This is a big subject! It will take more than one post to cover this subject, but I want to get you pondering this:
"All disease begins in the gut."
ALL disease begins in the gut.
High blood pressure?
Weight gain/weight loss?
Allergies? (Hay fever, seasonal, whatever)
Poor thyroid function?
Consistent sore throats, flus, colds?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Congestive Heart Failure?
…..and the list goes oooooonnnnn!!!
YES, YES, YES, YES, and if I wanted to be cheesy I’d say 1,000 times yes. 🙂 ALL disease begins in the gut.
God made our bodies SO incredibly perfect that we could be disease free. We really could. Our bodies have the natural ability to fight off *many* things. Yes, even cancer. (If our gut is in perfect condition we will *never* have cancer). 80 to 85% of our body’s immune system (the disease fighter that God designed for us) lies in our GUT. You heard me right–in our gut….
Most of modern medicine denies a connection between what we eat and how we feel or what diseases we end up with.
I’ll post more on this topic. There is much more to say. Just think about it….What we eat matters. What we eat should be real food. What we eat should nourish us.
