Did you know there are a zillion things that can contribute to us getting sick?
Well, maybe not a zillion, but certainly many … some of which are mentioned in the list above.
Thankfully, our bodies have an incredible in-built system designed to keep us healthy.
It’s called our Innate Immune System.
However, it needs us to make good diet and lifestyle decisions in order to support it.
If not, it’s unable to help you to thrive.
- Your energy will be flat.
- Your mental clarity will be impaired.
- You will struggle to walk up stairs without puffing.
- Your limbs and muscles will become stiff and sore.
- Any “bug” that comes on the scene, will knock you for six … and so on.
Healthy Shift Worker Episode 26:
Shift workers are notorious for experiencing gut discomfort thanks to our disruptive lifestyle, which can certainly impact on our overall health and well-being. One of which includes increasing our susceptibility to developing Leaky Gut Syndrome, otherwise known as intestinal permeability which can lead to an overgrowth of pathogens, nutritional deficiencies, allergies, autoimmune disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – to name a few.
To understand more about gut health specific to shift workers, Audra has tracked down avid surfer and “gut guru” Kale Brock who is the author of two published books – The Gut Healing Protocol and the Art of Probiotic Nutrition. Kale’s best mate also happens to be a shift worker too so can really appreciate some of our struggles!
Tune in to hear Kale explain exactly what is a “leaky gut”, and why nourishing and supporting the function of our gut lining is so incredibly important for anyone who happens to work irregular hours.
