Sluggish bowel function is a primary factor in many health problems including: fatigue, headaches, chronic respiratory problems, skin rashes, insomnia, poor memory, and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.
For most people they tend to separate one part of the body from the rest. If I have a headache it must be caused by a pain in the head or neck. If I am having respiratory infections I should treat the lungs. In reality the body is completely interconnected and symptoms appearing in one location may, and often do, have their origins in other areas.
What I have found over the years is that toxins building up in the bowels and leaking back into the blood will clog up the liver and recycle and deposit into tissues causing pain and dysfunction.
Improving your intestinal and liver health will have far reaching benefits including:
- Better energy
- Clearer thinking
- Better sleep
- Improved muscle/Fat ratio
- Losing excess fat
- Healthier skin and hair
- Reduced risk of chronic illness
- Reduced pain
In the video clip below I review some important principles for supporting healthy bowel function.
