You know that term gut feeling? Well it actually explains a lot about the digestive system and gut health.
Healing the cause of digestive problems begins with understanding the spiritual cause of why it first originated. What we may not be totally aware of is how digestive challenges were triggered way before the food hit the stomach.
The thought or memory of certain foods can trigger a reaction in our digestive system. Positively, our mouth can water at the thought of something delicious.
You see, a large percentage of your serotonin levels (which affects mood) is produced in the gut. In addition, the digestive system is responsible for the absorption of nutrients, lymphatic function, the immune system, and elimination, so when any of these functions are off, your whole system will feel out of whack.
Much of this can be linked to our soil not containing the enzymes it once did, our stress levels being at an all time high-which can lead to lower nutrient levels, pesticide and heavy metal exposure, which can weaken the gut lining, and poor food choices such as the overconsumption of sugar, food additives, white flour products and simple carbohydrates.
Finally, the digestive system is also linked to a large energy center known as the Solar Plexus chakra. This energy center controls how worthy we feel, how we are seen in the world, our self-esteem, our feeling of personal power and how we are actually digesting life. This chakra can even become imbalanced from the way we are parented-if there are not enough boundaries, or there are way too many-this can throw off our ability to discern for ourselves, and to feel like we are confident to make it in the world.
This is a high-strength supplement which combines a broad spectrum range of plant-derived digestive enzymes with carminative, anti-spasmodic and gut-soothing herbs.
Digestive enzymes are important because they enable us to break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats into their raw components in order to make the nutrients available for absorption and utilisation.
Over time, poor digestion leads to nutrients malnutrition and the beginning of a range of ailments. Similarly, we produce fewer digestive enzymes as we age - our bodies’ own reserves are finite.
