7 Factors That Could Be Wreaking Havoc On Your Digestion

Gut check – is your digestion playing up? I know from my own experience that digestive issues can make your life miserable. Here are seven factors that could be wreaking havoc on your digestion.


The foods you eat have a significant impact on your digestion. Processed and sugary foods, gluten, and unhealthy fats can all wreak havoc on your gut. Instead, opt for healthy fats like olive, avocado, or coconut oil, and focus on nutrient-dense, whole foods.

Food Intolerances

If you have a food intolerance, consuming certain foods can trigger digestive symptoms. To identify potential triggers, you can avoid common culprits or get tested for specific intolerances.

Medications or Antibiotics

While medication can be necessary, it can also disrupt the balance of bacteria in your gut. If you’re on medication or antibiotics, consider exploring alternative treatments like CBD or ginger to support your digestion.


Stress is a well-known contributor to digestive issues. If you’re feeling stressed, try incorporating relaxation techniques like meditation or deep breathing into your daily routine.

Leaky Gut

Leaky gut is a condition in which the lining of your intestines becomes more permeable, allowing bacteria and other toxins to leak into your bloodstream. Eating the right foods and avoiding stress can help counteract this issue.

Heavy Metal Toxicity

Heavy metals can build up in your body and contribute to digestive problems. Check your products for heavy metals, and consider incorporating foods that help detoxify your body.

Environmental Toxins

The chemicals and toxins in your environment can also impact your gut health. Avoid plastic containers and bottles, and focus on eating organic, non-GMO foods whenever possible.

If you’re looking to improve your digestive health, changing your lifestyle and diet can be a great place to start. Incorporating nutrient-rich, unrefined, and organic foods, practising relaxation techniques, and avoiding potential triggers can all help support a healthy gut.
