Digestion Starts in the North
and Moves to the South
We have to eat. That’s the way we get energy and nutrients. It’s like putting fuel in our cars. But what happens when we eat and it makes up feel uncomfortable or even creates pain and disease in us?
For digestion to occur properly, we need to have enough Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) in our stomachs. Sometimes TV makes us think that the GERD or Acid Reflux we have is a result of too much acid and we need something to suppress our acid. That is rarely the case. Most people don’t have enough acid and the acid we experience is really just rotting food coming back up.
This lack of stomach acid will also contribute to Bloating, Gas and Pain because we aren’t breaking our food down in small enough particles, which is the job of the Hydrochloric Acid. Some reasons for low HCL are stress, age and poor diet.
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF YOUR HEALTH PROBLEMS
If you don’t break your food down, you don’t get the nutrients out of it and you end up with deficiencies. Deficiencies mean your body doesn’t have the fuel to help it run properly or repair/build itself back up.
So you end up fat, tired, with hormonal problems, maybe depressed, inflamed and diseased. Oh – and yeah – more digestive problems! How?
Well, not having enough HCL means that certain other digestive processes don’t get triggered and you end up with Vitamin A, D, E and K deficiencies, not to mention Gall Bladder issues such as Greasy Food Intolerances, Pain Between Shoulder Blades, Burping/Belching and uncomfortable Fullness when you haven’t even eaten that much.
More Ways to Get Fat
The next digestive problem that we come up against is Cravings for Sugar and Carbohydrates, which will lead to Weight Gain, Fatigue, Irritability, Blood Sugar problems, Hormonal Problems and eventually Diabetes. Your poor Pancreas gets called on over and over again to pump out the Insulin (as well as digestive enzymes) when you eat the sugar and carbs until it just gets so tired it ups and quits – also known as diabetes. Then all that high blood sugar we are left with wrecks havoc on our body in the form of inflammation – cardiovascular, kidney, joints, etc.
Now, all these cravings that tempt us to eat sugar and carbohydrates do more than just ruin our energy and waist line, they also cause us to have High Cholesterol and Triglycerides because our poor Fatty Liver converts the Sugar and Carbs to cholesterol and triglycerides.
Our Southern Hemisphere
Moving along the Digestive Tract to the Gut, or “Southern Part” is where we find 75% of our immune system. Frequent illness that leads to antibiotic use, which then leads to a more illness due to the bad bacteria growing out of control, destroys the gut even further. Combine that with low HCL in the North, Sugar, Stress, GMOs, Gluten, Medication, Pesticides, Plastics and Metals and you have quite the Leaky Gut!
In our Gut, or our second brain, we can experience extreme discomfort from Leaky Gut, Food Intolerances, Small Bacterial Overgrowth, Parasites and Candida in our lower intestines, which can cause at the least Hormonal Issues, Weight Gain, Gas, Boating, Constipation, IBS, Acne, and at the most Auto Immune, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Anxiety/Depression and ADD/ADHD.
It isn’t necessary to suffer from any of the above symptoms. They can all be addressed with a proper assessment of what your body really needs to repair itself.
After a thorough interview and analysis, we can recommend a Designed Clinical Nutrition Program that includes diet, lifestyle adjustments and supplements, specifically tailored to you, to help you address your health concerns and goals.
