Heal the Belly, Feel Good !

Naturopathic and Functional Medicine doctors say that up to 90% of our health depends upon our digestive system. Our immune system and resistance to disease is deeply interwoven with our intestines.
I’d like to share with you some basic steps in healing the digestive tract, which provides relief for the whole body. This approach has been known to alleviate such things as:

Skin disorders, acne, eczema, psoriasis
A weak immune system (susceptibility to viruses, etc.)
Autoimmune diseases like Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis
Bloating, gas, stomach cramping, loose stools, IBS, constipation
Joint pains
Chronic fatigue
Many “diseases of age,” such as osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, depression

Steps to Heal the Belly:
It’s okay to pick and choose the suggestions that resonate with you.  Most people find better relief by using all these methods, adding a new step into their practice every week or two.

1. Hydration (Watercure) – drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day and eliminate at least 1 to 3 BMs per day

2. Organic produce; make veggies 50% of your intake; Alkalinize your diet by eating more plants; consider Food Combining

3. Strengthen the Intestines: resolve Candida overgrowth; take high-dose probiotics to restore your gut flora; heal intestinal membranes with diluted yucca juice for some months

4. Option to actively detoxify your body using a green juice fast, or
slowly detoxify on an alkaline diet of 80% plants

5. Find and resolve your subtle food allergies to stop the cycle of inflammation – –
(Gluten and dairy are common offenders.)

Be sure to smell your food (starts digestive juices), and chew till it’s soup in your mouth.
Get some enjoyable exercise each day, moving the lymph system to cleanse the body naturally.

Keep in mind, our digestion is also connected to our emotions.  How do I digest my world? My roles in life? My work? My family and friend relationships? My fun?
The more we can slow down to fully process and enjoy our days, the healthier we’ll be.
In a state of appreciation, we find everything nourishes us.
