Why Holistic Health Is Much More Than Preventing Illness
Today I'm going to start a new series about holistic health and how that "whole health" starts in your belly and then radiates out from there.
Health is often understood as the absence of disease or sickness. Now, while this definition is valid, it actually lacks the comprehensiveness of the broader approach. Start assessing your holistic health and wellness on a wider spectrum.
Did you know the health of your gut determines your sickness? Whether you have a strong immune system or poor digestion your gut health determines how sick you'll be.
In this episode of The Mental Minute, I share why having a healthy gut doesn't automatically mean you won't be sick. The way most interpret the articles found on the internet today, a healthy gut means you won't be sick, but I explain why that's not the case.
Note: Thanks for taking a few minutes to listen to my podcast. Hopefully, you've realized that regardless of how much you focus on gut health, sickness might inevitably come. Do me a huge favor and click the like button below or share this on twitter. Or better yet, it would mean the world if you took a screenshot and shared it on your social media stories. When you do, here's a checklist I personally use when looking at those supplements that support our immune system.
It seems there is no more of a toxic word in American lexicon than that of the word, "Vaccinations". It's important to note this post is not taking a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine stance. It's simply to look at it from a non-linear perspective and completely from a digestive standpoint.⠀
So let's first ask the question, "What is a vaccine?" A vaccine is when you inject a bacterial or virus in your body so that your body responds by creating the proper antibodies in your immune system. The thought is that by creating the antibodies in response to the vaccine, the body would be better able to "defend" itself form the virus. That's the idea of how a vaccine should and would work in "normal" situations. ⠀
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.
