Natural Remedies For Digestive Health
It’s time we took a serious look at more natural remedies for our health because the American way of life sit is now has become extremely hazardous to our health. A scary statistic is that out of the 10 leading causes of death in the US, 4 are directly associated with improper diet or dietary excess.
These causes of death include coronary heart disease, certain types of cancer, stroke, and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. These are responsible for almost two thirds of American deaths every year.
We now have more drugs and people on these medications than ever before in history, with even more being invented and marketed to help the ever-growing number of disorders and people who suffer from them.
Many people are using more than one medication for relief of such symptoms of:
- abdominal cramps
- dry, flakey skin
- plus many more….
Medical drugs being prescribed for these an other digestive health disorders include:
- ulcer meds
- stool softeners
Americans are now the fattest people in the world and the most drug dependent. Together with stress and environmental conditions, dote is perhaps the largest contributing factor.
We are all part of a pretty scary food science experiment:
What will be the outcome from after 3 generations of people being fed large amounts of food with low nutritional value and almost no fiber and loaded with additives, drugs and chemicals?
Is it a coincidence that since 1980:
- men’s sperm counts have decreased by 50%
- America has the largest number of obese people in the world
- more violence than ever
- more suicides than ever
- more ADHD in children than ever
- cancer and heart disease has continual risen every single year!
The health and medical industries will not provide us with any cures, just more druges to help the symptoms as they arise… and that they will!
Only we can help ourselves with natural remedies for our own digestive health.
If you look at the list of medication above, there is a natural way to cure every symptom those drugs are being used for. Natural foods and herbs that cost a fraction of the price we’re spending on those marketed drugs.
What are these cures?
It starts with diet. We get those digestive problems because of so many nutritional deficiencies in our high processed food diet. Quality nutrients from real food, fruits, vegetables and non-processed grains.
It’s not an easy thing to change over to in a day or two but it’s worth the effort, for our health’s sake. Start eliminating just some of the high processed foods you know you eat everyday. Things like pastries that are loaded with additives and sugars but contain a ton of no-good calories.
Anything made with white flour will help clog up your system and make your colon slow and sluggish. When you don’t add the extra fiber needed, many disorders, even colon cancer can be just around the corner.
Most essential quality nutrients from one piece of fruit
The kiwifruit has the most varied and wide assortment of nutrients than any other fruit. It has been studied and proven to lower sugar blood and cholesterol levels, help asthma, boost the immune system and prevent constipation.
Eating kiwifruit is like taking mother natures multi vitamin an mineral. But it’s much more than that. The kiwi contains 4 of the most important nutrients for good digestive health:
Enzymes – digestive enzymes are essential for proper digestion, without which your body cannot absorb nutrients, even if you’re eating healthy foods.
Fiber – dietary fiber is one of the most important substances we need for having good digestive health and is one of the most common deficiencies there is thanks to our highly processed food diets.
Phenolic Compounds – phenols have been shown to stop production of dangerous bacteria and at the same time promote the growth of good bacteria in our intestines. Phenols also contain powerful antioxidants that protect our body from many dangerous bacteria and the process of pre-mature aging, such as wrinkling of the skin and early blindness.
Prebiotics – these come from non-processed grains, fruits and vegetables. They are the nutrients that feed our beneficial bacteria (probiotics) which give us good digestive health. Scientific research has shown them to be associated with improving mineral absorption, increased immune performance, reduction in allergies, and cardiovascular health.
