Did you know that 80% of your immune system lives in and around your digestive system?
This is why if you have an unhealthy, toxic digestive system you are far more likely to have immune problems like allergies,
frequent colds, ‘flu’s or even autoimmune diseases. That is why we start all our comprehensive detox programs by treating the gut first!
How do ‘bad bugs’ affect the digestive system? Your digestive system contains billions of microorganisms. If things are in balance and are healthy, most of these ‘bugs’ will be beneficial bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy.If your digestive system has been affected by stress, poor diet, alcohol, coffee, the pill, or antibiotic prescriptions etc, you will have lost some of those ‘good bugs’ and may have an overgrowth of ‘bad bugs’. ‘Bad bugs’(bacteria, yeasts and parasites) can invade your digestive tract causing digestive upsets and toxicity.
These ‘bad bugs’ can produce toxins that are absorbed into the bloodstream, and may also damage the lining of your digestive system. Any damage to the digestive lining can affect your nutrient absorption, immune function and overall health. The damage to the lining of the digestive tract caused by this overgrowth of bacteria may also cause more toxins to leech into your body, causing symptoms such as recurrent headaches, recurrent infections, poor memory and concentration, and muscle aches. It, therefore, makes sense that we remove these ‘bad bugs’ and heal your digestive system to get you back to feeling fabulous!
