What You Eat and Drink Creates or Fights Disease

A healthy body begins with our food and drinks selections.

Everything we eat, drink and think creates chemicals in our bodies. These chemicals either support our health and longevity or they create conditions in which disease can grow and minimize our health and expedite the aging processes.  Our digestive system is the beginning of our daily interface with the nutrients we need to survive.

The purpose of the digestive system is to:

● Receive food
● Break down food into absorbable nutrients
● Move food through the digestive system
● Secrete acid, mucus, enzymes, bile, and pepsin
● Absorb nutrients
● Eliminate toxic waste and unabsorbed foods

Plan meals that are nutritionally balanced.

There are many things you can do to enhance the effectiveness of your digestive system. Some are:

● Eat a nutritionally balanced diet daily
● Add probiotics to your diet
● Add prebiotics to your diet
● Add L-Glutamine to your diet
● Chew food thoroughly
● Stay hydrated
● Eliminate gluten (even if you are not sensitive to it)
● Eliminate dairy (even if you are not sensitive to it)
● Eliminate all foods that you have any sensitivities to
● Increase vitamin D to healthy levels (to achieve at least 50 ng/ml)

Our teeth mechanically reduce large pieces of food into smaller pieces. Saliva is mixed with food. This is a chemical digestion process. Saliva normally protects our teeth and gums from bacterial infection. Saliva also spreads the ‘‘taste’ of food around the entire mouth. Our digestive system breaks down food into absorbable nutrients. Digestion is key to a healthy body. Digestion begins in your mouth.
