Tomorrow is World Health Day and the WHO (World Health Organization) will be trumpeting about all the “authoritative health information” they provide to people all over the world.
Sorry, but I don’t buy it.
The WHO and other organizations just like it simply parrots what they have been told by mainstream medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. Rarely will you see natural, holistic health measures given any degree of credibility.
Well, if you’re interested in truly celebrating World Health Day by actually doing something to promote health and a better-feeling you, you’re in the right place!
Here’s the best way to start:
Attain a healthier balance
When it comes to getting on the road to better health, it’s a matter of balance.
Your hormones need to be balanced. You need a good balance of rest and exercise. You need a balanced diet that provides a wide range of nutrients. You need to balance stress and relaxation.
But arguably the most important balance of all is in your gut bacteria!
Because having an unhealthy flora balance that favors harmful microbes (aka dysbiosis) can cause a wide range of health problems including all of these:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Bad breath
- Bowel urgency
- Celiac disease
- Cystic acne
- Depression and anxiety
- Food allergies & sensitivities
- Foul-smelling stools
- Frequent indigestion
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Interstitial cystitis
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Itching in vagina, anus or other areas
- Mucus or blood in stool
- Nausea after taking vitamins
- Rectal itching
- Restless leg syndrome
- Sinus congestion
- Skin problems
- Undigested food in stools
The ideal balance in your gut should be at least 85 percent healthy bacteria and 15 percent or less harmful microbes.
But many people are walking around with the exact opposite of what they should have!
And paying a dear price with their health.
What type are YOU?
Dysbiosis comes in several different types—see which ones might sound like YOU:
Insufficiency dysbiosis: This is usually a consequence of poor digestion, taking too many antibiotics or getting too little fiber. It’s associated with IBS and food sensitivities.
Putrefaction dysbiosis: This is the result of not having enough digestive enzymes or stomach acid to break down proteins. It can cause vitamin B12 deficiency and is associated with hormone-related cancers. This is typically the result of using acid reducers or eating lots of processed and fast foods.
Fermentation dysbiosis: This occurs when you eat too many refined carbs and sugars. Its classic symptoms are chronic gas and bloating.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO): This is when bacteria that normally reside in the large intestine “swim upstream” into the small intestine, usually due to low stomach acid and use of acid reducers. The most common symptoms are chronic gas, bloating and constipation.
Fungal dysbiosis: This is an overgrowth of Candida in your gut, and can result from stress, use of antibiotics, birth control pills or steroids, and eating too many refined carbs and sugars. Candida is the ultimate masquerader and can cause a wide variety of problems including: gas, bloating, constipation, anxiety, depression, insomnia, bladder infections, vaginal infections, mood swings, fuzzy thinking, ringing in the ears and PMS symptoms.
Bring it back into the right balance
Even though dysbiosis can cause a myriad of problems for you, the good news is you can feel a whole lot better when you take steps to bring your gut back into balance.
Here are some very helpful strategies to get you on the road to a healthier gut:
Probiotics. There’s nothing better than giving your system a daily dose of the healthful bacteria it so desperately needs.
And the best probiotic for this crucial job is Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula!
Super Shield contains both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains—this is crucial because Lactobacillus strains reside in your small intestine and Bifidobacteria live in the large intestine. So to have a formula that contains only one or the other is selling your system short, and likely keeping you from feeling as great as you could!
Avoid processed and fast foods. These are extremely difficult for your body to break down and cause you to expend far more digestive enzymes than Nature ever intended you to.
Plus they are loaded with refined carbs (which feed harmful yeasts in your gut), are nutrient-poor and create loads of acid wastes that make your innards resemble a clogged toilet.
How’s that for a visual?
Structure your meals to promote sound digestion and curb heartburn. The Great Taste No Pain system can show you what to do here.
Great Taste No Pain teaches you what foods to pair together to help pave the way for smooth, comfortable digestion, less gas and bloating and more regular BMs!
Now don’t worry—I’m not talking about existing on rabbit food here! Great Taste No Pain includes delicious recipes for meats, poultry, fish, soups, stews, salads and even desserts!
Digestive enzyme supplementation. If you feel enzyme shortages or low stomach acid may be an issue for you, supplementation with an outstanding enzyme formula like Digestizol Max is just what you need.
Digestizol Max’s complete blend of 15 plant-derived enzymes can work alongside your system’s enzymes and promote thorough, complete digestion, and less heartburn and constipation.
Eat garlic and oregano. These have anti-microbial properties and are very helpful in the fight against dysbiosis, so spice it up!
Note that Great Taste No Pain has many recipes including these delicious foods too!
See how much better YOU can feel when you help your gut get back into a healthier balance.
Then you’ll really have something to celebrate on World Health Day!
