Here's Why Digestive Toxicity Is Harming You
Have you ever thought how digestive toxicity is getting you in trouble? There are many warning signs of digestive toxicity you should know.
When discussion toxicity, especially when it comes to your gut and digestion, the first logical step is to look at how most view toxins, and how those toxins eventually work into areas where they can do the most damage. These areas are in places where you might think they can be toxic, but do a significant amount of damage under the radar.
The One Thing You Must Address To Have A Healthy Mindset With Food
How does each of us get a healthy mindset with food? There are so many advantages of having a healthy relationship with food. It is vital to our health.
As we all go through life, most of us (I would hope) want to be on a healthy journey. We should want to find ways to improve our health and live a meaningful long term life. As we navigate this journey, many of our best decisions will come from having a mindset of making them after listening to our gut and not necessarily with our head's logic. Making good (and “thoughtful”) choices to our health is understanding our gut and digestion control our success much more than our head.
Proof That Gut Health And Brain Health Are Connected
Why do most fail at fixing their gut health? The reason is because there are little know ways your gut health and brain are connected that must be addressed.
It's important to note we are on the verge of a new frontier of addressing our health, that new frontier being through our gut.
If I had my way (or money), I would spend my time dedicated to learning how our gut health is connected to all of the diseases of our immune system or how poor gut health can contribute to a break down of our autoimmunity in general.
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.
The Gut And Brain Connection Is Strong
How does the gut bacteria in our body affects the brain and body? One always affects the other; it's interesting how the gut and brain are connected.
If you've been reading this series on inflammation, you'd know how gut health, foods, and brain health are the triumverate of being healthy and happy. So how does out diet (or lack of good digestion) actually contribute to the illness of our brain?
Being Inflamed Is Good For Our Body
It's important to know why inflammation can be good for you. Normally, to reduce our bodily stress, most ask what can I take for inflammation in my body?
Chronic inflammation physiologically does significant damage to our brain when not kept in check. But there is a fine line between allowing the body to reduce inflammation naturally, and then not being able to reduce it at all so that it remains in a chronic state of constantly trying to fight the issues that have been created. So it's important to address inflammation.
How To Remove Toxins That Affect Our Brain
What happens when toxins are around us? Are we completely bombarded by the toxicity of our environment and is brain fog and toxins are the biggest threat.
The relationship between our environment and brain fog plays a much bigger role than most people realize. Taking a step back and looking around at what we eat, drink, breathe in, ingest, put on our skin, or touch, most everything we come in contact with has some sort of possible negative effect on our body?
Is Brain Fog Caused By Digestion?
Can brain fog be reversed? The causes of brain fog can be numerous, but most of them ultimately come back to knowing why poor digestion leads to brain fog?
What's the origin of the term “brain fog” and what exactly does it mean? If you have ever had those bouts of feeling like you lacked mental clarity, couldn't focus your attention on a task at hand, lacking concentration, or simply a general sense of just not feeling completely dialed into your life, you could probably be classified as having a case of “Brain fog”.
The Delicate Balance Of Thinking And Probiotics
What exactly is healthy thinking? Is it simply thinking healthy or is it understanding how to walk the fine line of good gut health and good thoughts?
Before we answer that, we should look at how probiotics serve as the foundation from which your brain grows efficiently and how that good bacteria can serve as a protector for your brain as well. Once you understand the relationship between your brain (mental health) and your gut microbiome, you can see how important they are to the other.
Gut Microbiota And Cortisol
Can an imbalanced digestive system increase cortisol levels to become chronic inflammation? What are the effects gut microbiota has on cortisol levels?
If you are wanting to be in the most optimal health, you must know the importance of giving your gut microbiota the tools it needs to combat the constant cortisol production in our bodies that the standard American diet and lifestyle produces. Ultimately, it needs to have the tools to reduce chronic inflammation.
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.
