The Gut Healing Process

Gut Healing

I am the vengeance, I am the night, I am probiotics!

Our gut is home to about 1,000 trillion bacteria. These bacteria perform a number of functions that are vital to our health. However, good bacteria and bad bacteria cannot live in harmony, and so they begin to wage war within your digestive system between good and evil. The probiotics like kefir seek to evict the bad bacteria from your gut, which can result in a few unpleasant but generally harmless symptoms. This period of adjustment in your digestive system is called “gut flora repopulation” or “healing crisis”, and it can take anywhere from days to months depending on the current state of your digestive system.

Detox symptoms are temporary -

With the introduction of good bacteria, the body’s natural healing and cleansing ability is enhanced. Thus, some temporary symptoms may include headache, nausea, diarrhoea, abdominal discomfort/cramping, bloating, Gas and Skin eruptions such as acne. A very toxic body may benefit from a slower cleansing to avoid this discomfort. If the body is less toxic to begin with, these symptoms may never be experienced.
