Your Gut is no Las Vegas. What happens in the gut does not stay in the gut.

Gut Health

Did you know that min 60-70% of your immune system is in your gut?  Some doctors even say 90%.  Regardless of what % they use, the point is…your Gut Health Matters! It matters A LOT!!

In fact, it is the microbiome inside our gut that is the important part, these microscopic bacteria and other organisms are the building blocks of our immune system and are connected to everything about us.  Yes BUGS control us, well sort of :), they are extremely important.  The naturopathic community has been saying this for years, but the medical community is starting to understand as well. 

Our gut health, and the health of these little friends of ours, are connected to the health of our brain, hormones, your mental health and our physical health.  There is a reason that there is the saying “trust your gut”. As science catches up with what people have known for years we will find out more about how important they are and how intertwined we really go.  

I called them “our little friends”,  it is time that we start to treat them like friends, like FRIENDS.  How do you treat your friends? Do you squish them, step on them, crush them, yell at them, attack them?  Well, we all have our days, but I sure hope you treat them better than that.  In the personal development world, there is a saying.  “Would you talk to your friends the way you talk to yourself?”  The point is that we would never dream of talking to our friends the way we talk to ourselves.  You’re not good enough, you’re not pretty enough, you do not deserve that!  We would never talk to our friends that way.

Our little friends are kind of like that.  If they were our big friends, we would protect and honour them, we would do what we could to make hem happy and healthy. These little friends give to us so many ways, it is time that we protect and care for them as well.

How do we do that?

The first step, of course, is being aware that they are important and the second is to start thinking out how our actions affect them.

I created a 3 step approach to help people to learn about, protect and rebuild their gut health

Stop the Damage

If you walk into the bathroom and the water is overflowing from the toilet, do you run and get the mop or shop vacuum? Or do you turn off the water?? You stop more damage by turning off the darn water!

What are the things that are causing the damage in our gut? If we start cleaning up before we stop doing the things that are causing the damage, we will be fighting a losing battle.

Clean up our mess

As we age, we naturally lose digestive enzymes, taking a good quality digestive enzyme helps get the system working properly again.

My favourite digestive enzyme is Essentiazyme 4 I take it 20 minutes before lunch & dinner, it has made a huge difference in my health. Especially when eating out and on vacation. I try my best to order foods that will work for me but once I place the order, I lose control of the process. Enzymes help to level that playing field a little.

We cannot separate the physical body from the emotional body, they are all one and need to be treated as such. Sleep, Stress, Emotions, Exercise and what we at IIN call, Primary Foods, which are all those things that “feed” our bodies but are not food.

I also highly recommend that you start working on YOU. When we work on ourselves we start to understand why we do the self-sabotaging thing that we do to ourselves. Then the real healing will begin.
