Like an elastic tube, the human digestive tract runs through our body from the mouth to the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum. The tasks of the intestine usually include the breakdown of food and the absorption of nutrients and water, as well as the excretion of food waste and toxins. These organs also have another important function: Defense. Eighty percent of our immune system is located in the digestive tract and it not only defends our body against all harmful substances and microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses or parasites, but also eliminates damaged cells that the body produces daily.
Natural, healthy intestinal flora plays an important role in intestinal health. The bacteria enter into symbiosis with the intestine, train the immune system, prevent the settlement of pathogenic germs, and produce crucial vitamins such as vitamin K, biotin and folic acid. The recognition that our immune system dictates whether we become ill or stay healthy puts a balanced digestive system in a completely new light.
A healthy intestine, comparable to the roots of a tree, is the starting point of a powerful, vital organism and forms the base of a healthy body. Many of our foods today are denatured, low in fiber and contaminated with pesticides and heavy metals. Digestive disorders such as constipation, diarrhea, flatulence and heartburn, often caused by poor nutrition, environmental toxins, lack of exercise and by medication, have become a major epidemic.
Stool that remains too long in the digestive system tends to ferment and rot, leading to an increase in harmful bacteria, fungi and other toxins. This creeping auto-intoxication (self-poisoning) affects millions of people without them knowing it.
The intestine becomes a huge source of infection, strains the kidneys, liver and metabolism, weakens the immune system and therefore encourages the development of such chronic diseases as allergies, skin disorders, rheumatic diseases, migraines and chronic headaches, susceptibility to infections, and much more. The famed Swiss physician Paracelsus once said: "Death sits in the intestine." He knew even then the importance of this organ!
Based on these findings, a completely new therapeutic approach in the holistic sense opens up for intestinal health. Rather than fight pathogens with antibiotics, suppress allergies with cortisone, and treat rheumatism with painkillers, consider as a first step the rehabilitation of the intestine accompanied by an individually tailored diet.
- Intestinal disorders
- Allergies (e.g. asthma, hay fever)
- Skin diseases (e.g. neurodermatitis and psoriasis)
- Rheumatic illnesses
- Impaired immune system
- Headaches and migraines
- Susceptibility to colds
- Sinus infections
Intestinal detox and repair consists of a cleansing and the regeneration of the natural, healthy gut bacteria.
A healthy intestine is the base for a healthy body!
