The health of the gastrointestinal tract influences hormones, the immune system, the cardiovascular system and the brain. Inflammation in the gut contributes to inflammation in other places in the body. Everything is interconnected. When looking at dysfunctions of the Gastrointestinal Tract, it is important to find a root cause of the imbalance. Poor digestion is linked to a diet high in refined carbs, cooked foods, highly heated food and excess complete protein (meat, etc.); toxic liver, low pH (deficient minerals), heavy metal toxicity (such as mercury from silver fillings); often infection in the stomach or GI tract.
