Hippocrates once said "all disease starts in the gut". Over 2000 years later, his words still ring true. The health of our digestive system is directly related to the health of every other system of our body. Digestive illnesses are at almost epidemic proportions in North America and there is not one chronic health issue that does not have a component of digestive disturbance associated with it. So, it goes without saying that if we can create and nurture a healthy digestive system, we can promote and maintain a state of optimal health.
Hormones are special chemical messengers that are created by our endocrine glands (hypothalamus, thyroid/parathyroid, ovaries, testes, pancreas, adrenal, pituitary and pineal) and control just about every single function of the body. Everything from hunger to reproduction to even emotions and moods are controlled by hormones.
