When our internal body is overloaded, it talks to us with signs and symptoms. We develop allergies, we lose energy and much more. What is your body saying to you??? Here’s a sample of what your body may be saying to you when your gastrointestinal system is out of balance.
____ nausea (especially when taking supplements)
____ constipation or diarrhea or both
____ pale or greasy/ dry or hard stools
____ any bowel “itis” colitis, gastritis, etc.
____ bad breath/foot odour
____ pain and/or discomfort in the right side under the ribs after eating
____ burping of bitter bile
____ itching skin, especially shins
____ morning sickness in pregnancy
This system includes the liver, gallbladder, colon and entire GI tract!
Each of your elimination organs helps to rid the body of about two pounds of material per day in the normal healthy adult. That’s a lot of waste! These elimination organs also include the kidneys, bladder and urinary tract, the lungs, the skin (the largest organ we have) and the blood and lymph systems. It’s key to the body’s optimal functioning that these organ stay clean and running at maximum capacity. Here’s the rub. Day to day living puts stress on these organs and they get plugged up with excess waste material – just like the plumbing in your home or the filter in your furnace or car – they get plugged and things slow down. Even if you are careful not to dump too much garbage down the drain, pipes can still get clogged. This is the same with our bodies and let’s face it, most of us often dump too much garbage down our drain: bad food choices, processed foods and drinks, etc.
There is hope! Talk to me about how auto-intoxicated your body might be and we can set up a plan to clear the drains and get you feeling your best!
yours in health,
