Improving & strengthening your digestive system
“All disease begins in the gut”
The digestive tract is a tightly controlled structure opening from the mouth to the anus. It is inside the body, but is between the outside world and our inner self. It is structured this way to protect us from potentially damaging microbes, and to tightly control what is absorbed.
Since the goal is to utilize good stuff, and to eliminate bad stuff, one of the stomach’s responsibilities is to kill any pathogens in our food. This is why it is so acidic. Many practitioners believe the root of most chronic health issues begins with impaired stomach acidity. If a pathogen does get past the stomach, the body has a second line of defense in the large intestines, called the Microbiome.
A healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system, heart health, brain health, improved mood and effective digestion. There are a number of lifestyle changes you can make to positively affect your gut health and your overall health as a result.
