Digestive Health Guidelines
Chew your food until it is a liquid.
It does not matter if that is five chews or fifty chews;
it must become a liquid before you swallow it as your
digestive tract has no teeth. Undigested foods are
a major source of inflammation within the body.
Chew your liquids. Most liquids
are carbohydrate and must first digest in the mouth;
otherwise they can beat up your digestive system all the
way through while losing the nutritional benefits and
causing inflammation throughout your body thereby
leading to degenerative diseases.
Use appropriate digestive enzymes
with meal if needed. (Salt craving can indicate low
hydrochloric acid production.)
Let others talk while you eat.
If eating alone, close your eyes and thoroughly enjoy
the flavors and textures of the foods.
Eliminate or greatly reduce sweets.
Imagine your stomach and upper
abdomen smiling inside on a regular basis.
Sit and do gentle abdominal breathing
for five minutes after eating. (This increases
digestion and reduces stress.)
