“We are what we eat.” This popular saying points to a simple truth that health and wellness begins in the gut. Unfortunately, for many of us who have grown up in the age where fake food is real and real food is for rabbits, our guts have suffered quite a bit and at this point, are likely quite damaged.
Processed foods, foods that are highly acidic, and meats laden with hormones and antibiotics all contribute to poor gut health, which can lead to a host of other health concerns from skin conditions, to autoimmune diseases, to weight gain, to mood instability.
To restore gut health it is imperative to remove and avoid all food toxins. Adopting a “practically paleo” diet like the one endorsed by SICFIT Scottsdale’s Food as Fuel Nutrition Seminars will get you on the right track. (The next Food as Fuel is scheduled for 7/16 at 7:30. This seminar is free and open to both members and nonmembers of the SICFIT community).
Once we illuminate the food offenders, we can begin incorporating foods and supplements that will begin to heal the gut as well:
- Fermentable fibers like sweet potatoes, yucca, and yams,
- Fermented foods like kefir, yogurt, kamboucha, sauerkraut, and kim chi
- Multi-species probiotics
- Ph Balancing/alkaline foods like spirulina, kale, spinach, broccoli, and chlorella
- High Quality Fish Oil
