Nutrition & Digestion
"You are what you eat" It’s a well know saying and yes there is a lot of truth to it. But you are also what you absorb, eliminate and think too.
Every part of our body is so interwoven you can’t exclude one part of the picture.
What is the point of eating all of the right foods, taking supplements and drinking your optimal amount of pure filtered water if:
You’re not producing enough stomach acid to breakdown foods.
If medications have diminished your healthy population of good digestive bacteria (the microbiome)
You’re stressed, lack confidence or are anxious (these emotions and more prevent your digestive system from working fully)
You’ve had operation that have caused scar tissue and tension on your digestive system.
I could continue….
Really this is just to illustrate that it is so much more than just the mechanical process of putting healthy food in your mouth, chewing it, swallowing and the rest all happens in the way that you imagined.
This is the reason why we have dedicated a whole section to digestion, food and nutrition. So that you can see a much broader picture. If you have tried other methods in the past and not had the desired result, we aim for you to discover new knowledge within this section. Avenues you may not have realised were relevant that you will be able to act on to create a healthier future.
