What’s all the craze about eating gluten free? Well we can’t talk about food, until we talk about the gut, because believe it or not, the gut and the brain have this very cool relationship and they actually talk to each other. Haven’t you heard “my gut is telling me…?” Well it’s absolutely true, and it’s scientifically proven.
The intestinal tract, or the gut, helps filter out all the impurities, keeping the good in and the bad out. Other things also affect the gut lining, everything from stress, toxins, and medications, not to mention the unhealthy stuff like preservatives, sugar, and alcohol. And when eating non organic meat, we also get all those antibiotics that the animal got, in our system, making the gut bacteria unbalanced, unhealthy, and maybe wiping out all the probiotics we took all together.
Because of all this, the lining of the gut gets thin, and when this happens, little holes can start appearing. Eventually, all of the stuff that’s supposed to stay IN, starts leaking OUT into the blood stream. This is described as leaky gut. What makes this worse is that your immune system is in the lining of the intestinal tract.
Maybe you drink alcohol with no problem. Usually a drink or two after work is the norm, and maybe more than that on the weekend. But one day you take a few sips and you are already super drunk. What happened? Well over time, those “holes” have appeared in your gut, and those few sips went straight into your blood steam. This is both unhealthy and dangerous! Alcohol is an easy example, but the same thing happens when you eat white anything…sugar, wheat, white bagels, and pasta over time.
So if there are “holes” in your intestinal tract, there are “holes” in your immune system, making you susceptible to chronic health problems. Here at the Katy Wellness Center we see this far too often. Many diseases mask themselves with other names, but the core of the problem is in the gut. Great News!! Those “holes” can be fixed!
But it takes time, and patience. You know you’ve been eating this way for years, maybe decades, and you must have realistic expectations about the healing process. When your body is in this state, it’s basically a broken down Lamborghini. You would think it’s a crime to let a Lamborghini rust outside, when it should be treasured, and kept safe in the garage, treated with the utmost care.
During this healing phase, you must eat differently, and be committed to it. No whining, no excuses! Just decide what kind of car you want to drive. This is where eating gluten free begins, and in the process you’re getting rid of the inflammation all over the body, especially in the gut. Think of inflammation like getting a splinter in your finger. It is so annoying, and painful; it’s hard to focus on anything else. Your gut just screams out in a different way.
At The Katy Wellness Center, we have testimony after testimony of lives being radically transformed after treating the gut. We have a rock star product that acts like “spackle” for the gut, closing all those “holes.” Spackle is good for fixing holes anywhere in your house, and there is a supplement that behaves much in the same way. IPP Immune Protection Plus helps thicken the intestinal lining, keeping in what needs to stay in, and getting out what needs to stay out.
