Soil and Guts
I remember when I used to be bloated ALL the time, and I had the worst gas.
Like, peel-the-paint kind of farts.
It was terribly embarrassing, especially since I was a professional dancer at the time.
And that wasn’t the worst of it, of course. There were many days I couldn't dance or enjoy other activities because my guts were knotted with cramps. Or I'd had another bout of diarrhea. Or I felt nauseous. Or I was just too exhausted.
I’m SOOO glad those days are over now.
Where did the bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea come from?
Why? Well, all of nature is blooming and growing – and the plants have the soil to thank for that.
What makes that soil good? Proper nutrients and pH, yes, but also something else. Symbiotic relationships between the microbes and fungi, and the plants! (Symbiotic refers to what is mutually beneficial)
It is the same in our gut. We have our own inner gardens of microbes to attend to so that they can help protect and nourish us. They need the right nutrients, pH and each other!
When our microbiome is balanced and healthy, it prevents pathogens from creating noxious gas in our guts, it helps us break down our food so we get the nutrients we need, it prevents inflammation and regulates our bowel movements.
This and so much more!
Stay tuned because I’m dedicating June to Nourishing a Healthy Microbiome - your own inner garden!
