AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Shane Young | July 3, 2012 |
Did you know that there’s a direct relationship between your digestive tract and your physical performance during exercise? There are other numerous benefits of a properly functioning digestive tract. These include proper absorption of vitamins and minerals, elimination and reduction of food intolerances, proper organ functionality, and an overall enhanced sense of well being.
Here are some digestive health action items you can take to help maintain a healthy digestive system:
*Drink 1-2 glasses of filtered, room temperature water around 15 minutes prior to each meal.
*Avoid processed foods and foods that are enzyme and nutrient deficient
*If your digetion is poor, test for food allergy/ intolerances
*Eat as much raw and minimally processed whole foods as possible
*Use digestive enzymes, as needed
*Beware of phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors in seeds and grains (Soak these foods prior to cosumption.)
*Chew your food until it’s liquified (Parasites love undigested proteins and sugars.)
*If your digestion is challenged, eat smaller meals more frequently
You can find out more information on a healthy digestive system in Paul Chek’s book “Eat, Move and Be Healthy.”
