Healing your intestines
Heal your intestines - and your brain, immune system, intuition, and your emotional life will heal, too.
So much of your overall health and well being depends on the health of your digestive tract. Scientists now realize that within your intestines is found your second brain, the enteric nervous system, woven in the tissues of your stomach, small intestine, and colon. Here in your intestines is found a unique form of intelligence that supports the function of your cranial brain, gives you intuition (the familiar gut feelings), and a whole array of neurochemicals — including natural opioids that contribute to your happiness, optimism, and sense of well-being.
More neurotransmitters exist in your gut than the brain in your skull, which means so much of your optimism, mood, and emotional stability depends on your intestinal health. And overall, the health and function of your brain depends to a great extent on the health of your intestines.
Meanwhile, 80 percent of your immune system lives in your intestines, and thus the strength of your defenses depend on the health and function of your intestines. In addition, your intestines are the home of your microbiome, the vast population of microbes and friendly bacteria that determine the health of your digestion, the balance of blood pH and hormones, as well as many other essential functions.
Healthy intestines also protect you against so many of the auto-immune disorders that are rising to epidemic proportions today.
This one-day workshop will show you how to heal your intestines, replenish your microbiome, and, in turn, support the health of your digestion, brain, immune system, and emotional life.
