Get Started and Get Clean!

You know those days where you are either so busy or so tired that you haven't showered, maybe grungy clothes, dirty hair, just plain yuck.  Well that's what the inside of most of our insides are feeling like right now.  Screaming for a shower and begging to be clean again. 
So what do we do that junks up our guts this badly?  According to Ethan Huff "Irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease -- these and many other intestinal problems are the direct result of a gut that has been compromised by things like bad diet, vaccines, GMOs, antibiotics, and a lack of probiotic foods. But they are also conditions that can be effectively mitigated and even reversed through improved diet and supplementation with probiotic foods and nutrients.

    The entire intestinal environment, in other words, has been specifically designed to protect the body from foreign invaders, whether it be toxins, harmful organisms, or malignant cell growths. But when this system is disrupted by a lack of proper nutrients, for instance, or from damage caused by antibiotics and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), the intestinal lining gradually loses its ability to protect the body against harm."

   Possible signs that your gut is gunked up are:
  • Constipation                                      
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Asthma
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Prostate Trouble
  • Difficult Weight Loss
  • Frequent Colds
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Insomnia
  • Food Cravings
  • Abdominal Gas
  • Hypertension
  • Foul Body Odor
  • Menstrual Problems
  • Headaches
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Backaches
  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Diarrhea
  • Distended Abdomen
  • Bad Breath/ Halitosis
  • Skin Problems
   So you throw all that in with some parasites (yes, alot of us Americans get parsites and don't even know it- crawling around and taking over our intestines), and maybe its time to do some house cleaning. 

   Health is a journey that we are all on our way in, wether we want to be or not.  Some are making efforts and others are floating along, hoping for the best, but we are all on this journey.  What better way to prepare for a new journey than strengthened and cleansed? 

Inside our bodies it's an entire ecosystem of its own.  Living and thriving within us, we need this relationship with bacteria to keep us not only functioning but to stay alive. 

Where do you start this cleanse?  Stay tuned for the next post....!   :)
