As many Naturopaths are fond of stating, “All health emanates from the gut.” It is their way of acknowledging that no degree of smart nutrient intake can make a difference in our health if our ability to digest or “absorb” nutrients is absent or lacking.
The first order of business, then, is to focus especially on digestive health. We want to build up the good bacteria in our lower intestines and crowd out the bad. We want to systematically digest food stuffs by chewing thoroughly with each bite, maintain a healthy stomach pH level and take in digestive enzymes before each meal.
The “Healthy Body Digestion Pak” allows a two tier approach: it supplies all 90 nutrients essential to human health (“90 For Life”) AND includes specialty products to help the body in its ability to reclaim digestive advantage. But beside the Pak there are many wonderful tools: our proprietary herbal blends, for example, and of course the ever popular packets of Root Beer Belly. Root Beer Belly, interestingly is a fun-and-fizzy pre and pro biotic that sometimes does double duty as a choice for weight loss.
