OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEMS ARE THE CORE OF OUR IMMUNE SYSTEMS.
Do you struggle with your digestion?
Often, or even just sometimes?
It does seem that digestive issues have been on the rise in recent years. Many more food allergies are being reported. This is in reaction to the processed and genetically modified foods that so many people are eating these days. Food quality has changed with the increased amount of chemicals used to treat crops, resulting in poor soil quality that is damaged and unable to provide growing food with the proper nutrients.
Taking care of our digestive systems is one of the best ways that we can combat environmental challenges in our food and air. Not only does a healthy digestive system keep us physically healthier, it also keeps us emotionally and mentally alert and able to approach life with a positive attitude!
Good digestion not only affects our physical well-being, it also has a direct effect on our mental and emotional health as well.
- 70-80% of our immune system lies in our digestive system
- 500 different types of good bacteria live in our digestive system
- 95% of Serotonin is produced in our digestive systems
SOME SCIENCE-Y FACTS ABOUT OUR IMMUNE SYSTEMS.
It’s kind of interesting to imagine where the Immune System actually is located. Only 20% of it resides outside of the intestinal tract, leaving most of it is inside our digestive tract. Knowing this gives us a much clearer picture of where it does most of its work. It also includes our lymph nodes and vessels, appendix, spleen, tonsils, thymus, and bone marrow.
Did you know that most of your immune system is housed in a part of your body that has a separate nervous system from your brain? The digestive tract is the only part of our body that has this characteristic!
Try to picture your digestive system as a warm flame that processes everything that comes inside your body. In fact, this part of our body is located in what some refer to as our Solar Plexus, or 3rd Chakra in our body’s energy field. In order to keep the flame steady and burning at just the right temperature, we need to ‘feed the fire’. Just like you would tend a campfire by adding the right sizes and amounts of wood, the right amount of oxygen, and gather enough supplies to get through the night, that’s how we need to tend the flames of our digestive systems.
In the world of Superfoods, there is one delicious food that stands out, and can stand proudly along with our beloved Turmeric.
Ginger fuels digestion and even enhances the positive effects of Turmeric in your entire digestive system. Ginger brings a sweet warmth that keeps your digestion burning at the perfect temperature!
Ginger has long been used for medicinal purposes related to digestive issues such as digestive issues, nausea, loss of appetite, pain, and motion sickness. Phenolic compounds in ginger have been found to relieve inflammation overall and especially in the digestive tract. They also stimulate bile production, bringing help to a weak gall bladder, and stimulate digestive juices such as saliva.
Ginger works as a safe antacid. Many of the drugs used to treat reflux and heart burn cause an increase of bone weakness, cancer, and other illnesses. Ginger works better than traditional medicine and causes no side effects.
Of course, before adding something new to your diet for medicinal purposes, please check with your physician for possible counter-effects.
