Gastrointestinal Health

Improving gut health is often the key to improving your overall health, but if you don’t know how to support and nourish your gut, you’ll continue to suffer from different symptoms and conditions. At MINT Nutrition in Mooresville, NC, we offer personalized health and wellness plans that we custom-tailor to your needs to target the gut, improve its health, and in doing so, eliminate not only negative symptoms but also improve your overall health. 

Gut Health

The state of your gut health all comes down to bacteria balance. The goal is to have more good bacteria in your gut than bad. Balancing your gut microbiome requires a delicate balance, but it’s not impossible to achieve. At MINT Nutrition, we create personalized plans specifically designed to promote gut health, which, in turn, can resolve certain health conditions and reduce and even completely eliminate negative health symptoms.

What Are the Signs of Poor Gut Health?

Problems within the gut can extend to and affect other bodily systems, creating negative symptoms that can interact with and affect the quality of your daily life. Some of the most common symptoms of an unhealthy gut include:

  • The development of certain autoimmune conditions and disorders
  • Poor quality skin, including rashes and skin conditions
  • Digestive issues, including IBS, diarrhea, chronic bloating
  • Poor immune system
  • Poor quality sleep
  • Anxiety, depression, emotional instability, and mood swings
  • Cravings for unhealthy foods, specifically sugary foods
  • Inability to lose weight

The Benefits of Improving the Health of Your Gut

The primary goal in developing a treatment plan to improve the health of the gut is to increase the number of healthy bacteria in the gut. We can do this with lifestyle and dietary changes and, in doing so, help you achieve a healthier gut and reduce unpleasant symptoms. Some of the main benefits of improving the health of your gut include the following:

  • Improved immunity
  • Improved digestion
  • Better sleep
  • Protection against certain diseases and health conditions
  • Improved energy levels
  • Better overall health and wellness
  • Healthy weight loss
  • Decreased inflammation

Personalized Gut Health Plans

Improving the health of your gut requires more than just taking a daily probiotic, although taking a probiotic is important. At MINT Nutrition, we take a science-based approach to addressing and troubleshooting gastrointestinal issues. Without targeted and specialized testing, combined with nutritional assessments and a detailed evaluation of personal health, lifestyle, and history, navigating the best way to improve the health of your gut can feel like entering a house of mirrors.

Providing the Guidance You Need

However, you don’t have to attempt this on your own. At MINT Nutrition, you’ll be surrounded by a team of healthcare providers who will work closely with you to determine the root cause of your gastrointestinal issues. We do this through a health assessment, one-on-one coaching, and designing a holistic plan to optimize your health.

We will perform functional labs to determine the root cause of your symptoms and primary issues and then make personalized recommendations and determine which supplements best meet your needs.

Health Assessment

One of the primary aspects of our personalized treatment plan is a personal health assessment. Before designing your treatment plan to improve your gut health, we need to assess your current health. During this health assessment, we will ask you some questions about your health history, your lifestyle, and the current symptoms you are dealing with.

This health assessment allows us to create a foundation on which we can build a customized treatment plan that will use a combination of dietary changes, lifestyle changes, and supplementation to improve the health of your gut and, in doing so, optimize your overall health.

One-On-One Coaching

Included in our treatment plan is one-on-one coaching. At MINT Nutrition, we will be your health advocates and give you the information and tools to empower you to make the best decisions for yourself, your current health, and your future health.

We will walk this health journey with you and be available to answer any questions along the way, provide the encouragement you need, and ensure that your personalized treatment plan is helping you achieve your health and wellness goals.

Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Plans

We also offer personalized lifestyle and medicine plans and will perform lab-based testing to get a baseline of your health and primary concerns. Bloodwork will help us get to the root of some of the primary issues affecting your body, and then we can move forward with a treatment plan. We can also perform hormonal and genetic testing and test your micronutrients and the protein makeup of your body. Our services are custom-tailored to fit your needs.

Personalized Nutrition Plans

We take a personalized approach to nutrition and lifestyle medicine at MINT Nutrition. We believe that food is medicine, and if your gut health is your primary concern, we will design a plan that includes foods that will nourish your body and promote healthy gut bacteria.

The goal is to have your healthy gut bacteria outnumber any bad gut bacteria, and by adding some specific foods to your diet, in combination with making lifestyle changes, we can help you achieve optimal gut health. Once you begin eating foods that support the health of your gut, you’ll notice changes in your negative symptoms, which will indicate that your gut is growing healthier by the day.

Invest in Your Gut Health

The health of your gut is so important because it affects every other area of your body, including digestion, hormone regulation, your immune system, and more. We can help you balance your gut microbiome and, by doing so, improve your overall health. We will provide you with a personalized program that gives you the tools and techniques you need not only to improve the health of your gut but maintain optimal health and wellness long-term.
