Emotional Health and Illnesses

It is a known fact that stress increases gut motility and fluid secretion. Studies have shown that stress has a huge impact on your gut, even as much as food does.

The major factors that cause this are poor self practices and early life childhood trauma.

“Have you ever sometimes felt your stomach “tied up in knots” during a stressful event?”

This can also represent itself as diarrhoea, bloating or even worse digestive conditions like irritable bowel symptoms (IBS).

These are true signs that our emotions are intrinsically linked to our mind and body.

Did you know?

That 70% of our immunity lives in our gut?  This means that there is a direct correlation between the majoriity of our illnesses and the health of our gut.

For example, let’s take a look at Autoimmune Disesases.  It is a condition where our immune system, mistakenly attacks our own body,

Normally our immune system can deferenciate between bacteria and viruses that need to be attacked to maintain health and balance.

However, in case of an autoimmune disease, the opposite can occur.

There are many contributing studies alerting to the fact that our typical Western diet is suspected to be one of the major causes in developing an autoimmune disease.  When our diet is filed with high fat, high sugar and processed foods, the body creates inflammation to protect itself.

There are more than 100 different types of autoimmune diseases.

Here are 10 of the most common ones:

1. Type 1 diabetes
2. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
3. Psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis
4. Inflammatory bowel disease
5. Graves’ disease
6. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
7. Celiac disease
8. Vitiligo
9. Asthma
10. Alopecia

Sadly, when our gut is not functioning correctly, most of us want to reach for a pill, a quick fix that will immediately solve our problem.

However, a “pill for every ill“, is rarely an effective solution.
