All disease begins in the gut.” – Hippocrates
Did you know that your body contains 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells? The inner world of bacteria in your body is known as “your microbiome.”
It may sound a little bit creepy, or like a weird science fiction book, but it is actually fact!
These trillions of microbes and their communities are the manufacturers and managers of how you feel, look, and think.
Every day researchers are learning more about just how much your microbiome regulates nearly every system of your body.
Most of your immune system is found in this intelligent bacterial ecosystem, and everything from the common cold and flu to acne and skin health, to cardiovascular disease and heart health, is impacted by the delicate balance of these intestinal microflora maintaining the proper ratios.
A healthy person’s digestive system will have about 80% good bacteria and 20% bad. If these numbers get out of whack even a little bit, and the balances tip to evil vs. good 🙂 then, sickness will inevitably follow.
It is just how God created the human body to function. Everything from the sniffles to cancer comes back to this ratio maintaining proper balance.
Common digestive disorders like acid reflux, heartburn, candida overgrowth, leaky gut, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, IBS, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, and MANY more immune system related disorders are now considered “normal” in our society today, but they can all be traced back to this one culprit, a digestive system where the bad guys are triumphing over the good!
But it doesn’t have to be this way. God made our bodies to function in amazing health when our digestive systems and bacterial systems are in the proper balance.
When I was so very sick at the age of 19, I had an ulcer and also a debilitating case of IBS, and likely would have developed a disease like Crohn’s disease, had I not changed my diet so drastically and so quickly.
Since digestive system troubles are so common, I wanted to share with you a book that truly changed my life when I was so very sick. It is pictured above, called Restoring Your Digestive Health, and written by Jordan Rubin and gastroenterologist Dr. Joseph Brasco.
I found it after starting the Maker’s Diet, and even though the Maker’s Diet helped me TREMENDOUSLY, Restoring Your Digestive Health helped me regain health in my digestive system in a focused, intense, and quick way. I would highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from literally any type of digestive problem.
The authors give a protocol for all sorts of digestive ailments, such as candida overgrowth, leaky gut, IBS, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn’s, UC, diverticulitis, and many more.
You can get the book on Amazon here.
I have known many with similar or worse digestive issues than I had, and this book has helped every single one of them that have implemented the protocol. It is not for the faint of heart, as it is very intense, but it is worth it. Even to this day, 14 years later, I go back to it whenever I feel that my digestion is slowing down or doing poorly. And it works every single time!
If you get this book, please be sure to keep in touch and let me know that you tried it! I know it will help you as much as it has helped me!
With all my love, and for your extraordinary health,
