Your great great great great great grandmother would like you to eat…

This topic itself seems sort of boring on the surface… like mildly interesting, with a “so what” aftertaste. Talking about water feels that way, but there’s nothing “so what” about water,  just go a day or 2 without it. What I’m saying is; please stick around a bit and see if we can’t turn this seemly “so what” into a “holy crap”.  

Whether it’s vitamin D, multi-vitamins, probiotics, you name it, I’m always asked “Why is this  so important NOW? People have been living without supplements and other newage treehugger garbage for thousands of years. So why should we care now?”. Creationists and evolutionists can both agree that we haven’t changed much over the last couple thousand years. What has changed drastically is what we eat.

  • Leaky Gut can cause a large number of symptoms that seem unrelated.

  • It’s hard to pinpoint that Leaky Gut is making a pre-existing condition worse, like arthritis.

  • It can be caused by a number of factors or a combination of many.

  • There is no test to specifically say that you have Leaky Gut.

  • Our actions have a LOT to do with our chances of having Leaky...
