“The Ayurvedic route to great health involves two simple steps: Doing less and Being more.”
Ayurveda has recognized that all diseases begin in the gut over 5000 years ago and modern science now acknowledges that the gut is vital to overall health. Gastrointestinal health can be the root cause for many other health issues including hormones, heart, brain and mental health. I look at the gut as the foundation of where healing begins. The gut microbiome weighs more than your brain and is referred to as your second brain and a second endocrine organ. The gut has its own neurons (brain cells) to communicate with the brain and contains more than 70% of your immune system. The trillions of bacteria living in your gut are in constant communication with your brain (Gut-Brain Axis) and immune system.
The gut microbiome control your mood, immunity, energy levels, hormone production, appetite and many other functions in the body. By improving the types of food you eat and improving the health of your microbiota, you can improve your overall health. The gut microbiome is significantly influenced by the foods you put into your body and your environment. If left unmanaged, digestive problems can wreak havoc on your entire bodily system. It can lead to autoimmune disorders, hormonal imbalance, infertility, PMS, mood disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, acne, dementia, cancer, and more. Having a healthy gut is central to your entire wellbeing.
