Why Our Body Is All Connected
Understanding how our body works in tandem is important if we like to live holistically. We aren't a collection or sum of body our parts acting separately.
It's important to begin looking at the state of our gut health as a cumulative effect of our body's health. Our body is a complete system: everything is connected. We are not simply a head that has been placed randomly and acts separately from the spinal cord upon which it sits. Our body relies upon these two components working in tandem to move our limbs that branch off from that spine to walk, move, talk, and complete any other functional movement.
Thinking Differently About Health
Here's why the future of health lies in our gut. It controls how much energy we get from foods. So, if you want to be healthy, start looking in your gut.
I believe the gut microbiome will be in the forefront of what it will mean for us to be holistically healthy. The first step is asking yourself at what stage in your life are you in trying to be at your most optimal health? Are you eating healthy? Are you exercising? Taking supplements? While all of those are useful and are beneficial, all of these things couldn't be accomplished without a living gut that serves as the foundation to be healthy.

Nutrition, Gut Health, And Athletic Performance
Is there a best way to use nutrition to improve athletic performance? Getting the most from foods eaten is important to athletes and their gut health.
Most athletes rarely give consideration to their guts, but they should. Why? It is from within their guts and digestion that athletic performance can be improved. This improvement can be large or small, but it can be the difference between crashing and burning or powering through towards the finish line. But there's so much more to it than eating.
Combinations Of Gut Microbiome
Do we all have the same gut dna? If we are to healthy as an individual, we should know how much does our gut biome differ from others and why it matters.
Just like your DNA, the population and make up of your gut bacteria is unique from everyone else. It's as unique as your fingerprint. There have been estimates of the amount bacteria found in your gut ranges from a trillion to tens of trillions in various combinations in any of the thousands of species that scientists currently know about. In a typical “healthy” gut microbiome, a body should have at least 85% good bacteria with the remaining bad bacteria.

Everyone at some point in their lives will experience a bout of sadness or possible anxiety. It was during my first experiences with it that I learned some tools that helped me to overcome what was causing my depression and anxiety, these tools being a bit of mindfulness and spiritual meditation. I realize that words like meditation and mindfulness are trending, but there is more and more research out there that cognitive therapies based on mindfulness are showing promising results.
Can Food Combinations Make You Sick?
Does food combining matter? Knowing the foods you eat at one time can affect the digestion of the other foods as well. Is there simple food combining?
The complete digestive process uses many specific kinds of enzymes that digestive specific kinds of foods and specific kinds of meals. Some enzymes thrive and work best in an acidic environment and some work best in an alkaline one.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
