Digestive Health

 

Immunity and Your Gut

 

Roughly 80% of your immune system is found in your intestines. From the time food enters your mouth until you eliminate urine or fecal matter, your digestive system is working hard to process, break down, absorb and eliminate.  This is why healthy gut flora is emphasized so widely in the world of natural healing.

 

Signs of an unhealthy digestive system manifest in any of the following disturbances:

  • Crohn’s
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Diverticulitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Chronic Constipation
  • Chronic Diarrhea or soft stool
  • Liver/gall bladder disorders
  • Candidiasis/yeast infections
  • Bloating
  • Repeated viral, bacterial or parasitic infections
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Chronic fatigue symptoms
  • Allergy symptoms including sinusitis, low grade cold or flu symptoms
  • Skin issues: eczema, psoriasis, acne

 

It is easy to see why choosing the best foods for your body will also resolve many disease states.
