About Gut Health

Is your gut a battlefield? Yes… and you may not be winning.

Yes, the human body is a healing machine. It is designed that way. But with today’s ever-increasing level of toxicity and stress, your gut is constantly under attack.

With 80% of our immunity residing in the gut, when you throw the microbiome out of balance, and especially with stress or emotions, your health suffers.

  • Poor immunity, bowel irregularity, aches and body-wide soreness.
  • Weight gain, poor focus, joint issues, uncontrolled cravings.
  • Stiffness, inconsistent sleep, mood fluctuation, and even weak hair and nails…
  • And LOWERED immunity.

The good news? You can easily solve many (if not most) chronic illnesses by repairing your gut!

Depression, anxiety, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, hormone imbalance…

Disease originates in the intestines, but health starts there as well.

Your gut (aka your intestinal lining) is literally the GATEWAY to health – ALL health. And it regenerates every single week. (Sometimes even faster!)

Your gastrointestinal system is home to trillions of bacteria – and millions of microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, viruses, parasites, etc.) living within your body.

The bacteria help inform your immune system of what’s happening in the gut and help fight off infections, and keep the peace.

Whether your goal is to have tons more energy, to repair your gut, to reverse autoimmunity, to overcome infections (such as candida, SIBO or parasites), to lose weight, overcome chronic fatigue, banish brain fog, detoxify your body, or boost your immune system, your gut is your entry point.

There is a one-cell thick layer of gut lining that protects your body from toxins, bacteria, undigested food particles and things we have to google, like lipopolysaccharides … and of course… viruses.

And that gut lining? It replaces itself every 7-10 days (sometimes sooner).
So you CAN impact your health … and quickly.

Your GI system is home to trillions of bacteria – and millions of microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, viruses, parasites, etc.) living within your body.

These “critters” are essential to the most basic biological mechanisms required for human life such as digestion, energy production, and detoxification.

When you have leaky gut, or gut dysbiosis, that means there is an upset to the natural balance of microorganisms in your gut. AND THAT has a domino effect on your health that is staggering.

These bacteria help inform your immune system of what’s happening in the gut and help fight off infections and keep the peace.

The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine), once said, “All disease begins in the gut.”

When your system is bombarded with the endless toxins we absorb every day, the lining of your intestines (aka your gut) breaks down…

Which allows these toxins to escape into your bloodstream, where they go on to wreak havoc on the rest of your body.

Your digestive system affects everything from your immune response, stress levels, sleep patterns, skin clarity, energy reserves… and the list goes on.

Scientists have actually nicknamed the gut your “second brain” because this complex system has the power to change your mood and is a central mainframe for your immune system.

And your gut bacteria actually “inform” your immune system of what’s happening in your body, to help fight off infections, support detoxification and basically, keep the peace

It has long been established that gut bacteria are largely connected to immune function and metabolic health. However, researchers have only scratched the surface when it comes to their role in thinking, boosting overall mood, and addressing depression and other mental health conditions.

And your gut (aka your microbiome) has a nervous system that is as complex as your central nervous system. In fact, your gut actually contains more neurotransmitters than your brain does!

The nerves and neurons in your gut are actually wired back to your brain, with messages traveling in both directions, back and forth.

And if those messages get blocked, for any reason, – from the brain to the gut or the gut to the brain – your health suffers.

A KEY to not getting sick with ANY virus or illness is absolutely how you inspire and support your own IMMUNE system – and that means your gut.

And it’s not JUST immunity.

Confused about how to ramp up your metabolism and lose weight?
That’s gut health also!

With the endless environmental and dietary toxins we’re exposed to, it’s very likely that your body is… clogged up… and functioning poorly.

If that’s the case, then it’s also causing a whole slew of issues, including a metabolism that can’t even properly turn food into nutrition and energy, and is, instead, may be storing it as fat.

What if ONE week could be the turning point for your metabolism AND your weight?
What if you could have a life with more energy, healthy weight loss, and even more confidence?

The great news is that effort can start right now. Immediately!

Your gut health (aka ‘everything inside the tube going from the mouth to the other end’) is the GATEWAY to health! Dr. Tom has said many times “if there is only 1 thing you’re going to do to be as healthy as possible, focus on creating an anti-inflammatory environment in your gut“. For every 1 directing message your brain sends to the gut, your gut sends 9 directing messages to the brain – and it regenerates every 3-5 days. Want to regenerate healthier cells in your gut?
