Health + Weight Loss start in the digestive system.

More than likely, your diet is making your digestive system sluggish and imbalanced.

Several metabolic issues are at the core of stubborn weight gain and plateaus. Did you know that your body can use both glucose (sugar) as well as fat as its source of fuel?

Let’s turn on your burn and get your digestive system cleaned and purring like a well tuned machine for a sustainable, healthy weight!

As a whole, your digestive system has many intricately linked parts. It’s only when one part is NOT functioning at its best that you notice!

“All disease begins in the gut,” said Hippocrates. 

Want to lose weight? Have more energy? Take less sick days?

Take care of your gut. More specifically, be mindful of the beneficial bacteria within the entire gastrointestinal tract if you’d like to be happier, healthier, and thinner. 

In fact, they outnumber your DNA 10:1,

  • balancing your hormones,
  • fighting disease and inflammation, and
  • increasing your metabolism.

It’s commonly called the gut microbiome and your “second brain.” 

You need to heal your digestive system for effortless weight loss and better health.

Your gut is intricately linked to your moods, emotions, and even habits.  Research has even highlighted that the bacteria in your gut can influence what you want to eat!

“One system that is particularly responsible for overall well-being is your digestive system — a strong, yet delicate ecosystem that controls the presence of harmful invaders and maintains digestive and overall health. To achieve this impressive feat, your GI tract relies on the presence of “good bacteria,” specialized immune cells and a complex network of neurological and hormonal components. In fact, this 30-foot long tract is a major headquarters for immunity, neurological health and more. Digestive health directly impacts your immune health, and vice versa. Your gut is also home to the largest concentration of mood-altering neurotransmitters such as serotonin.”
