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.
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.
Gut Biology And Health
What is the science behind how the gut works? How it functions & its importance is fascinating & necessary in understanding what can we learn from the gut.
There are so many interesting things about how our gut microbiome works in our bodies, from helping us to digest foods, to strengthening our immune system, to helping us regulate our mood and hormones. But how does it all work in tandem?
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.
Probiotic Cell Biology
Why are probiotics good for you and what does probiotics do to your body? When you know how many probiotics in your body, you'll realize their benefits.
Today I'm going to start a series really getting back to basics, and that's explaining probiotics in a way maybe that you might not have heard before. Now, the typical human brain weighs about three pounds and a healthy human body will have over three and a half pounds of probiotic good bacteria and organisms. This and the fact that our heart weighs about three quarters of a pound or so, and our liver weighs about four pounds, makes our probiotic bacteria one of the largest organs in our bodies.
Improve Your Standard Of Healthy Living
Where do you begin a journey to better health? If you know now is the time to start your path to health, how do you start a health and fitness journey?
Once that decision has been made, a more in-depth question should be what part of your health should you focus upon in order to achieve better health? I believe a starting point for everyone to actually begin that journey with a priority focusing on your gut health. The first step is actually to start taking a note of how you feel, not only immediately after eating but also the next day and the next day. Because foods play a predominate role in those feelings, whether you know it or not.
3 Ways To Include Spiritual Health Into Your Day
Everyone is looking for spirituality and a sense of purpose, no matter how they classify it. When it comes to our health, a large component of that is the importance of spiritual health and wellbeing.
I believe one of the strongest pillars (and most important from a mental standpoint) is the third of four pillars of holistic health, and that's being spiritually strong.
Now, the spiritual pillar, it's such a personal piece of overall wellness, and everybody tends to define it differently. I look at spirituality as a sense of purpose or direction or meaning, without which values can slip by the wayside. This is done through meditation, prayer, or other activities that foster a connection in nature or to a higher power, and not necessarily about a specific religion or belief system.
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.
