As Hippocrates said, ‘All Disease begins in the Gut’.
Our gut really is the epicentre of our health and we truly need to nurture it to reap the optimal health benefits. As well as diet, there are a few other not so obvious things we can be doing to improve our gut health. Here are my top 5 tips to maintain a healthy gut, mind and body:

So, there you have it, 5 tips to improve your gut health naturally. Making all or any of these changes might just be the key to achieving better gastrointestinal and overall health.
Lastly, knowing what is going on inside your gut can also be pivotal in achieving optimal health. If implemented diet or lifestyle changes aren’t helping you kick those health goals, then it might be time to dive deeper and take steps to have an analysis done of your microbiome to identify if there are any unwelcome pathogens or overgrowths taking up residence.
Many of us suffer with bloating or ‘funny tummies’ and just live with it. Although these complaints may be common, they’re definitely not normal. Don’t guess what might be going on when you can get a simple test from your doctor to help resolve any issues. Remember, if we have an imbalance in our gut, then we will have imbalances in our health.
Hey there, I’m Alex, from Alexfergus.com. In this blog post I’m going to talk about the most important biohacks I’ve learned over the last two years.
Because this is a guest blog post, let me first tell you a little bit about myself:
I’ve been optimizing my performance for years if not decades. My journey started a couple of years ago when I was aiming to improve my sports performance.
I competed in rowing and bodybuilding, for instance. At first, I was focusing on mainstream dietary and exercise strategies to enhance my results.
I ate a low-fat diet, for instance, with lots of grains, because such diets were recommended by governments all around the world. I also trained myself into the ground, sometimes exercising several hours a day.
One day I just crashed, had no energy left in the tank, and decided to take matters into my own hands. I mean: I was doing everything correct, so I should have gotten great results with the “eat less, exercise more” paradigm, right?
Over the years, I learned that most of my previous belief were flat out wrong. I began training (much) less, included many new foods into my diet such as bone broth, grass-fed beef, full-fat milk, butter, organ meats, and shellfish.
I also began focusing on domains that I previously didn’t have a second thought about such as sleep quality.
Today I wear blue-blocking glasses several hours before bedtime, tape my mouth to improve my sleep quality at night, sleep on the ultimate Samina mattress, and use red light therapy to push my sleep over the edge.
And yet, throughout the years, I’ve also learned that I never stop learning.
In this blog post, I’ll therefore cover the cutting-edge biohacks that I’ve become acquainted with in the last few years.
