Diet and Digestion are the keys to good health.
Why? Proper diet and digestion decreases inflammation, improves immunity, decreases toxic load, and increases nutrient absorption.
The opposite is also true. With poor diet and digestion comes increased inflammation, poor immunity, an increase in toxins, and a depletion of nutrients. Hence, you are swimming against the current when trying to cure illness without addressing diet and digestion.
A few facts. Over 80% of the body's entire immune system resides in the gut. Digestion can take up to 30% of your daily energy intake. As a fetus, the neural crest breaks in two with 2/3 becoming the brain and spinal cord, the other 1/3 becoming the nerves of digestion (a separate, independent brain). 90% of the Serotonin that you produce daily is made in your gut.
