Improving digestion to fix your gut, and your health!
The digestive system is a complex system. Although it is responsible for breaking down our food into nutrients that are utilized by the rest of the body and eliminating the waste, 80% of our immune system is in our gut, and our gut has its own nervous system, the enteric nervous system, which has more neurons than our brain, and is often referred to as our “second brain.” Therefore, everything we put into our mouths can potentially have life-altering effects on our mind and body.
However, most people are eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) which is mainly comprised of grains, dairy, simple carbohydrates, sugars, processed foods, and unhealthy oils. This type of eating, plus gut damaging antibiotics, and prescription drugs can further throw off the intricate balance in the digestive tract, leading to a compromised digestive function, which can cause many digestive issues, as well as, other health related issues.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, eating and digesting well, are the central aspects of health.
A healthy digestive system is at the root of all wellness. Our digestive system is intimately connected to our immune and nervous systems, and being able to absorb all vital nutrients and eliminate all excess products efficiently is necessary for the health of all the bodies tissues, such as muscles, nerves, organs, blood and vessels.
