This is a picture nearly all of my patients see me draw, at one time or another. When you think about the human body in its simplest form, it really is just a tube, with the entrance at the top and the exit down below. I draw this picture to illustrate the idea that what happens on the inside of the tube, is reflected all the way through to the outside of the tube.
A great many things that we think of as disease, can be traced back to imbalance in the digestive system. ADHD, eczema, psoriasis, headaches, asthma, joint pain, autoimmune disease, high blood pressure, fatigue, the list goes on and on… nearly all of these conditions can be tremendously improved, if not eliminated, by healing the digestive tract.
Food sensitivities and poor digestive health play an unfortunately large role in disease these days. Whether due to the genetic modification of foods, a generalized increase in the level of toxins in our environment, bad eating habits, or more likely a combination of all of the above; people are becoming increasingly reactive to certain foods.
I have seen joint pain disappear, psoriasis resolved, asthma eliminated, acne cleared up, and many other diseases be either completely or significantly improved, simply with healing the digestive system. Making sure that the core of the tube, your digestive system, is healthy and happy, is one of the most basic steps to improving the health of the rest of your body.
