Step Two – Heal the Gut with a Functional Medicine Anaylsis
Experiencing the benefits of good food choices requires a healthy lining of the tissue in your gastro-intestinal (GI) tract.
Your GI tract is a dynamic, tube-like, internal system consisting of your esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, small intestine, large intestine and colon designed for the purpose of receiving food, breaking it down into bio-available components, absorbing and/or manufacturing nutrients to refuel the body and eliminating waste.
The length and surface area of the human GI tact is enormous. The length of the small intestine is approximately 22 1/2 feet and the large intestine is about 6 feet in length. The surface area of the small intestine is 25 square meters or the size of a tennis court covered with villi and microvilli designed for maximum interface with digestive material for optimal absorption.
Assaults to the lining of the gut can result in inflammation (leaky gut) and malabsorption that leads to disease.
In Step Two, we equip your gut with the nutrients you need to fully digest your food and the nutrients to heal the tissue.Sign-up For My Monthly Newsletter -> CLICK HERE
