Gut Health and Cancer

70% of your immune system is located in your gut, so if your gut health isn’t at its best, you can end up suffering from a host of different diseases and health complications that stem from low immunity—cancer possibly being one of them.

If you’re suffering from gut problems, or your cancer is refusing to get better, you should reach out to the medical professionals at Infuze MD: The Cancer Center, to get a thorough checkup and start on a treatment plan that is personalized for your body.

Why is Gut Health Important?

Did you know that you have one hundred trillion vital organisms naturally colonizing inside your intestine? This group of bacteria is known as the gut microbiota

Your gut health refers to the balance of these bacteria in the different parts of your gastrointestinal tract, that are responsible for helping your body break down food and absorb essential nutrients. These essential functions can only progress smoothly if your digestive system carries the correct balance of immune cells and bacteria. When your gut health is not good, your immunity will decrease, and you can suffer from many health complications.

 If you’re suffering from irregular bowel movements, nausea and vomiting, heartburn, and abdominal pain, then it is likely your gut is out of balance, and you need to make changes to your diet and lifestyle with the help of a medical professional so you can return to good health again.

Taking Care of Your Gut Microbiome

Every individual has a different gut microbiome, however, there are certain general steps you can take to ensure your gut is healthy.

Eating foods that are high in fiber can help you support the bacteria in your gut. Eating probiotics that contain beneficial bacteria such as sauerkraut and Greek yogurt is another great way to ensure your gut microbiome remains balanced. Alongside consuming probiotics, you should also consume prebiotics such as inulin to feed the good bacteria, so your gut remains in good health.

Can Gut Health Cause Cancer?

Recent research has actually uncovered a surprising link between gut health and cancer. Research shows that the immune system requires healthy gut microbiota to function properly. Studies have disclosed that when there is a lack of balance in gut bacteria, tumor progression may be increased and the patient’s response to cancer therapy may decline.

One recent study published in British Medical Journals shows that certain chemo drugs lose their efficacy when the gut microbiota is out of balance. However, when the microbiota is restored, patients start responding positively to the same chemotherapy drugs.

If you have been suffering from cancer, you may be wondering how you can manage your symptoms and reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. The best way to start fighting off your cancer is by treating your body holistically and not just putting a band-aid on the symptoms.
