We are what we eat, but we are nothing if we are not able to digest and absorb any nutrient, hence the paramount importance of a healthy digestive system.
There are so many components to digestion: from your digestive tract (mouth, stomach, intestines) and your accessory organs and glands (such as your liver, pancreas, etc), to your emotional responses (as stress and the immune system are also tightly related to digestion).
It is important that all work in harmory and one of them being out of place can wreak havoc for all of the other digestive processes.
Your gut flora is also a must we need to look at. Dysbiosis or the disruption of balance of good and bad bacteria and microorganisms in yout gut can also casue issues such as Candida overgrowth, bloating, mood disorders, brain fog, immune suppressión, sugar cravings, tiredness, excess weight, eczema, food intolerances, etc.
Fiber is your digestion's best ally as it helps to feed your friendly bacteria among many other effects such as constipation, diverticulosis, diarrhea, IBS, etc. Hence why whole-foods plant based diets and their naturally high fiber content are great at keeping your gut happy.
A nutrition consultation can help you pinpoint the cause of your digestive disconfort and find a dietary pattern that suits you best. A healthy digestion can make a difference to your energy levels, immune system response, focus, and pretty much everything!
