A troubled tum? What could be bothering you?

1. A RECENT BUG

With more bugs circulating and successfully capturing their hosts than ever, now that we’re in our post-lockdown venture, many of us are complaining about being struck down by some ‘Super Bugs’. Have we just forgotten what it feels like to be ill, or are these bugs genuinely more ruthless than ever?

Well, it seems that you may not be imagining it, as experts have admitted that having had a reduced exposure to bugs over the last year or so could mean that our resilience has dropped a little, and/or our immune system is just a little over-reactive, as a result of being out of touch for an unprecedented length of time.

This means that no symptoms are off-limits and digestive symptoms are no exception. The pesky viruses that give rise to the usual raft of cold and flu symptoms can also easily affect your digestion. It could, however, be a more acute digestive upset that you’ve been struggling with – the likes of Norovirus making you feel poorly. Either way, nausea or unruly toilet habits may be leaving you feeling pretty weary.

2. A CHRONIC IMBALANCE IN GOOD GUT BACTERIA

If there’s been no obvious worsening of your symptoms, but actually you’ve come to realise that some unwanted symptoms have been bubbling away under the surface for some time now (quite literally, in many cases!), then there could be an imbalance in your microbiota or good gut bacteria.

This state can easily give rise to stubborn bloating, flatulence, or altered bowel habits, and can eventually make for quite an unhappy gut longer-term.

Did you know that mental health symptoms, including low mood, stress or anxiety, have strong links with an unhappy gut, due to the well-established, bi-directional gut-brain axis?

3. OVERINDULGENCE HAS THROWN YOU OFF

It’s the party season after all, and after the restricted times we’ve had, many of us are looking forward to enjoying the party season, or at least whatever the 2021-2022 version turns out to be.

However, whilst it’s all fun and games at the time, you might be left feeling a little worse for wear the next day once the overload of sugar, salt, fat or alcohol has landed and is being filtered through your system by some of your key digestive organs, such as the liver. As a result, you may be left feeling a little sickly for a day or so whilst your system resets and recovers.

4. BLOATING AS A RESULT OF IBS

Another condition which doesn’t take a break just because it’s the party season is IBS – boo! However, as with many conditions, really understanding your symptoms and treating them as the individual collection of symptoms that they are, can help you get better results.

In many cases, going back to basics is the best approach initially when it comes to IBS – that is, drinking plenty of water, but not alongside your meals, and chewing your food very thoroughly. Then we have the remedies to consider for taking it to the next level.

WHAT’S GOT YOU COVERED?

Silicol® Gel is often a useful first step if your tummy is feeling really sensitive. It can help to get a number of the tricky digestive scenarios I’ve detailed above under control. Silicol® Gel is particularly soothing, whilst also being protective against any further violation of your gut lining. In addition, it works well to help eliminate any offending pathogens it comes across as it travels through your system – so it’s really got you covered.
