I'd like to share with you some ideas, info and hope for the days ahead.
For example, did you know that our gut is also home to 70-80% of our immune system?!
That means our gut health plays a pivotal role in our immune health - we want to doing everything we can to support digestion and nourish our organs so we have a strong immune system.
So let’s look at two important areas we need to attend to:
1) Our gut is responsible for getting nutrients in and toxins out. We need a properly functioning digestive system to make FULL use of the food that we ARE eating, as well as get rid of by-products/poisons so our energy and immune systems aren’t depleted more than necessary.
2) Our gut is also home to billions of beneficial bacteria that are meant to protect the lining of our gastrointestinal lining (preventing "leaky gut") and also to trigger and train the antibodies involved in our immune responses!
I'll keep posting articles here on my website, but the best way to stay up to date is to join my It Takes Guts Community Learning & Support Group private facebook group.
Or, if you prefer email, you can always send me a note that you'd like to receive regular emails and I'll put you on my list where I send out only 1 to 2 essential information emails a week.
Be EXTRA kind to yourself and others at this time.... and remember, hope and kindness are contagious too!
With love for you, your gut, your immune system and the overall wellbeing of this world,
