Ok so we are about to have a pretty awkward conversation right now but unfortunately if good health is what you are after you better start paying attention to the status quo. As the doctors from Mayo Clinic, Harvard Medical School, Yale say "death begins in the colon" More than likely if you have some form of gut issue you have a serious condition brewing in your body. Gut health is the most important factor when it comes to achieving optimal health and fitness.
Here is two crazy facts for you.
The average American has 20 pounds of poop sitting there in their digestive trap just rotting away
Most people have on average 8+ undigested meals in their gut at any given time of poop sitting there in their digestive trap just rotting away.
This becomes toxic waste just sitting in your body which can actually start to poison you. You can experience the following symptoms;
- Fatigue - Weight gain - Digestive issues (like irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut syndrome, constipation, and diarrhea) - Skin conditions (like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne, etc.) - Brain fog (focus/attention issues) - Mood swings - Anxiety - Depression
Poop matters. Your digestive system impacts the health of your entire body. Research shows up to 70-80% of your immune system is located in your digestive system alone. In fact if you are experiencing any of the following health issues which have been directly correlated to an unhealthy gut you may need to pay a little more attention to what is happening with your body;
-Mood Swings / Depression
-Inflammation / Joint Pain
Now a lot of these digestive issues can be attributed to the poor quality of our food and increase of unnatural products containing preservatives, artificial ingredients, deep fried foods, sugar and GMO's.
Stop treating your symptoms and start re-balancing your gut to achieve greater health. Treating the symptoms is just like a band aid you will keep experiencing poor health if you do not treat the cause. Stop eating crap food and start exercising. This is well within your reach to achieve this balance.
