You Are What You Eat!!

Your body has an amazing ability to extract what it needs from the food you eat by properly digesting it.  Digestion at the very basic level is when you put food or liquid into your mouth, swallow it, your body breaks these molecules down into a size it can absorb and what your body doesn’t use is excreted as waste. However, digestion is actually a complex combination of biological and chemical reactions taking place at every stop along the extensive digestive tract, which is generally split into two halves: the upper gastrointestinal tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach, and duodenum) and the lower gastrointestinal track (small intestine and large intestine).

Your GI tract is also the largest part of your body’s immune system making up over 70%, protecting you against foreign invaders by producing acids and housing colonies of beneficial bacteria that act as a defensive army fighting to protect you from pathogens that find their way inside your body.  When your body consumes processed foods, you may be triggering the release of powerful antibodies meant to fight off foreign invaders, which can actually cause collateral damage to your body’s cells. In fact, eating a diet rich in processed foods and junk foods can cause an ongoing mistaken internal attack on very necessary components of your digestive system.

First major problem with digestion starts with what you choose to put in your mouth!  Inexpensive processed foods, often loaded with sweeteners, artificial colors, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, cheaply processed unhealthy fats, and artificial colors, are designed to be appealing to all of your senses, including your taste buds. Processed foods can lead to a whole host of health troubles, and many people today are getting a majority of their calories from these highly processed, low nutritional value foods.  Solution: choose Real food made with Real ingredients.

Dangers of Anti-Ulcer Drugs: Digestive aids, known as a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors, and H2 blockers (Pepsid AC, Prilosec, Zantac, etc) will actually take you in the opposite direction of optimal health because they shut down acid production, making your problem worse. If you currently take these you are reducing stomach acid even further, the opposite direction that your body actually needs to move. You are worsening your already malfunctioning digestive system. You are also compromising your absorption of the vitamin B-12.
