Gut Feeling – How your intestinal tract affects everything else
The digestive tract can be out of sight and out of mind until it calls attention to itself with something like heartburn, gas, constipation or the reverse. But even when it isn’t talking to us, it is indirectly controlling virtually every aspect of our health. Energy, mood, joint function and a vast array of conditions can be improved by increasing the effectiveness of digestion in its various stages. Conversely, a digestive system that is out of balance can actually be a cause of disease. Learn how much of your health is under your control.
