood. Staying active also helps improve digestion and promotes diverse gut flora.
Reduce Stress and Sleep More
We encourage you to sleep more and reduce stress as a way to balance your gut microbiome. Sleep deprivation can cause poor gut health. Therefore, by maintaining regular sleep schedules and making time for yourself, you can feel better inside and out.
