Last week’s blog focused on the first step in getting your gut ready for the Christmas fun times.
We discussed how cleaning your gut of built-up waste is a slow but ultimately, hugely rewarding task. A clean gut is an efficient, effective workhorse for your body - processing and dispersing nutrients and hydration and disposing of waste material.
Cleaning your gut is a big, important topic so we’ll keep looking at it in this blog edition. Also, this is just Week 2 of getting gut ready for the Holiday period so we’re still in cleaning mode.
The mantra for removing waste from your digestive system is take your time, take it easy, take it slow.
Some harsh words
There’s always a motivation to get ‘fixed’ quick. There’s any number of big promising, fast detoxes or cleanses. They all rely on harsh actions and drastic changes.
Lee says, “I see many clients a week. And most are in a rush to treat their health. I can relate as I’m often in the same mindset of just getting better again.
I have to remind my clients (and myself) that health takes time. Patience is not only a virtue, it's a necessity for your health. This is especially so for gut health. It’s a large organ with a lot of work to do, all day, everyday.
I’m quite against fast detoxes. They just don’t work and can cause more issues than they address. I see clients who need help after putting their body and gut through a harsh detox or clean. Don’t do it!
There’s a better way and that’s time and focus.”
This month just keep the focus on cleaning your gut. Keep going on eating more fibre, drinking more water and loving your gut with diatomaceous earth and fulvic humic.
This week let’s up our gut game a little with some ideas and practices to keep the waste build-up to a minimum.
Next week’s blog will continue the cleaning the gut theme. We’ll look at massages and food ideas to help get things ‘moving’.
