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.
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.
Whole Foods Eliminate Waste By Reducing Stress
Do the added ingredients in foods affect your bowel movements? It's why we should look into eating whole foods for eliminate waste products in our body.
If you eat a significant amount of processed foods and have been consuming them for any length of time, you might be surprised to find out that many of those foods and the ingredients found in them have not been kind to your digestive system. In fact, they might be slowly deteriorating your body's ability to eliminate waste and toxins from your intestines.
Body System Eliminate Waste
Do you understand the importance of eliminating body waste? Eliminating waste from the body is the key to reducing toxicity and chronic inflammation.
I think it's time to begin a healthy discussion about how we all should be looking to actually remove food waste from our system. To have a meaningful discussion about that, rather than look at what the process of eliminating bowel movements is, we should look at how healthy gut flora can heal your digestive system and help your body naturally eliminate the wastes that have been accumulated.
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 Produce Be Toxic?
How do you choose the right produce at the grocery store? Looking at whether to buy organic or conventional, you should ask if organic produce is healthy.
What exactly is your view of organic and natural foods? For most people, it's completely backwards and over the years, the mindset has changed as to what most believe is truly healthy. When it comes to foods, there is a bit of irony in that the foods not covered in pesticides and are actually grown the way nature intended are the foods labeled differently and separated and not the other way around.
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.
What Are Antioxidants And Why Are They Good For You?
What foods are high in antioxidants? Knowing the most nutritious ones to eat is crucial for health and understanding why antioxidants are good for you.
It's important to know what antioxidants are, and I'll provide you with a different perspective as to where and how you can get those antioxidants to inevitably protect yourself against those free radicals that we discussed in the previous podcast episode.
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.
