The secret to a healthy gut with dōTERRA

December 23, 2016 jamiesmith

We’ve all felt that common ache after eating a heavy, rich meal. The bloating, gas and other gut discomforts are never fun, but did you know that problems with your gut can lead to other, more long-term health problems?


More than 70 percent of your immune system exists in your gut and having proper gut health is key to living a healthy life. The DigestZen product line is the answer for your gut health. These digestive health products provide necessary targeted solutions for optimal digestive function and comfort. From an oil blend, to highly effective digestive enzymes and the best probiotics on the planet, this product line offers the “Zen of digestion.” The products offer the best relief from a big holiday meal or digestive concerns any time of year!


Why is gut health important?

A properly functioning digestive system is not only essential for food nutrient absorption, but also performs critical immune and detoxification functions in the body. Compromised digestive function can result in problems such as energy deficiencies, compromised immunities, weight gain, and gastrointestinal discomfort—just to name a few!

Some of the most common gut-related complaints include:

  • Abdominal pain/tenderness
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Constipation
  • Crohn’s disease/Ulcerative Colitis
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Gas
  • Compromised intestinal mobility
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Skin irritations

What causes these problems in the gut? First, let me explain that the human digestive tract is home to trillions of microorganisms, which are collectively known as the microbiome. These microbes play a vital part in our gut health, supporting digestion and the synthesis of vitamins.

At any given moment, each person has two to six pounds of microbes living in and on them. This amazing ecosystem of trillions of microbes contains bacteria and other microorganisms that are both beneficial and detrimental to your health.


Your microbiome, a community of bacteria and other microorganisms, carries out important work the body cannot do itself. While some species process dietary fiber, others synthesize essential vitamins.

Keeping your microbiome – the ecosystem of microorganisms living in and on your body – healthy, is important for good health. It’s when your microorganisms are out of balance—either you have too much of something or not enough of another type—when your gut health is compromised and symptoms begin to appear.


And by “symptoms,” I don’t mean the occasional gas. These symptoms can include not sleeping, depression, lack of strong immune function, and what I call the 4 A’s: allergies, arthritis, asthma and autoimmune challenges. It’s important to also note that kids are just as susceptible to these problems. That’s why dōTERRA has probiotics formulated just for kids.
