Healthy Digestion

When the digestive system is stressed, conditions such as abdominal pain, increased gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, and ulcers may occur. Long standing digestive problems can lead to nutritional deficiencies causing fatigue and a compromised immune system. The saying “you are what you eat”, has some truth worth noting here. We can learn to take a proactive approach and build a diet based on wholesome foods.

These choices can promote the healing of our digestive system and prevent many common ailments before they start. Our western diet consists of a fair amount of overly processed foods that are more difficult to digest. So, how to reset your gut?

Choosing organic foods is my number one recommendation. I realize that this may not always be feasible, and if so, the digestive tract may still need help processing foods. To support your digestive tract it is recommended using digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are catalysts which break down foods into absorbable nutrients and play a vital role in escorting them to cells and tissue for utilization.

After consuming a meal about 50% of our body’s energy is used for digestion. This is why you feel fatigued after over indulging. Taking 1 Digest capsule with each meal will help facilitate the complete digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. This also helps the body free up energy for systems other than the digestive process.

A healthy digestive system executes two key functions. It breaks food down and expels waste. Maintaining healthy bowels is an essential part of a fit digestive system. It is recommended taking three Probiotic capsules per week to help stabilize and build a healthy intestinal environment. Many patients return to vitality by focusing on good nutritional habits and making the effort to rebuild digestive health.
