Gut Feel: 7 Ways To Help You Restore And Maintain A Healthy Gut

Your gut is the home for numerous microorganisms that help you in digestion, better absorption of nutrients, and prevention of infections by other pathogens. A healthy gut means a healthy you.

Anything that you eat can either nourish or degrade your digestive organs. And when we refer to the gut, we are actually talking about the entire digestive tract. Your gut collects nutrients, keeps toxins from permeating cells, and assists in healthy living. In order to avoid constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, or abdominal cramps, here are 7 ways you can promote your gut health and restore it.

  • Avoid abusing antibiotics – By abusing, we mean overusing, as they kill bacteria in your gut. Bacteria in your gut might conjure up a ghastly image, but in reality, it is these bacteria that process food into energy. The disruption of intestinal harmony can affect your overall well-being.
  • Find your fix in fermented foods – Fermented foods, such as kefir, yoghurt, kimchi, and fermented tofu help in assisting your gut with a range of beneficial bacteria. Our gut is home to around 100 trillion microorganisms, and preparing fermented foods at home while ditching pasteurised store-bought options can help in maintaining the level of microorganisms in the gut.
  • Count on coconut oil – A superfood in itself, coconut oil is packed with healthy saturated fats, such as lauric, capric, and caprylic acids – which play a pivotal part in healing your gut. Organic, cold-pressed, or extra-virgin coconut oils are packed with antifungal and antimicrobial properties, and using it is one of the more effective and natural ways to clean your GI (gastrointestinal) system.
  • Indulge in intermittent fasting – Giving your body a pause from digesting food on a day-to-day basis can be extremely healing and cooling. Hence, intermittent fasting that limits your daily calories to 500-700, is a great way to repair your inner gut lining.
  • Probiotics, please – Probiotics help in keeping your insides flourishing, with a healthy reboot of beneficial germs. Refuelling your body with probiotic-rich foods not only helps in healing chronic digestive issues, but also helps in fighting against medications and stress that might upset this balance.
  • Water, water, everywhere! – Think of your entire digestive tract as one big water slide. Now imagine what would happen to all the food you consume if there is a lack of water. Drinking 7-8 glasses of water in a day is essential to make sure that your gut remains healthy, while flushing toxins out through faeces and urine.
  • Decide on diet dilemmas – Avoid heavy intake of starches, grains, and sugars in your diet as they lead to inflammation and yeast growth. Avoiding these foods leads your intestinal tract to come back to its normal permeability. With millions of people suffering from leaky gut conditions, knowingly or unknowingly, it becomes all the more imperative to take care of your gut. If you follow the above protocol, you will be well on your way to treating your gut health.

    Mental Wellbeing

    Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.


    The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.


    We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

    Organic Beauty

    Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.


    Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
