Did you know that the lining of your small intestine rejuvenates (regenerates or replaces) itself about every seven days?
|Our Lovely Gut!|
That sounds like good news, right?
It is good news in the sense of rapid healing, if indeed, healing is taking place. That means the new enterocytes (the cells that line your entire intestinal surface area, which by the way, if laid out flat would be about the size of a tennis court) are a bit healthier than the old enterocytes they are replacing.
Unfortunately, that is a BIG ‘IF’!
IF the foods you eat every day are not genetically modified, or laden with chemicals and additives; and IF those foods are low in starches, gluten, unsaturated oils and lectins (aka ‘sticky proteins); and IF they are adequately hydrolyzed (digested) by chewing well, stomach acid, bile and pancreatic enzymes…
Well, then your millions of enterocytes have a chance at healthy, proper rejuvenation as well as assimilation (when nutrients pass through the small intestinal lining to be absorbed into the blood stream).
Why is this important anyway? And what’s the bad news?
Your intestinal lining is the defining point between longevity and degeneration, between optimal health and chronic disease, ultimately between life and death. Sounds a little sensational doesn’t it? But that is the continuum we are all on, like it or not.
The bad news is – the big IF’s (above) are not happening for most people and that underlies our nation’s poor health and the medical system’s revenues.
Big IF’s = Big Bucks!
More bad news – cells that naturally rejuvenate quickly are more susceptible to becoming cancerous than other slower reproducing cells.
Do you see why “The Digestive System” is going to be our first Health By Systems: 101 topic? There is so much to talk about and learn! Besides learning some big words (underlined above), we will learn practical tips on healing your gut and what the medical system is likely to do if you don’t.
If your enterocytes ain’t happy, ain’t nobody healthy!
So I have a ‘gut feeling’ this will be a great class!
Don’t miss it!
