What causes gut problems?
While antibiotics are sometimes necessary, the overuse of antibiotics can harm your health. Not only the oral antibiotics, but also the use of antibacterial soaps, wipes, and sprays. Antibiotics kill both the bad and good bacteria.
#2 Chlorinated Drinking water
A necessary evil. To filter chlorine, use a good filtration system.
Eating a diet low in fermentable carbohydrates hinders your ability to populate your healthy gut flora.
#4 Hormonal Birth Control Methods
Mess with your estrobolome.
#5 Over-the-counter medications
Especially antiacids and pain/fever reducers.
#6 Refined sugar and processed foods
These foods promote the growth of bad bacteria in the gut and hinder the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Pesticides, herbicides, glyphosate, and environmental chemicals can negatively shift the microbiome.
