The Gut-Immunity Connection: How Your Gut Health Influences 80% of Your Immune System

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

Written By: The Balanced Friends

It's true - 80% of our immune system is rooted in our gut. This underscores just how vital gut health truly is, especially in the face of prevalent colds, flu, and viruses. Taking care of our gut becomes paramount in fortifying our body's defense against illness.

Gut-Immunity Connection

At Balanced Friends, we specialize in assisting clients in naturally rebalancing their gut. The results we witness are nothing short of astounding. Those who used to be "sick all the time" go months without a sniffle! Here are some of the common symptoms of gut imbalance that we regularly encounter in our virtual wellness practice:

  • Weak Immunity/Recurrent Illnesses

  • Acid Reflux

  • Digestive Issues

  • Gas and Bloating

  • Constipation or Diarrhea

  • Nutritional Deficiencies

  • Stomach Pain

  • Mood Swings

  • Skin Issues (Acne, Rashes)

  • Brain Fog

  • Low Energy

Given that gut health forms the foundation of our overall well-being as well as strengthens our immunity, these symptoms are indicative of a broader health picture. They are frequently observed in our private wellness clients and are experiences we've navigated ourselves.

If you're grappling with gut imbalance and want to strengthen your gut-immunity connection, seeking guidance from a holistic practitioner is imperative. The intricacies of the gut demand a high-quality, tailored protocol for effective rebalancing.

It's crucial to note that there are no quick fixes for gut health. We empathize with the frustration that arises from companies peddling "miracle" products. The recent trend of "candida cleanses" and "candida diets" often falls short of their promises. We're here to affirm that investing in such solutions may not yield the desired results.

We often encounter clients who've undergone a candida cleanse or gut protocol, only to find a persisting gut imbalance in their functional medicine labs. This outcome doesn't surprise us. Correcting gut imbalance requires a specific protocol designed to target bad bacteria, replenish the good, and ultimately heal and seal the gut lining.

Diet and lifestyle modifications are essential, but they alone won't suffice. There's no one-size-fits-all solution. Companies may market as such, but it's imperative to seek a more personalized approach.

A prime example of this is the current probiotic craze. Most contain dairy, which can be problematic for those with a hidden dairy sensitivity. Different strains of bacteria serve specific purposes, and not all probiotics are created equal. It's unwise to embark on gut healing alone, for many reasons. Trusting a qualified provider to guide you is crucial.

Your gut health is a significant aspect of your overall well-being, and it's worth investing in a trustworthy practitioner. The last thing you want is to inadvertently cause harm or waste money on fleeting products. I speak from experience, having spent thousands in pursuit of correcting my own gut imbalance. With the right guidance, I've managed to overcome it naturally. Now, I'm dedicated to helping others do the same which is why we designed our virtual gut detox bootcamp! A step by step guide with information on how to obtain gut balance for the long haul. It's the exact program that fixed my gut and fixed my life! Learn more about our virtual Gut Detox Bootcamp here. We can't wait to see you in camp friend!
