Lazy gut syndrome may be unknowingly triggered when the body is subjected to one or more of the following conditions:
The gut relies on muscular motion to move waste in the right direction. When this motion is blocked or slowed by external forces, the digestive tract may become clogged and blocked.
Abusing certain medications, especially laxatives, will create imbalance in the gut and inevitably lead to painful symptoms of lazy bowels.
Anorexia and bulimia can onset lazy gut syndrome and do lasting damage to the digestive tract of the individual.
