Have You Got The Guts To Be Really Healthy? - Don Chisholm
For the last 12 years Don Chisholm has worked on the theory that we are not what we eat, 'We are what we absorb'. Some evidence of this are the millions in the UK who are obese but registered as malnourished, also the 55,000 who die in UK hospitals from malnutrition.
We need 2 kilos of good bacteria in our gut to break down our foods so the nutrients can get to the cells, otherwise the food is useless. We also need the 500+ species of bacteria in our gut to do the variety of tasks to keep us healthy. You may already know that 80% of the immune is in the gut and without a balanced bacterium content, this is also compromised. So, what kills of our digestive and immune bacteria? Chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, birth control pills, stress, alcohol, antibiotics plus the thousands of chemicals we come in contact with every day.
This book is for beginners who are unaware of what should be general knowledge, it is an introduction to the fact we are living in an illusion that we are OK if we eat a healthy diet.
But, what is a health diet these days. Things have changed, our food has been compromised. Milk is not natural any more, wheat has been modified, and more and more chemicals, preservatives, artificial colours and flavours are added to processed foods, which has increased diseases such as asthma, chronic fatigue, celiac disease, and just about any condition that is gut related. Bloating, IBS, digestive problems are just a few more of what happens when the gut is out of balance. But the real killers such as Cancer, heart disease and diabetes are not on the decline, so more attention needs to be presented on disease prevention, and that must start with what we consume. Children are the latest victims of the new generation of gut problems, ADD, ADHD, Autism, learning difficulties and may more can also be associated with the gut.
If we don't make a difference now, future generations will suffer needlessly as the information is available, but very few know or have access to it.
