Did you know that the health of your whole being depends on the health of your digestion?  

Seems simple, but many people don't give it a second thought.   Many Americans are dependent on ant-acids to get through the day.   Ever wonder what an ant-acid does to your digestion? It lowers your acid, which causes a chain reaction in the entire lower digestive tract.   If you don't have enough acid in your stomach, how do you expect to break down proteins?

If you don't chew enough, your food has not been coated with digestive enzymes in the saliva that help you to digest.   This is the main reason for acid indigestion.
So PLEASE CHEW and concentrate on the foods you are eating.   Focus on your meals, not the news (especially not the news!), sit quietly, maybe look out the window at nature, which is soothing.   You will actually taste your foods when you take the time to chew and focus on the meal.

When I was in France, I noticed that the French do not speak during a meal.   Their restaurants were so quiet, it was strange.   I wondered what they must think of the Americans - boisterous barbarians probably! Think about it, they eat a lot of dairy, rich foods, but they are all thin and healthy, don't have heart conditions. . .   Of course they don't give their cows growth hormones either, and their portions are normal - protein the size of a deck of cards, salad, vegetables and you still see the plate underneath it all. My friend turned to me (when we ate our first meal) and said, where's the rest?   I always felt like they gave me just the right amount.

With the overwhelming amount of I.B.S., Crohn's, Candida, it's time we really address our digestion and take good care to be sure we are absorbing nutrients from our food.   As we age, our enzymes dwindle and we often need to supplement.   You know that if you take anti-biotics or eat animal products that have been given anti-biotics, you must supplement with a probiotic.   Cancer patients ALL need probiotics, this helps balance the good - gut bacteria and helps you to absorb energy from your food.   It reduces and eliminates bloating and builds immunity.  

When we are irritated, many of us cannot digest our foods, it is very important to Not eat when under stress.   If you find you are always stressed, then learn to meditate, take a walk in nature, clear your mind - and at the same time body - of negativity.   Breathe deeply and absorb the fresh air and sunshine.   Take in the colors, notice the animals, listen to the birds and trees rustling in the wind.   This is very soothing - it's nature's tranquil-izer.  

We don't need drugs, we need to take time for ourselves and spend time in nature. Eat well, laugh with friends, share our love and smile every day!  EVERY DAY!!! When you look in the mirror, smile and tell yourself "I love you" (say your name). This is very healing. Many of us have not heard it enough in our lives.   Please forgive yourself and love yourself, because this is what will heal not only your digestion but your ability to digest life.

Peace and Many Blessings during this holiday season.   Prepare yourselves to be healthy and happy, know it is available for all, focus on the joy of life, and be light and loving to all you meet.   We are all light beings, we sometimes need a little reminder. :
