Hippocrates made this statement over two thousand years ago and it is truer today than ever. “Disease begins in the gut.” We like to say as well, “Health begins in the gut.” And, in actuality, it totally DEPENDS on the gut to flourish. Our bodies are designed to heal and flourish. They are designed for optimal states not just for maintaining or survival.
Your Health and Healing Is Tied to Your Gut Health
Your gut is your second brain. It directly affects how you feel. It influences your memory, learning and decision making. People tell us all the time “its hard to concentrate and focus.” We call that brain fog. Yep, its related to your gut.
Seventy to eighty percent of your immune system is in your gut. Got infection issues? Focus on your gut health.
Have low energy and motivation? Yep – focus on your gut. Ninety percentage of the “feel good” neurotransmitter serotonin is located in the gut. Many people are significantly deficient in serotonin due to gut issues and antibiotic usage. Serotonin is responsible for regulating things in your body like mood, appetite and sleep.
You NEED a healthy gut. We can not say that enough.
Well-meaning people have taught you bowel programs and practices post injury based on a premise of wanting to help you with your “quality of life” yet not realizing how involved your gut is with your overall health. They also don’t believe that your gut can heal after injury. It can. It needs a different approach.
You do need to take matters into your own hands and IGNITE Your Inner Health Warrior. We are here to help you do that.
Part of the equation is how you think about your gut and gut health and how you approach food.
Food: defined as any nourishing substance that is eaten, drunk, or otherwise taken into the body to sustain life, provide energy, and promote growth. But here at Amplified Agility, we think of it as so much more. Here, it is referred to as the fuel for life.
Fuel for Life
Be honest: Are you fueling for life according to your optimal, extraordinary goals for your recovery or to create an amazing life? Or, are you fueling for mediocre, sedentary results?
When given the proper tools and ingredients, the body is capable of healing itself in amazing ways. But to do this, it requires more than just the basic nutrients that sustain day-to-day living. No, for this job, your body requires optimal “goods” to create an internal environment conducive to repair, rebuild, and regeneration as well as natural health and vitality.
Whether you need to reduce or eliminate secondary health conditions related to your spinal cord injury, improve your overall health, take your spinal cord injury recovery to the next level, or have the natural health and vitality to create an amazing next chapter in your life, upping your gut health and nutrition know-how and practice will lead the way. In fact, it is paramount to your overall success.
We know that the extreme circumstances and big body goals of our clients require more than status-quo foods that do the bare minimum. But we also know that making the best choices can be difficult and, at times, an afterthought. That’s why we have developed a webinar “master class”, plus an educational program and coaching curriculum that focuses on what your gut needs most to aid you in optimal recovery and health. At the same time you can ENJOY healthy, delicious food!
