A caller on Dr. Oz’ radio show suffers from chronic bloating. Dr. Oz’ first suggestion: “take out the high allergen foods – gluten and casein (one of the protein’s found in milk).”
I cannot stress enough how crucial it is to have a healthy colon where approximately 80% of our immune system is based!
According to Michael Rosenbaum, M.D., “In the gut, material from the outside environment literally enters the interior of our body as food and water. They can contain all manner of pathogens. Our trusty immune system is there in the gut to protect us from this outside world inside us.”
In the US, we are experiencing an epidemic rate of colon related illnesses. As many as 20% of the adult population, or one in five Americans, have symptoms of IBS, making it one of the most common disorders diagnosed by doctors. This is in addition to colon cancer and a host of other illnesses.
In many cases, symptoms may be alleviated if we eat a nutrient rich, plant strong diet!
The issue is that many of us do not want to change our eating habits until it’s too late. We may have pre-diabetes or a mild form of IBS or perhaps some extra weight, all of which may not interfere with our daily lives – at least in the short term. Ultimately and inevitably, something has to give.
The JOOS Reboot Cleanse can help you kick start sustainable healthy eating habits in a non-starvation, non-deprivation way so that you can strengthen your immune system and feel more energetic, vibrant, centered, balanced and focused.
