Does your digestive system need a tune-up . . . or an over-haul?

Does your digestive system need a tune-up . . . or an over-haul?

Do you suffer from heartburn, acid reflux, or GERD?

Do you have gas, bloating, or indigestion after eating?

Do you experience diarrhea, IBS, constipation or a combination?

These conditions are almost always related to your diet and nutrition. You can get your digestive system back on track with the right foods and without any medications.

Every cell that makes up every tissue that makes up every organ depends on the body’s digestive system to provide the nutrients the body needs to keep functioning properly.

When your digestive system is off-kilter, you aren’t getting the nutrients you need from the food you eat. Contrary to public belief, the majority of Americans produce too little stomach acid not too much. This leads to undigested food backing up in your system and causing symptoms such as bloating, gas, GERD, and acid reflux. These and other digestive symptoms are also associated with hidden food allergies which can trigger inflammation, cause IBS and leaky gut  (a weaken the intestinal lining) and eventually initiate an autoimmune response.

Digestion and Your Immunity

Digestive health and the immune system are indistinguishably linked. Without adequate stomach acid, our first line of defense against harmful bacteria and infections is gone. Realizing that 70% of  immune function resides in the digestive system, maintaining a balanced digestive system is crucial to your well-being. Age, diet, environment and use of antibiotics effects the composition of your intestinal bacteria. While most of our attention is given to the “bad” bacteria, humans share a necessary symbiotic relationship with microorganisms in the intestines. These “good” bacteria – which outnumber human cells ten to one –  help the body break down and absorb nutrients. They also promote immune function and overall health. When the digestive microflora is out of balance, it can lead to a cascade of health dysfunction, disease, and degenerative conditions.
