Welcome to The Pill Series Part 3: The Pill and Your Gut
If you have been following along so far, you may have noticed that I mentioned the pill in relation to gut health.
It may seem strange that the two are related, but let me break it down for you!
How Does the Pill Impact Gut Health?
The pill disrupts your gut microbiome and can increase the growth of BAD bacteria
The pill may cause inflammation in the gut
The pill may impact your immune system (which is largely found in your digestive tract)
Furthermore, this may lead to uncomfortable symptoms such as:
bloating and gas
irregular bowel movements
leaky gut / intestinal permeability
multiple food sensitivities
poor skin health
among other symptoms
How Can I Support My Gut Health?
Fermented Foods (if you have SIBO, this could exacerbate your symptoms)
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
