Nutritional Cleansing for Improved Digestive Health

Nutritional Cleansing for Improved Digestive Health

A properly functioning digestive tract is one of your body’s first lines of defense against invaders and a healthy immune system.  In a healthy colon there are, on average, anywhere from 100 billion to 1,000 billion beneficial microflora per milliliter (about 1/5 of a teaspoon) that literally consume harmful bacteria and other invaders.  In the typical American, because of poor diet and neglect of the colon, the beneficial bacteria count may be as low as 4 or 5 per milliliter.  Many researchers now believe that declining levels of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract may actually mark the onset of chronic degenerative disease and a suppressed immune system.  Join Caroline Alexander, certified Body Ecology Coach on Tuesday evening, August 28, 2012 to learn:
How to incorporate healing and cleansing foods into your diet How to take responsibility for your health with a few simple tweaks to your current health regime How to build your immunity and increase your absorption
We will be sharing samples of cultured foods and beverages that will assist you on your successful health journey!

    Excellent session. The speaker was spectacular and gave practical information reinforcing the whole concept of you are what you eat. Probiotics are one of the most important part of our lives. Will drink more Kabucha
