In addition to breaking down all the food you eat, extracting the nutrients, and processing most of the remaining waste, your gut is also responsible for 60 to 70% of your entire immune system! Your gut is an amazing organ and most people treat theirs very shabby indeed.
Spoiled food, over-processed food, too much sugar, caffeine, and alcohol, chemicals in the air and water—these are just some of the things that we often make the gut digest. It’s no wonder that your gut rebels with symptoms like stomach lining problems, intestinal allergies and spasms, cramping, diarrhea—all the way up to the big “C”, cancer.
In this podcast, Kira and Bill Van Ittersum share their findings on gut health; what you do that makes it sick and what you can do to make it well again.
