Hippocrates said it and he was right:
“All disease begins in the gut ” 😮
Whatever symptoms, diseases or conditions your are experiencing, it either started or has to do with gut health.
From obvious things like digestive issues ( gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal discomfort), to bowel issues to vague unrelated things like allergies, joint pain, depression, auto-immune conditions, diabetes and much more.
Why is that ?!
Well the gut is the only open connection between the outside world and your body, and communication occurs through food.😎
Fun fact: the gut has almost 80% of the body’s immunity!!
The health of your gut dictates the health (and nutrition) of the whole body.
Indeed, many scientists call the gut ” the second brain”, lol 🤣
The first step to improve your health is to improve your gut health 😍
Here are my top 5 steps to start :
1) Reduce sugar!
It feeds bad bacteria in the gut, causes gas and bloating and is the cause of weight gain.🤩
2) Avoid poor food combinations.
For example, eating proteins and sugar/fruit at the same time is not good for digestion. Eat fruit alone as a snack 😉
3) Give your gut time to rest and digest.
You really don’t need to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks to stay alive!
Your body is designed to tolerate long periods without food 😀
Make sure to add vegetables, proteins and healthy fats to every meal <3
4) Aid your digestion with lemon water before meals:
Drink a cup of water before meals with 1/2 a lemon squeezed (don’t worry this is NOT lemonade and NO you don’t need sugar 🙂 ) it tastes good.😋
5) Add soluble fibers to your day to improve elimination
( yes, I am talking about poop )
Add 1-2 tbsp ground flax seed to your daily meals and have 1-2 glasses of water with it for better bowel movements
