Welcome to Gut Healing Rainbow Week throughout 3rd – 7th July 2017.
The concept being that in order to increase the amount of variety and volume of good bacteria in our guts we need to eat a rainbow of good quality fruit and veg, amongst other things. The saying goes we should be ‘eating the rainbow’. This will allow us to be able to improve gut health and ultimately remove the awful symptoms that come with it such as bloating, gas, fatigue, constipation etc.
Did you know that the cells in our guts are being replaced every 4-5 days and built from the foods we eat?
To ensure optimal health (which is what we deserve and can totally have) we need to be managing our stress levels, getting quality sleep, eating enough protein and good fats, being hydrated, removing processed foods, artificial sugars, alcohol and tobacco and getting plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise. Oh and laughing, a lot! Being present, grounded and happy.
“Every year we’re learning more about the way naturally-occurring substances influence metabolic pathways and gene expression, as well as how these compounds interact with the huge number of microbes in our guts on which we depend for long-term health”. Alliance for Natural Health International.
Every day this week will be a new colour of the rainbow showing a Gut Healing drink, the recipe, an array of health benefits from the ingredients, LIVE Q&A on Thursday at 6pm BST/ 1pm EST and some hilarious footage of me trying to make these drinks and getting caught up in my vegetable patch. If you are interested in improving your health naturally then come and join hundreds of others on the FB page.
