Digestion Basics w/ Pam Killeen – Part 1 (June 9, 2013)

TimNoakesphotoPam and I will spend the next few shows going into detail about the digestive system and how it works, why it matters and how it impacts your health. All disease starts in the gut. At present there are over 200 autoimmune diseases that start in the gut.

Your gut is your second brain and all disease starts in the gut!

 In this series we will be discussing everything you need to know about your gut, how to heal it, the importance of your bile and why most people today have septic bile. Why our ancestors all ate one diet. The idea of “different” metabolic types and the belief we all need a special diet. We start to get under the hood of the car and look at the issues of why people believe they need different diets. We discuss why fat and cholesterol is important to digestion. How adrenal fatigue, heavy metals, antibiotics and vaccinations contribute to disease. Where your immune system is and why you need to feed your gut. So, listen in each week as we distill down the importance of digestion and your health.

Today we will be discussing the basics of digestion, stomach acidity and why this matters.

“Nearly half of all Americans over 50 lack the stomach acid to digest their food fully, let alone absorb vitamin pills. Over 90% of them don’t have too much stomach acid, but too little… And when they take supplements to increase the acid, the heartburn goes away forever.” Doctor Jonathan Weight MD

“As I mentioned before, low stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) causes many problems, including bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, lowered resistance to infection by ingested pathogens, an increase in gastric cancer susceptibility, and reduced nutrient absorption. It has the potential to underlie many other issues, including food sensitivities. The prevalence varies by age, increasing from less than 10% in the young to over 50% in the elderly.” – Low Stomach Acid and Nutrient Absorption
