Gut Health - Wheat Belly or Beer Belly?

What’s the difference between bread and beer? Alcohol…

One is a liquid form of the other and do the same damage to your gut. Most people think that a belly is all fat when in fact, it’s mostly water from gut inflammation.  Some foods can irritate the lining of the gut and cause it to separate its cell structure in such a way that food leaks directly into the bloodstream where the immune system starts to attach it from not recognizing it as food.  It enters the bloodstream prematurely prior to being effectively digested into its usable components. Hence the name “Leaky Gut Syndrome”.   What we preach here at Holistic Wellness Network is simply an elimination diet of known food irritants for a minimum of 30 days to see any physical changes that occur during that time.  If there is a positive change, such as weight loss, then we continue the program without reintroducing those known food irritants such as processed wheat, processed dairy, processed salt, and processed sugar.

“The solution to pollution is dilution”.

When the gut is irritated through bad food choices, it sends water to the rescue to dilute the toxins from pesticides, herbacides, rodentacides, and fugicides from killing you.  Ever wonder why organic carrots are so small in comparison to conventionally grown carrots?  It’s water uptake in the plant to dilute the toxins in the same way our body responds to them.
