Repair and clear your gut for good healing.

One of the most important priorities in delaing with people’s health or lack of health is to make sure they have good gut function.

Why is this so important?

Because, your gut has many many fucntions including 80% of your immune system lies right in the gut.  If you have poor gut health then you aren’t going to be healthy and you can have many other dysfunctions of the body becasue of poor gut health.

Digestion starts in your mouth and ends with a bowel movement.  It’s incredible the number of physiological processses that go on.  You have to produce enough hydrochloric acid in your stomach to breakdown your food.  Digestive enzymes must be released to break food down in the intestines, gall bladder and liver is activated during digestion, and a huge host of other activities that we do not have conscious control over but work their magic.

What can get in the way of good digestion is the food we eat.  It can either work for us in a positive way or against us.  Unfortunatly the standard American diet will totally work against your body and totally destroy your gut lining and can lead to many health conditions.  When you lose the integrity of your gut lining your food proteins aren’t digested and go into the blood stream not getting digested and your immune system sets up an attack since this is foreign and can cause a host of problems over time from allergies, to auto-immune condtions, to just plain old poor gut and bowel function.  I guess you could call this a leaky gut condtion.  When you have a leaky gut it must get healed.  I do specific strategies to heal your gut and get you back on the road to better health and well being. It’s imperative that you change you diet, manage your stress, and get some movement in your life.  One of the tests I do to assess gut and bowel activity is a stool microbial test.  It measures how much good bacteria you have in the gut and also measures bad gut bacteria, yeast and parasites which also can cause havoc and wreck your gut and lead to a chronic inflammatory state.  It’s not uncommon to find bad gut bacteria and parasitic infections on the blood work and then on the stool microbial tests.  This must be hadled and I do a prtotocol to fix this.

When you have a leaky gut you probably have a leaky brain which can lead to brain fog, fatigue, and just not feeling good.

Be very conscious about what you put in your mouth.  Stay away from anythnig that is boxed, canned, or processed.  Those along with grains and dairy are offending foods that will more than likely just add fuel to the fire.

The one thing you must never have is high fructose corn syrup.  This is poison!  It will kill your gut, spike your blood sugar, and make you fat and stupid.  Just say no to all sugary and diet pops.

Winter high school sports are well on their way.  Good luck to all the kids who are in extracurricular activites.  it keeps them in the game of life.

It’s been kind of fun checking out different colleges with my son Riley.  He hopes to play a little football also.

It’s great to have Connor back from Montana State for the holidays.  He’s a whiz with the computers which helps me out a ton.

Ok, Christmas is right around the corner.  Don’t stress to much, enjoy it and have fun with your families!!’

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TB5-Y08qbjo] I couldn't have said it much better. There are many more things to fear than the swine flu.  How about our behaviors on how we eat, move, and think? Those are what either create disease and pathology over time or create health, abundance, and a
