Many conditions can be halted, improved and even reversed. We do this by addressing the cause instead of the symptoms.
“All Diseases begin it the Gut” Hippocrates realized this already over 2000 years ago. He followed this profound thought up with “You are what you Eat”. Both sayings may begin to sound like a cliché, but they are truer than ever.
While in degenerative conditions heredity has a contribution to the cause, in most cases can be related to poor food choices. How does an unhealthy diet affect our health?
Not only does modern diet lack nutrients, it is sugary, fat and contains toxins, antibiotics and growth hormones. This food causes inflammation in the digestive track. The wall of the gut is a barrier that decides what goes into the body and what must go out. Inflammation makes this important barrier permeable, allowing bacteria, fungus, viruses and other particles and toxins to pass into our bloodstream. This condition is called “Leaky Gut”. Our immune system and liver work hard to control this invasion. However, if the ‘gate’ is not closed, these unwanted ‘visitors’ will cause inflammation in our body and damage different kinds of cells. The body is now in dis-ease! It will express its condition by showing you symptoms like pains, redness or changes in the skin, unbalanced blood sugar level, tumors, foggy brain, fatigue etc.
To help the body using its clever system to heal itself, we must attend to the cause of this situation and close the ‘gate’. In other words, we must heal the gut! What ever your health issues may be, this will be the starting point of your personal program. Once the digestive track improves it will be able to absorb those life saving nutrients and keep the bad guys out. Your body cells will flourish again and so will you.
