Top 5 Reasons Why Your Digestive System is Out of Whack
Ask most people how their digestive system works and they will most likely tell you that it’s like a plumbing system. Things (food) go in, gets crushed up, melted, then works its way out through a long system of complicated tubing. This is a simplified version, true, but if you notice there is no mention of the enzymes, absorption, and assimilation of food.
Like everything in this world, your gut contains both good and bad bacteria. However, for your digestive system to work properly, you need the proper balance of those things. Your digestive system has almost 3 pounds of bacteria, with more than 500 different species, that allow you to digest your food as well as absorb the most nutrients possible.
If you have too many of the “bad” bacteria, such as yeast, and not enough of the good bacteria, such as lactobacillus, then not only will your digestive system not work properly, it can actually damage your health.
Unfortunately, Americans have created a lifetime of bad eating habits that include an overdose of sugars, toxins, junk food, and alcohol that have destroyed out natural bacterial balance.
Take a look at the top 5 reasons Americans have so many digestive issues and how you can restore the proper balance to your body and regain your health.
1. Toxic Heavy Metals
Heavy metals are brought into our lives in various ways but some are more problematic than others.
Mercury is willingly introduced into our bodies through vaccinations.
Mercury is a deadly toxin and is difficult for the gallbladder, pancreas, as well as the liver to function properly and to remove these metals from the body. Metals also kill off the good bacteria in our guts, which make processing foods even more difficult.
Metals are hard to remove and should be done professionally, but you can also try using cilantro and chlorella to try to bind them as well as removing them from your body.
