Chronic Gut Inflammation increases the risk of colon cancer (2nd highest cause of cancer deaths in the US) by as much as 500% (see attached article).
Our immune /inflammatory response cells try to clean up the problems.
This process is a good thing for putting out our immediate fires. It is a different thing in its chronic state.
Pay attention to your bodies early GI signals. Ask yourself, is what you are eating causing: diarrhea, constipation, pain, bloating, heartburn and nausea? Food is meant to energize us. How do you feel after your plateful?
Keep in mind, foods we should limit, food sensitivities and food allergies are three different issues. They all contribute to gut inflammatory sores. These are at least microscopic wounds which allow our GI bacteria to enter our bloodstream. The circulating microbes/byproducts require a constant “hosing down” of the inflammation produced.
There are sensitivity tests available for foods but until then, look for constant clues
It gets a little trickier with adding fibrous foods and the gas they can produce.
We can clean up and live around an isolated incident of fire extinguishing.
We are not built to live in CO2 foam and water.
Take Care of your GI tract and Inflammation.
