|Ya Hippocrates had it right over 2000 years ago. Disease begins in the gut, and what’s on the end of our forks decides who we are. Many consider the next frontier in conventional and holistic medicine to be the gut as millions of dollars of research is being poured into this fascinating area of research.
So what health problems are connected to poor gut health? Pretty much everything you can think of including allergies, skin issues, gastrointestinal conditions, obesity, arthritis, fatigue, depression, anxiety, autism, alzheimers, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, etc., etc. You get the point.
The gut is the main focus of my practice because every single thing we do every moment of every day either promotes or degrades our “gut garden”. This includes food especially as this is what “feeds” the millions of microbes in us. If they do not get what they need, then they do not have the tools in their toolbox to create health for us.
