Keeping a Healthy Gut – Hackettstown
Serving Hackettstown and Surrounding Areas
Keeping a Healthy Gut
Are you currently struggling with gut health (bloating, constipation, etc.) or weight loss? Gut health, the root of an all around healthy body starts with a clean and plant rich diet that can help to prevent and reverse future diagnoses including obesity, inflammation, type 2 diabetes, insomnia, and more. For constipation troubles, some factors that trigger this issue include dehydration, lack of fiber in your diet, certain medications, not enough exercise, and irritable bowel syndrome, to name a few.
Some home remedies include:
- Increasing your daily water intake
- Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning
- Avoiding caffeinated beverages which may worsen constipation
- Increasing walking, exercising, and other physical activities
- Increase your fruit and vegetable intake
- Increase your natural fiber intake

Small Changes Make a Big Difference
Our patients have reaped the benefits of changing their routines by switching to a clean and plant forward diet, incorporating intermittent fasting, and active lifestyles. I will work directly with you to analyze your specific conditions and any health concerns you may have. We’ve had patients lose up to 115 lbs. on our methods. For a healthy local activity, explore Stevens State Park, where there are six miles of marked trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. You could also try a CrossFit class at Strong Together Fitness or Gallery Barre, a mix of yoga, dance, and pilates.
Eating Clean Can be Fun!
Sticking to a whole foods, clean diet is anything but boring. Nature holds an abundance of fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes to create endless recipes to take part in. I can create a meal plan that works with your specific needs. Just take a look at our Grocery Shopping List – you will find tons of options for exciting meals during your weight loss journey. Eating clean may require a bit more time in the kitchen, but it will be worth it in the end. Making meals from scratch with less processed foods might take some getting used to but we have some delicious, simple recipes to get you started.
