Did you know that nearly 90% of disease in the body goes back to gut health? In order to have great health, and consequently great skin, you need to start with strengthening your gut flora! In this episode of The Beauty Shaman, I start a six part series with Julie Pelaez and Jo Schaalman who together wrote The Conscious Cleanse: Lose weight, heal your body and transform your life in 14 days. To buy the book, click here. Today, Julez and I begin discussing gut health and offer some basic information to work on this important aspect of your overall wellbeing.
The Conscious Cleanse is a fantastic way to remove the allergens that could be causing many of the physical ailments you may be suffering from. Those allergens include: dairy, sugar, alcohol, gluten, and caffeine. It can be uncomfortable to remove these things from your daily routine, but that only lasts for a few days. After you detox from them, you will begin to have more energy, mental clarity, and even weight loss if you were holding excess pounds. As you remove these problem items, you replace them with healthy foods like cruciferous vegetables and probiotics. Julez recommends Megafood Probiotics to encourage a diverse growth of good bacteria in the gut.
Grow Your Own
Did you know you could grow your own kefir and ferment your own vegetables? Both of these are fantastic methods to help strengthen your good gut flora, and easy to do at home. Julez suggested Cultures for Health to make kefir, yogurt, fermented vegetables, kombucha, sourdough, and Tempeh and Soy. Click here for their website. She also recommends tuning into what your body needs and responds well to, and to maximize natural organic ingredients in your diet.
