We live in a fast paced, toxic world eating processed foods, breathing polluted air, and drinking treated water. Chemicals from factories, vehicles, and pesticides are entering our bodies at alarming rates. Each year, air pollution prematurely kills nearly 6000 Canadians and recent studies indicate almost 8% of all non-traumatic mortality in Canadian cities is due to pollution. While this may sound overwhelming there are ways to fight the over abundance of toxins that enter our bodies on a regular basis. You can regain and maintain good health regardless of your age. There is H.O.P.E.
H.O.P.E. is the basic foundation for good health and consists of four elements we need daily to ensure that the digestive system and other body functions are working at optimum levels. These 4 elements when taken daily will increase your energy, reduce the chance of chronic disease, and improve your health.
- High Fibre – Sufficient fibre intake of 30-40 grams per day is vital for good health, however the average person only consumes 10 grams. Fibre improves bowel function, optimizes nutrient absorption, gathers toxins for elimination, lowers cholesterol, and stabilizes blood sugar.
- Oils – Essential Fatty Acids are not produced by the body and must be consumed from food sources such as raw nuts, seeds, and cold water fish. EFA’s play an important role in many key functions including brain function, cellular reproduction, healthy skin and hair, hormone production, lubrication of the colon, nerve transmission, and reducing inflammation.
- Probiotics – The term probiotic means supporting life and they are beneficial bacteria that the body requires. These bacteria are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines. There are both “good” and “bad” bacteria and they must be a balance of them for good health to be possible
- Enzymes – Digestive enzymes are required to break down and utilize nutrients in food. Proper breakdown is essential for absorption of nutrients and also to ensure by-products from food are properly eliminated. When this does not occur food sits in the body and ferments, producing toxic material that enters the body through the bloodstream. These toxins cause damage to all areas of the body and are a leading cause of chronic diseases. As we age our natural enzyme production decreases and leads to declining energy, gas, bloating, heartburn, food allergies, inflammation, bone loss, indigestion, poor liver function, and poor nutrient absorption.
