Your Immune System And Your Gut
Americans now experience leaky gut syndrome, fibromyalgia, autoimmunity, and other diseases. But why?
Our food supply has changed. Farmers are able to increase their crops, fight insects and blight, but at the same time, some of this new technology is hurting our health.
Leaky gut syndrome means that toxins enter the blood stream through the lining of the gut and cause disease. Many illnesses often appear in people who appear to be perfectly healthy. Should we look to the diet as the possible culprit? Everything from skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema, to autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia are cropping up at ever increasing rates. But, so have new ingredients in the food we eat.
There are ingredients in our food that most people can’t even pronounce. We assume it’s safe because the FDA said it is. However, unnatural, man-made ingredients are being dumped into our foods to create longer shelf life and allows for quick meals. Some scientists believe that as much as 80% of our immunity is in the gut. Do unnatural ingredients cause health problems?
If our guts are continuously being assaulted by man-made, laboratory created additives, food colorings, and “mystery” ingredients, we should look no further than to our gut for healing. What goes in “leaks” into our bodies through our digestive tracts. If it’s not a God-made food, your body doesn’t know what to do with it. A decline in health can gradually appear. A tobacco user doesn’t start off sick, but in 20 years or so, the results of tobacco consumption can be devastating.
Tip of the Day: Read food labels. If you can’t pronounce it, denounce it. If possible, try to buy organic, nonGMO produce, and avoid pre-packaged foods.
