5 Steps to Obtain Optimal Health | Part 2
Clean Out Your Liver
Our livers need all the help they can get as we are exposed to toxins all day long from the air we breathe to the water we drink. if you eat processed foods, fast food, take pharmaceutical medications, drink alcohol regularly or eat out, you have more toxins built up in your body. It’s wise to do a liver cleanse at least twice a year as your liver gets bogged down easy and once that happens it has trouble making the right hormones for your body and that can lead to weight gain, mood changes, and inflammation in the body.
Fix Your Digestive System
Everything that goes in our mouth has to pass through the digestive system first. Processed foods, genetically modified foods(especially soy, corn, wheat, potatoes & tomatoes), fast food, medications, and alcohol are some of the most damaging things to our digestive system lining. These molecules get into the system and sit on the lining causing an erosion of the tissue leading to leaky gut. The majority of us have leaky gut due to the toxins in our environment, the foods we eat and the medications we take. It is critical to heal your digestive system lining to prevent autoimmune conditions, hypothyroidism, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and multiple food sensitivities. If you are over 30 it is likely that you lack sufficient stomach acid and digestive enzymes to break down your food, pair that with lack of chewing your food and you get food sitting irritating the gut lining. Probiotics are crucial to helping us breakdown our food and absorb vitamins and minerals. Give Your digestive system a boost by using collagen protein daily for a month, digestive enzymes with each meal and probiotics daily with food.
