Every week we hear some new information with the latest insight into our health. There is so much information out there is hard to sort through what is right for you!
Everyone wants to eat properly and do the right exercises, but it can still all get a bit overwhelming with the supplement fads and diet trends that seem to come and go with each season.
How can I really gain insight into my health in a world that couldn’t seem more diluted?
The truth is we can simplify the issue as much as possible by understanding that the barometer for our overall health begins and ends with our digestive system. Our health is literally happening within the digestive system’s ability to breakdown, absorb, assimilate, and eliminate everything we eat.
The problem for the vast majority of us is that beginning in our youth we develop bad habits, imbalances, and dysfunctions that can plague us for a lifetime.
To add insult to injury if you experience actual symptoms such as indigestion, heartburn, bloating, and constipation our medical system isn’t trained to identify the cause but rather connect you to whatever medication you need.
Take a little purple pill or a high potency laxative and the problem is “solved”. Not only are you not getting better but you’re likely masking a problem that will eventually lead to even greater challenges ahead.
In other words, folks, we’ve got to take control of our health.
