How Happy Is Your Gut?

August 16, 2017

Did you know that your brain and your colon have some of the same tissue? And that the colon also makes neuropeptides and neurotransmitters like serotonin, that effect mood and overall wellness.
We comment about the brain/colon connection when we say things like ‘gut feeling’ or “I knew in my gut’. But perhaps we didn’t realize the depth of how emotion is created in the gut.
In order for the brain in the belly to work optimally, it needs the healthy bacterial soldiers cleaning and purifying it. Many, many people suffer from not enough healthy bacteria in their colon, although unaware of the extent of the infliction.
There are thousands of possible physical issues that can and do arise when the colon is not supported with a very high fiber diet. As author and health expert, Dr. Bernard Jensen, would say, death begins in the colon.
But no worries, it’s not hard to keep your colon functioning optimally once you are aware of the absolute need to do so.
Ingesting the proper bacterial superheroes is all you have to do, and they will do the rest.
Fresh raw fermented vegetables or a nice fermented raw kvass (cultured fruit or vegetable beverage) is the best way to go.
Kombucha is good, if you can be sure that it’s truly raw and hasn’t been heated for production purposes.
Freshly made cashew or coconut yogurt, made with a culture you can find in your health food store.
I’m not a big fan of pasteurized dairy yogurts. I don’t think they offer the full nutrient power that the other options offer.
Here is a video teaching you how to make your own fermented vegetables. There are endless combinations of vegetables and herbs you can use. Find the taste you like best and make them a staple in your diet.
THIS IS A HEALTH GAME CHANGER.
You’ll  see bloating, gas, constipation, acne, lethargy,  even depression, and so many other discomforts disappear. Taking care of your colon in this way takes care of your entire body, correcting many imbalances. The gut will be happy, and when the gut is happy, every body is happy.
