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.
Ways You Can Eliminate A Cloudy Brain
Can you eliminate that cloudy brain feeling? It can be so frustrating for many who don't know what to do when youre feeling like your brain is cloudy.
Brain fog is quite common and if you have listened to any of the previous 4 podcasts, you can see why the environment causes our brain to function inefficiently and ultimately give us that lack of clarity. There are solutions, and these 8 suggestions as to how to eliminate the brain fog symptoms.
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.
Stomach Inflammation And Anxiety
Why is nutrition the key to fight depression? A strong correlation between nutrition and stress shows there are surprising effects of foods on nutrition.
One of the most underutilized way to address anxiety and depression is through nutrition and how we absorb that nutrition from the foods we eat. The key being nutritious and healthy foods. But what most people don't realize is that the lack of nutrition from foods can cause inflammation in the body, and this inflammation is one of the biggest culprits of depression and anxiety.
Raw Vegetables Digestion Problems
Do vegetables help digestion. If someone has issues, the question most want answered is which vegetables do you eat for digestion, raw or cooked?
As mentioned in a previous post, water found in many foods benefit our body not only in keeping us hydrated, but by also helping us with our bowel movements. When our body breaks it down, fresh fruits and vegetables that have a significant water content are perfect foods for our digestive system to utilize for energy. On top of that, they are often the ones that have the most nutritional content and can hydrate our bodies the most.
Whole Foods Hydration
Being hydrated all the time could be simply choosing the right types of foods to eat. Water eliminates toxins and there are foods that contain water.
If you were to look at our body from a physiological standpoint, our colon needs a significant amount of hydration to simply move our bowel movements through our digestive system. If you were to read six different articles, you'd probably read about 4 different amounts based on body type, body weight, and activity levels. Knowing that, we then tend to get bogged down in knowing how much hydration the body needs in order to make that happen.
Society's Health Is At A Tipping Point
Do you have any idea how real is your food? Looking at how we provide our body with good nutrition, we should always ask how foods can impact us positively.
It seems that the health of our society is at a tipping point. The amount of people eating actual real food made with real ingredients seems to be reducing year to year. When you couple that with how the body treats these fake foods as toxins, it become evident that many are doing more harm than good when it comes to nutrition and eating so-called natural foods.
Can Digestive Illness Be Controlled?
How is possible to keep our digestive system healthy? In fact, what exactly does digestive health mean exactly? Is it complicated or easily addressed?
It's really important to know how important your digestive health really is. It's essentially the core and the foundation as to where everyone should look if they are wanting to start their own health journey or cure an illness. This begins by making sure you handle it effectively when you feel any problems beginning and by trying to optimize it daily.
Are We Feeding Ourselves Sickness?
What's the issue with GMO food nutrition? More and more foods are deemed unhealthy. Can we say that processed foods are an experiment that has failed?
It's my believe that eating altered or GMO foods can actually be starving our bodies and be moving forward towards making us sicker society. This movement towards producing a perfect food is actually the tip of the iceberg with the majority of information being unknown and below the surface when we're trying to understand how the altering and tampering of foods might be useful to our bodies.
No One Values Food Anymore
Should we be asking the question are healthy foods really healthy? Society is sick and a reason is knowing why are food allergies more common now.
How has society moved away from actually valuing foods for what they can actually do and are meant to do, nourish our body and our brain. It seems the trend has been heading to making food our enemy, so to speak. Foods sitting on the shelf are no longer nurturing and healing.
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.
