Ditch the Gas and Bloat
Gastrointestinal health is not something that people talk about very often. Since it deals with the stomach, the bowels, the intestines, and with digestion and defecation, it can be an embarrassing topic, especially when something is amiss. If you are suffering from embarrassing gastrointestinal issues, you are not alone. You should also know that health and healing is possible. Before you worry about that, however, it is important to determine whether or not you are experiencing the symptoms of a gastrointestinal upset or disorder.
One common symptom is changes in your bowel movements. These changes can vary greatly from person to person and from disorder to disorder. Some people will get diarrhea, having to go to the bathroom often and sometimes with little control over when. Others will have the opposite problem and will not be able to use the bathroom without the aid of a laxative or other product. Other signs to look out for include changes in the color or consistency of bowel movements and blood in the stool. For some people, excess gas and bloating may show up in addition to these symptoms or all on their own.
Heartburn and unexplained weight loss may also indicate problems with your gastrointestinal health. If you notice any of these symptoms it’s important to visit a healthcare practioner, who can diagnose you with a condition if one is present. In addition to working with a healthcare practioner, you can find health and healing through natural health products, such as those available through My Remedy Shop.
