Gut-Brain Connection

  • Chances are, at some point in your life you’ve noticed the connection between your brain and your gut. If you’ve ever felt queasy as you walked into an uncomfortable situation or based a life decision based on a “gut feeling,” then you know that sometimes our bodies react faster than our minds. Most of us have also experienced the same phenomenon in reverse, where our mental state has affected our digestive system—like the butterflies in our stomach before an important meeting or a first date.
  • Understanding your Gut-Brain connection offers a better view into this working of your gut & brain, showing the full impact of how the brain, gut, and microbiome—the community of microorganisms that live inside the digestive tract—communicate, when this communication channel is out of order, major health problems can crop up, including food sensitivities and allergies, digestive disorders, obesity, depression, anxiety, and fatigue.
  • The Gut-Brain connection helps you understand how, with a few simple changes to your diet and lifestyle, you can enjoy a happier mindset, enhanced immunity, a decreased risk of developing neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and even lose weight, also paying attention to the gut-brain balance is the key to unlocking vibrant health.

    Toxic Colon

    Toxic Colon Overview;

  • 80% of your excess weight is just waste product lodged in your colon and gut. That includes toxins, negative bacteria, impacted matter, putrefying matter, excess poo mucus, parasites, dead tissue etc. This waste product slows down your metabolism by blocking your colon walls. When your colon walls are blocked you cannot have the correct absorption of water and it can be impossible to get the correct elimination of bad stuff like sugar, processed food, and alcohol out of your system as quickly as it comes in. So, it creates a lot of toxins, mucus and poop that slows down your metabolism by blocking your colon lining and when your metabolism slows down, this feeds your fat cells.

  • Not only do these waste products feed your fat cells, but they also disrupt your body’s natural rhythms like blood pressure, blood sugar, mobility, energy levels, body health, skin health, sleep, state of mind. Remember fat is not the culprit it is the end-product.

  • When you have a healthy digestive system, your metabolism is generating enough energy to move all your waste out of the colon and out of your gut. When you have an unhealthy digestive system your colon walls are blocked with toxins, mucus impacted poo, parasites, and dead cell tissue. Your metabolism does not generate enough energy to move all these waste products out of your colon and gut, so, some of the waste is kept on within your colon lining as excess waste and keeps accumulating, making a perfect environment for diseases to flourish.

  • So;
      1. Why are you overweight or obese?
      2. Why are you constantly tired?
      3. Why is your blood pressure/ blood sugar and toxicity levels high?
      4. Why is your energy low?
      5. Why is your mood low?
      6. Why is you brain function slow? (brain fog)
      7. Why is your mobility slow?
      8. Why is your skin breaking out?
      9. Why are you not healthy?
      10. Why is your outlook on life low, slow, negative, and gloomy?
      11. When was the last time you had a good bowel movement?
  • 80% of your immune cells (system) reside in your gut. That is the guards that kill off pathogens, viruses, and bacteria out of your system. Here is how you will be able to lose all that unwanted material out of your colon:

    Fasting Phase 1

    There are several ways one can follow to detox the system:

    • Water Fasting;
    • Dry fasting; 
    • Intermittent fasting.
  • Fasting involves eating no food for a chosen number of hours at a time. People following this cleanse regime need to get guidance from a practitioner who knows and understands how this works.
  • Fasting does something that cannot be explained by human language. You become aware of just how habitual the act of eating has become. Many of us do not eat for hunger, we eat for pleasure. Absence of constant pleasure exposes you to the emotions you mask with your habits and that finally exposes you to who you truly are. This is where the healing process starts, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALY, and SPIRITUALLY (Yada)
  • Fasting is the number one tool that has helped a lot of people overcome diseases, lose weight, detox, and reset their bodies to be able to keep diseases at bay. When you fast, the metabolic rate increases and the body switches fuel sources. So instead of burning food for energy it burns the stored food which is your fats.
  • The hunger hormone ghrelin comes in in waves, at times where the body has been conditioned to eat e.g. lunch or dinner time. It goes high to a certain point and if you don’t eat it goes back to base line. Your body is not shutting down hunger is not rising.
  • Fasting keeps your metabolic rate high and corrects the hunger signaling, that way you can keep weight off long term. This has been practiced for thousands of years, it not a fad diet or something new.
  • The new England Journal of medicine published that there is a significant increase in lifespan if you restrict calories.
  • Women should not worry about hormonal imbalances when fasting. The main hormone at work here is insulin it goes up if you eat and down if you do not. All the other hormones are not affected by fasting. The way to go about is to do it slowly, start by fasting 12hours, then one day a week until you can handle up to 28 days of fasting.
  • Water fasting- People who have chosen to follow this diet plan can have water or herbal teas, during the fasting period. This can be done for up to 28 days, anytime over 21 days we advise that you should be guided by a practitioner.
  • People should return to normal eating patterns on the non-fasting days. Eating in this manner reduces a person’s total calorie intake but does not limit the specific foods that the individual consumes.
  • A 24-hour fast can be challenging, and it may cause fatigue, headaches, or irritability. Many people find that these effects become less extreme over time as the body adjusts to this new pattern of eating. People may benefit from trying a 12-hour or 16-hour fast before transitioning to the 24-hour fast.
  • Many of the health benefits of intermittent fasting are not simply the result of reduced free radical production or weight loss. Instead intermittent fasting elicits evolutionary traits embedded in our cells. It improves glucose regulation, increases stress resistance, and suppresses inflammation.
  • During fasting cells activate pathways that enhance intrinsic defences against oxidative and metabolic stress.
  • Intermittent fasting allows you to change the metabolic pathways in the body (metabolic switching) where the body uses fat deposits during fasting period.
  • When we consume three meals and snacks all day, we are clogging the system and we need that famine period to start unclogging and cleaning the system.

    There are three main strategies

    1.  Alternate day fasting
    2.  Time restricted fasting
    3.  Intermittent fasting

    As long as the body is given a break so it can retrieve, clean, unclog and use fat stores. This results in

    *increased DNA repair,

    *increased protein quality control,

    *rebuilding the mitochondria

    *reduction of inflammation

    *extends lifes-pan

    These pathways are suppressed in people who over-eat and are sedentary.

    Book yourself a colon cleanse to enhance your fast and help the body release old waste.
