Lifestyle as Medicine: A New Approach to an Ancient Healing System

If your body is acidic due to poor digestion caused by a diet of too much refined flours, processed foods, sugar (including honey and agave), dairy and meat, combined with stress, your immune system can eventually break down and your digestive tract can become imbalanced and inflamed.

Live Longer and Happier by Healing Your Digestive System

The body’s digestive system has two main functions: to bring nutrients in and toxins out. When we digest food and liquids, the nutrients in the food and liquids is absorbed into the blood stream to be utilized by the cells in the body for fuel.

Live Longer and Happier by Healing Your Imbalanced Digestive System

Scientists today are calling our digestive system the “second brain.” This digestive brain is very sophisticated and is intimately related to our immune system. When we are under stress, or when we eat the wrong type of foods, our immune system is therefore also compromised. This ecological crisis in our digestive system is one of the main leading causes of auto-immune diseases such as thyroid imbalances, lupus, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and more.
