No doubt, these symptoms can be very troubling and can interfere with your day’s activities. Often people complain at least one of these problems, if not all.

What is a gut? Gut constitutes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon — which convert the food you eat into the nutrients to help you survive and live. It can become sensitive when it cannot perform its function at its optimum.
