eat your way to healthy skin

Our skin is built from the inside out and is dependent on being supplied the required nutrition in order to be able to produce healthy skin cells on a daily basis. While we can’t stop the ageing process, we can slow it down by giving the body the nutrients it needs.

OUR SECOND BRAIN

Functions of the gut

When we eat food it enters our gut, which runs from our mouths to our back passage (anus).  The gut has three important functions

Digest the foods we eat

Digest the foods we eat and convert them into vitamins

Absorb nutrients into the body

Absorb nutrients into the body

Prevent toxins entering our body

Prevent toxins and pathogens entering our body

MORE THAN JUST DIGESTING FOOR

70% of Our Immune System is Based in Our Gut

Did you know that 70% of our immune system is based in our gut? If we’re not feeding our bodies the best nutrition, we won’t be able to keep our bodies healthy.   


Studies are now revealing the strong link between our gut and our brains, calling the gut the “second brain.”  The gut is responsible for producing over 80% of our serotonin, known as our “happiness” molecule.  

A CHANNEL OF ELIMINATION

our skin removes toxins from our bodies

Our bodies have seven channels to eliminate toxins – the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, bowel, blood, lungs and skin being the largest one. If any of these organs, like the liver is overloaded, the toxins will be eliminated from the skin, which is how skin issues evolve.

not eating the right foods can lead to problems

Leaky Gut

This is when the barrier between your gut and your body allows substances that should stay in the gut pass through into the body. Once in the body they are able to cause inflammatory responses leading to further problems.  

Dysbiosis

Our gut contains trillions of microbes including bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. The gut contains both good and bad microbes and when these become imbalanced with the bad guys in the lead we call it dysbiosis.  

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

This is when bacteria move from the large intestines into the small intestines where they can cause a range of problems.
