It is easy to ignore the importance of healthy digestion. The industrialized food diet most commonly consumed today is very difficult to digest. Processed sugars, dairy products, excessive omega-6 fatty acids, flour and other processed grains are especially irritating to the human digestive tract, resulting in chronic inflammation, poor microfloral balance, reduced immune function, and nutrient mal-absorption. If a significant portion of our diet includes these pro-inflammatory foods, it will hinder nutrient absorption even when we intend to eat healthier foods. The liver, gall bladder, pancreas, and other organs become burdened and over-worked. Transitioning to a Mediterranean diet along with periodic cleansing and specific whole food supplimentation can return your digestion back to a natural balance. With improved digestion, treatment of other nutritional deficiences is much more effective.
