Gut Health Seminar

Sunday, August 18, 2019

I just attended a week long on-line seminar about the micro-biome and gut health. It was so interesting. A lot of the information was a refresher course on things I had already read about, but there was some new information too. All of the presenters kept coming back to the gut-brain connection and the fact that many auto-immune disorders could be eliminated, or at least relieved, by knowing what we put in our mouths and how it affects our bodies.

I think the main thing I took away from it was the fact that everybody is different so there is no perfect diet for everyone. One will never achieve balance and health (as well as lose weight and keep it off) if they are still taking in things that are harmful to their body. It really is trial and error to discover what is works because what is fine for one person's system may be totally destructive for another.

Anyway, the topic was fascinating to me! The speakers were all very knowledgeable in their fields and well chosen for their diversity in their approach so it came together very well.

I definitely will be implementing several of their ideas once I get through the surgery on Friday.

    "I think the main thing I took away from it was the fact that everybody is different so there is no perfect diet for everyone."

    I think is such a KEY point! We are all different. There is no such thing as a one size fits all diet. We have to do the work to discover what supports OUR body best. It takes time, patience, and can change over time; but, it is so worth it. And, our health depends on it!
