Diet and Digestion
Diet and Digestion are the keys to good health. Why?
Proper diet and digestion:
- Decreases inflammation
- Improves immunity
- Decreases toxic load
- Increases nutrient absorption
The opposite is also true:
With poor diet and digestion comes increased inflammation, poor immunity, an increase in
toxins, and a depletion of nutrients. Hence, you are swimming against the current when trying to
cure illness without addressing diet and digestion.
A few facts
- Over 80% of the body's entire immune system resides in the gut
- Digestion can take up to 30% of your daily energy intake
- As a fetus, the neural crest breaks in two with 2/3 becoming the brain and spinal chord, the other 1/3 becoming the nerves of digestion (a separate, independent brain). 90% of the Serotonin that you produce daily is made in your gut
Here again you can see the importance of food.
