As I mentioned, this week I want to talk about your gut health. Many (if not most of us) have a leaky gut. It is just a matter of how leaky your gut has become. The term “leaky gut” generates all kinds of visuals? You might be imagining a hole in your stomach pouring chunks of food into your abdomen. What is actually happening is not too far off from that thought.
Our digestive system begins at the mouth and ends at the anus. Food and drink go in the mouth, process through the digestive system and the unused product is expelled.
And this entire system provides you with nutritional elements necessary for you to live. Of course, that assumes you are eating quality food, but that’s a different story.
Nutritional elements are distributed to your blood stream via the small intestine. This process falters when the lining of the small intestine is damaged. The pathways can get jammed open, or even jammed shut. In either case, you now have a condition referred to as leaky gut. This leads to a number of different symptoms and complications which can add up to health problems.
This is the sneaky condition that wears many disguises. To learn more about what leaky gut is watch this short video.
Then next week I will be sharing with you some of the conditions that can result from leaky gut and give you the 5 ways you can start to repair your leaky gut.
Supporting and repairing your gut health is a really big deal. So much so, that in the coming weeks I will be sharing more information about how to you can take steps to repairing your leaky gut. For now though, grab your free gifts for the holidays’ and watch this short video on leaky gut.
