We live in a toxic environment. Heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals and EMFs bombard our lives on a daily basis. We are all doing our best to protect our families from these dangers, but in reality, there are some things we simply can’t control.

What we can control is how we treat our bodies – and the fuel we put into them. In the end, this has more power over our health than almost any toxin or influence in our environment.

Start With Your Gut!

Fact: Roughly 70% of our immune cells are housed in the digestive system. This means that a strong digestive system = strong immune system.

Fact: There are more bacteria in your digestive system than there are cells in your body.

Fact: The bacteria in your gut weighs around 4 lbs.

Fact: Roughly 85% of your serotonin (the “feel good” or “happy” hormone) is stored in your gut. Happy gut = happy YOU!

Almost all cultures include fermented foods in their diet. Fermented foods provide probiotics (beneficial bacteria), vitamins and enzymes that help keep your digestive system healthy and free of illness and disease. Overuse of antibiotics, antibacterials and a lack of raw food in the diet literally strips your digestive system of these vital microorganisms and nutrients. Eating fermented food helps to replenish the good bacteria.

Fact: Having a healthy balance of good and bad bacteria is crucial – it’s all about creating balance.

Our body is built to heal itself, we just need to know how to listen and honor it’s signals!
