How well do you trust your gut?
Your digestive health plays a HUGE role in your whole health. Did you know that bloating or heartburn can trigger problems with allergies? The root of problems with allergies, arthritis, autoimmune disease, rashes, acne, mood disorders, chronic fatigue, dementia, and even cancer may be traced to problems with the gastrointestinal system. Having trouble losing weight? Your body’s filter might be clogged.
The health of your gut determines what nutrients and toxins are filtered throughout the body. Damage to the gut can cause food allergies and inflammation throughout the body. That affects arthritis, blood pressure, headaches, reproductive health – you name it.
The gut’s nervous system has even more neurotransmitters from the brain. When there’s interference in communication between the gut and the brain, your whole health can suffer.
Your digestive system helps to eliminate toxins filtered out by the liver. It breaks down food, separating the vitamins and minerals that nourish the brain and body. When there’s a breakdown in the process, the whole body is affected. Over The Counter remedies (a multi-billion dollar industry) may fix one symptom and cause another.
