Why All Disease Begins In the Gut
You may have heard or seen this quote from Hippocrates: “all disease begins in the gut” . It’s said that he used those words thousands of years ago, and current research is finding there’s much truth in this ancient piece of wisdom.
If you think your intestinal tract is only responsible for digestion and waste elimination, think again… your gut also plays a big role in immune system function, the synthesis of essential nutrients, and balancing neurotransmitters important for brain and mood health.
It’s even been referred to as our second brain by experts in the health professional community. I find this stuff fascinating!
