Gut Health


Hello Everyone in Natural Health Nation,

     I hope that everyone survived all the holidays and didn’t eat too badly. That is a problem in our society, all these holidays and excuses to eat stuff we shouldn’t. It’s OK if that’s it but we easily fall into the trap of continuing to eat badly and then pretty soon, we’re sick or “catch” a cold. Many times cold and flu symptoms are the body detoxing and cleaning itself. As we enter the New Year, it’s a great time to consider your health status and to improve it, especially after all the virus stuff going on last year. It’s why I’ve been using the phrase – “Don’t Worry, Be Healthy”.

     The article that I’ve included this week talks about Gut health and why it’s so important, even with brain function and immune system function. One of the big failures of mainstream medicine is that there is no coordination of body functions, just a different doctor for different specialties. The human body is a functioning whole, not just parts to fix or control. At Natural Health, we strive to get the body healthy, not just controlled with medication. A good example is blood pressure. You can use meds to control it but isn’t it wiser to find out the cause of the problem? Same way with gut issues, using drugs to mask symptoms does not find the cause and restore health. If you’re eating 3 meals a day and causing inflammation with each, how will you ever get healthy? We find this problem, or Leaky Gut, on many of the new patients we get, along with the accompanying food allergies. True Health is the goal, not just pain relief.

     Well, here is wishing you a great New Year and please let us know if we can help you or yours toward a healthier one. Also spread the word to friends and neighbors that we can help them be healthier too.
