What does your gut tell you?

(NaturalNews) Have you ever heard the expression, "my gut tells me...?" Many people use some form of that expression to refer to how they feel about something or the impression they get. However, in a more literal sense, what does your gut tell YOU? If you pay attention close enough to it, you'll know what it's telling you. Now it's also been said, "You are what you eat." This is true for the most part, because what you eat goes into your body's intestinal tract and all health issues begin and end there. What you eat will either contribute to good gut health or bad gut health.

Your body's digestive system breaks down the food you eat and absorbs that food's nutrients into the bloodstream. Many have poor intestinal/colon health due to nutritional deficiency (i.e. what isn't there that should be) and toxicity (i.e. what is in there that should not be).

The warning signs

Some symptoms of a toxic digestive system are bloating, constipation, diarrhea, gas (flatulence), bad breath, heartburn, hiccups, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), nausea, stomach cramps, leaky gut syndrome, various skin problems, weight problems, gallstones, liver failure, food allergies, headaches, sinus issues, body odor, fibromyalgia, hemorrhoids, lack of energy, brain fog/lack of mental clarity, cancer, inflammation and more. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your digestive system could be impaired. You don't need to worry but you do need to be proactive, starting now.

Steps to making and keeping a healthy digestive system

  • A) Address the toxicity problem by frequently detoxifying and cleansing your digestive system through a quality fiber- or oxygen-based intestinal cleanser, by doing a raw (unpasteurized) juice cleanse, drinking plenty of purified water and replenishing your good intestinal flora (bacteria) by consuming quality prebiotics and probiotics.
  • B) Address the deficiency problem by adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle in which a healthy diet plays an important part. The ideal diet, which the Creator originally intended for mankind in Genesis 1:29 (in the Holy Bible), and which man will never improve upon is a plant-based diet (i.e. no animal products), where we are avoiding all white (processed, unnatural) sugar, table salt and all GMOs (i.e. wheat, soy, corn and sugar beets), going organic where possible. If you won't give up animal flesh totally, many find it healthier to severely limit consumption. Remember, animal-sourced foods as well as GMO foods are known to contribute to poor digestive health. Why? Because mankind wasn't originally created with bodies fit to consume such "food."
  • C) Get more exercise, as this also helps the body expel toxins.

Here's Richard personal testimony. He traded the Standard American Diet for a mostly raw, plant-based diet and saw his digestive health problems disappear. He said, "Since starting the diet a little over a month ago, I have lost 25 pounds. Psoriasis in my ear and nasal congestion have improved. Hemorrhoids are gone. Swelling in ankles, fuzzy vision, and poor mental clarity are gone. Complexion noticeably improved, and I have quit all prescription drugs.... My blood pressure is now normal and my lifelong battle with indigestion, reflux, and heartburn is gone."

This is not rocket science. On one hand, a bad diet and lifestyle will contribute to bad digestive health often leading to various other illnesses that could be costly and/or fatal. On the other hand, a proper diet and lifestyle will contribute to good digestive health. So before you go to a restaurant or shop at a store, ask yourself: to eat or not to eat? Now that is the question.
