Please hear me when I say, I am in no way attempting to be “trendy” as I enter the waters of talking about gut health. And hear me when I say I am no expert by any means. But I do feel like a messenger of heaven with a burning scroll in my hand. This is a topic that needs to be discussed. Especially in a time where cut abs seem to be stealing the show while keeping us all from missing the point of true health.
Is it possible to have a rock-hard six-pack on the outside while having a gut that can barely process yesterday’s chicken salad? Totally! Just because somebody claims allegiance to clean eating does not make one clean.
What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them. – Matthew 15:11
The gut, just like our brain, is filled with millions of neurons, each tasked with the job of managing our inner workings, this is why the gut has been called our “second brain.”Just like our brain, it is the guts job to break down and process input (whether good or bad) in order to create output (to be used for good or bad.) Garbage in. Garbage out. But what if something is “blocking” the processing of input and output and it’s not just our foods we can blame? What if WE are getting in the way of God’s healthy “flow?” for our lives?
We need a healthy gut. Just like we need a healthy brain.
But something blocks us. Something gets in the way. Would you agree?
How do you know I am talking to you? Well, if you struggle with any of the following, I am talking to you:
- Lose stools
- Food allergies or sensitivities
- Skin problems like eczema or rosacea
- Mood swings, irritability or depression
