How’s your “Gut Garden” Growing?

​Digestion is a HOT topic in my Functional Nutrition practice as all roads lead back to digestion.

Are you a Gasey Gus? Or a Stinky Pete? Well, this is due to fermentation of, no not beer, your food!

If what you consume isn’t moving through the digestive tract in a timely fashion, it ferments; creating gas, bloating, undigested food in the stool, constipation, nutrient deficiencies, and more.

FYI: Rotting food AKA compost should stay on the outside of the body, like in the vegetable garden, not in your “gut garden”. Gas, cramping, constipation, reflux, are all signs of digestive imbalance. Below are simple steps toward improving your digestion:

  1. Fermented foods(2) such as cabbage, carrots, and beets support a healthy “gut garden”.
  2. Drinking 1 Tablespoon Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar + 1 Teaspoon of raw honey of dissolved in 6-8ozs water 1-3x per day is helpful with digestion, immunity, weight loss.(1). 
  3. Maintaining a balanced, and acidic pH in the stomach is the beginning of balanced digestion and the maintence of health.

Stay tuned for next month’s topic, “The Witching Hour” – why you may be waking at 2:00AM. Remember, there is no shortcut to health – small changes over time= long term wellness!
