It’s been hard to miss the glaring headlines lately warning us of salmonella-ridden peanut butter. People in over 19 states have been affected, and recall notices replace many peanut products on grocery store shelves.
But the problems with America’s inner workings go way beyond today’s tainted peanut butter and meats, or the contaminated spinach of years past. Food maladies are definitely on the rise, pathogens are bombarding us—and we’re fighting them off around the family dinner table. Now more than ever, we need a plan of action to defend our bodies against gut-wrenching woes.
I think it is high time we take a look at the forgotten foundational building blocks of healing.
I call them Mother Nature’s GI “miracle” helpers:
Hydrochloric Acid (HCl), the good stomach acid, is the body’s front line of defense against hostile gas-producing bacteria and parasites. Low levels of HCl make us more susceptible to infections from the toxins and pathogens we ingest in food and water. One to two tablets daily of HCL+2 with protein-based meals will insure digestion and help trigger pancreatic enzyme production.
Probiotics, the good bacteria, inhabit the walls of the small intestine and colon, fortifying them and making it harder for pathogenic bugs to take root. One to two teaspoons a day of Flora-Key which now contains the gas-fighting L. plantarum flora—is recommended on a daily basis. Mild enough for children and infants, this dairy-free probiotic alternative doubles as a natural sweetener in no-heat recipes.
Digestive Enzymes are the best catalysts for food absorption that speed the breakdown of food into carbohydrates, proteins, and fat with their amalyse, protease, and lipase content. One to three tablets per meal of Inf-Zyme Forte will help with digestion, and taking between meals will help to tamp down inflammatory conditions. This product has also been used to clean up arterial plaque between meals—three tablets, three times per day.
These GI Good Guys are all critical to smooth digestive functioning and to defend the body against pathogens and superbugs like MRSA, H. pylori, Salmonella, E. coli and listeria.
Digestive wellbeing opens the door to enhanced immunity, soaring personal energy and trouble-free digestion. Since we’ve all had days when GI woes have left us sick, tired and bloated without knowing the culprit, fortifying our digestive systems with HCL, probiotics, and enzymes may be just the permanent fix we’ve all been looking for!
