Getting your Digestive System on track and your Health Back
Good health and nutrition go hand in hand. The food we eat and how we supplement our diet play large roles in our health. As athletes, our bodies need adequate nutrition. When we work hard, our bodies require more nutrients than the average person.
Many of us already choose organic foods, focus on getting enough protein and make sure we take the right vitamins and minerals. We pat ourselves on the back for this, yet we may not feel as good as we could. Deep down, we know we could feel better.
Here is a question I would like you to ponder: What is the condition of your digestive system? The health of your digestive system is EXTREMELY important to your overall health. It contributes to feeling good and helps with energy levels. Some signs of possible digestive disturbances are: gas and bloating, food sensitivity, allergies, indigestion, irregular bowl movements (we should be having about 2 effortless BMs a day), decreased immunity function, autoimmune troubles, puffiness in the face, discoloration in the inside of the iris, etc. Are you getting the picture that digestive issues are highly common and affect all the systems of the body?
When your digestive system is challenged, absorption of nutrients becomes difficult. This means all the good nutrients we are putting in our bodies don't help us as much as they could. How do we heal the digestive system? Here are a few places to start:

1-Eat slowly
2-Manage your stress levels
3-Take a good probiotic
4-Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, especially if you are on a high-protein diet
5-get enough fiber in your diet
6- consider the right combinations of foods for a balanced diet
7- take supplements such as L-glutamine to protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract 
8- TAKE ALOE to soothe and regulate the digestive system, which will help with the absorption of nutrients 
9- take highly absorbable supplements (preferably liquid)
When our digestive system is healthy, other systems in the body are more likely to function at an optimal level. Health can only occur or be restored when the body can absorb the basic nutrients that we consume. When our digestive systems are functioning properly, our muscles and joints function better too.  Our hearts, nerves and brains are functioning better. Our breathing is better. Our emotional and mental health is more stable. Our endurance and stamina are better, and all of this translates into better training results.
If you are curious about a highly absorbable ALOE PRODUCT that contains many trace minerals and micro nutrients that benefit the digestive system and nourish the whole body, visit me at: 
Cheers to getting our digestion on track and our health back!

  2. What is an "effortless bowel movement"? I'm not saying that I have to strain every time or even often, but if I ever report having just had a genuinely effortless BM, chances are pretty good that I have just shat my pants and you'll smell the evidence before I even open my mouth to discuss it.

  3. Hello There,
    I just wanted to see if you were currently interested in additional guest bloggers for your blog site.
    I see that you've accepted some guest posters in the past - are there any specific guidelines you need me to follow while making submissions?
    If you're open to submissions, whom would I need to send them to?
    I'm eager to send some contributions to your blog and think that I can cover some interesting topics.
    Thanks for your time,

    1. Hello Tess,

      I don't normally have guest bloggers unless the writer is covering a topic that relates to issues I generally address in my blog: running, eating disorder recovery, women's issues and the media.

      If you like, you can send me something you have written. I prefer not to publish spam, general advertising or anything that is clearly self or product promotion.
