What are your belly habits? This is a question our guest on Late Night Health, Sherry Torkos B.Sc.Phm., R. Ph., holistic pharmacist and author of more than a dozen books on natural health says many people don’t know the answer to. As many pharmacists are, she is on the receiving end of a lot of questions from patients who may not know if and when a doctor’s visit is in order. One easy way we can maintain our health is by practicing healthy belly habits on a day-to-day basis.
With everything we eat passing throughout the gut, it is important that our gut is prepared for good digestion with the help of friendly gut bacteria. If you do not have enough good bacteria, an imbalance can occur known as dysbiosis which is commonly linked to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, and colorectal cancer.
Sherry Torkos shares some eat, move and chill healthy belly habits to incorporate and also warns of belly busters to break. She says including prebiotics and probiotics can help and can answer your personal probiotic questions at: www.probiotics.com.
