What causes poor gut health?
There're many reasons why you can experience poor gut health!
- Poor digestion, due to lack of proper chewing, lack of enough stomach acid, or not having digestive enzymes.
- Poor food absorption.
- Having an imbalance in the gut microbiome.
- Small intestine permeability (torn of the small intestinal lining, thus allowing food particles in the bloodstream).
- Lack of dietary fiber in your diet.
- Lots of stress, etc...
Signs of poor gut health
Signs of poor gut health vary from one person to another due to the different causes, below is a list of some signs that indicate that you're having poor health in the gut:
- Digestive issues like bloating, too much gas, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn,
- Autoimmune diseases, eg. rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid problems, lupus, etc...
- Skin issues like acne, eczema, and rosacea.
- Sleep problems,
- Mood disorders like depression or anxiety,
- Sugar cravings,
- Use of antibiotics,
- Frequent migraines,
Is soup good for gut health?
This carrot soup is one of the best gut soothing recipes! I don't mean it's the only soup to eat, lol.
However, eating a slow-cooked soup and/or a healthy smoothie is a great way to heal your gut. This is because you lift off the digestion process that demands your body a lot of energy, as you feed your body cells with the rich nutrients.
When on a gut-healing diet, avoid hot spices that can be irritants to the gut lining. However, use ginger and turmeric, both of which have healing properties.
I prefer them when fresh to powder form because roots have all their properties plus the essential oils compared to grounded ginger/turmeric which, has no essential oils and has lost some of their properties!
Carrot soup ingredients
For this remarkable carrot soup, you'll need
- Carrot; is high in dietary fiber which is easily digested, and quickly fermented by gut bacteria without causing gas.
- Fresh ginger; is known for soothing gut issues, it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidants that have shown to relieve gut inflammation.
- Fresh turmeric; contains curcumin which possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial in case of gut inflammation eg. inflammatory bowel disease.
- Apples: they have pectin (a fiber) which is easily released when apples are cooked. Pectin can help repair the gut lining in case of a leaky gut.
- Green onions/scallions; belong to the onion family which is high in inulin, a prebiotic fiber beneficial to your gut microbiome and can stimulate bowel movements. However, onion bulbs might cause gas, that's why I recommend using only green onions.
- Parsley; it's rich in antioxidants that can help reduce inflammation and improve digestion by reducing gas and bloating. Parsley flavonoids have a remarkable regulatory effect on the gut microbiota imbalance.
This light and healthy, luxuriously creamy carrot soup is a remarkable gut healing soup that can help you in your healing journey! Make it quite often, and if you are severely ill, make this carrot every day for at least ten days.
Keep eating healthy nutrient-dense food to heal and always remember,
you've the power to heal yourself, Githu.

- When on a gut health healing diet, try all you can to buy either organic or healthy grown produce! I, for instance, buy fresh produce from local farmers who use no chemicals in their farms, although they aren't labeled "organic" because it's a cumbersome process here in France!
- In this case, no need of peeling your veggies and fruits, peels are a source of healthy nutrients and dietary fiber.
