How on Earth is Food Not Medicine?

In Nutritionist Notebook by Sharan Malhi

A holistic view of the human body recognizes that its function is affected by a variety of factors, both internal and external, such as food, drink, exercise, emotions, stress, and so on. –Anne Marie Colbin, Food And Healing

Did you that 95% of your body’s serotonin receptors are not found in the brain, but in the enterochromaffin cells in the gut?

Serotonin is responsible for happiness & mood, cognitive function, & digestion.

  • Wonder what the antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are then doing to gut health & bacterial dysbiosis?
  • Did you also know that the gut sends messages more often than the brain sends messages to the gut? That’s how important it is! The brain listens to the gut!
  • Did you know that the vast majority of your immune system is harbored within your gut lining?

If you are feeling emotionally distraught, stressed, curious as to why you are constantly sick or not feeling well, then check your diet. The secret to your physical AND mental wellbeing is in the food & digestive tract. Leaky gut causes mental cloudiness, depression, anxiety as well as eventual chronic and preventable diseases.

Things that should only have two ingredients now have 15-most of which are completely unnecessary and add to the toxin load in your body. For centuries, cultures around the world have detoxed with herbs & enemas. We have forgotten how to heal our bodies naturally. Processed meat, food & even traumatic memories can get trapped in our digestive tract. Many patients are able to pinpoint new memories, emotions or personality quirks that weren’t present before their respective organ transplants.

Your body holds onto what you eat and experience.

Organs hold onto your life essence. Not only that, but heavy metals, pesticides and other toxins found in food block your sixth sense and spiritual antenna to the multidimensional world.

You’re separated from your higher self due to your choices and aren’t even aware.

Be kind to yourself. Eat whole foods.

How on earth is food not medicine? It is impossible that it is not.

Everything you put into your mouth is absorbed from your stomach and small intestines and into your bloodstream to be exposed to your sensitive system.

Your body is not a trash can. It is a temple and thou shalt not litter.
