Symptoms Gut Flora May Not Be “Up to Par”:
⚡️Inconsistent bowel movements
⚡️Mood disorders like anxiety/depression
⚡️Allergies / Seasonal Allergies
Foods Notorious for Causing Gas & Bloating:
⚡️Broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage
⚡️Asparagus, mushrooms, onions
⚡️Dairy products (ice cream, yogurt, cheese)
⚡️Gluten (breads, pastas, tortillas)
⚡️Beans & lentils
Supplements to Check Out:

⚡️L-Glutamine (slowly inc dose up to 5g daily)

**Careful with Kombucha – Yeast lives in all of us and it’s possible to overgrow it
Things to Consider:
⚡️30-35g fiber daily + tons of H2O
⚡️Food Intolerance testing (EverlyWell tests 96 foods for $200. You can also do 150 foods through AnyLabTestNow for $350)
⚡️Persistent issues may point towards a bigger underlying problem, like Candida, SIBO, or H.Pylori**
**with these,we’ve got too many critters or not enough critters living in there. Each requires it’s own specific test, so we’d suggest looking up symptoms and then pull the trigger on whichever test seems the most likely.
