All disease begins in the gut

More than 2000 years ago, Hippocrates said “all disease begins in the gut.” We’ re only now beginning to discover just how right he was.

Gastrointestinal (GI) function is vital for general health. This includes balancing beneficial microbial flora in the gut to enhance health benefits. GI health is key in digestion, nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens. Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional insufficiencies, and various disease states. Poor GI function can also lead to food allergies and other toxicities.

Your intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, some beneficial, some neutral, and some that can be harmful. It is essential to know the microbial balance of your GI tract, especially if you have chronic health problems. Health enhancing intestinal bacteria serve to prevent the overgrowth of potentially harmful bacteria in the gut.  Scientific literature has associated a wide variety of common illnesses to poor gut function including, but not limited to:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease

GI Effects Stool Profile

The G.I. Effects Stool Profile addresses key components of proper G.I. health including measurements of beneficial microbial flora, opportunistic bacteria, yeast, parasitic infection, markers of inflammation, immune function, and digestion and absorption.

Restoring Healthy Digestive Function

Continual overeating, use of stimulants (such as coffee) and the ingestion of toxic drugs (prescription and non-prescription) deplete the vital energies of the body.   Be careful of the toxic influences our bodies sustain on a day-to day basis.   The body must continuously expend energy in trying to neutralize and eliminate them. The body will ultimately break down unless given the opportunity to recover its energies.
