Most people have never been taught, that they actually need to chew their food and pulverize it with their own saliva to properly digest it.
If we do NOT chew our food we risk indigestion, acid reflux, IBS, bloating, gas, weight gain, diabetes and autoimmune thyroid conditions. (Hashimotos and Graves.)
I had a client who came to see me, as she could not understand why she gained close on to 25KG in one year. That is fairly excessive I am sure you’ll agree.
As we talked it dawned on me that she was not overeating, her primary foods seemed balanced and she was otherwise in a good place. I asked her to try to focus on chewing her food.
She was very shocked at my suggestion and said, really Ayolani, at my age I think I know how to chew my food. I said, “okay, I felt the same way when I first heard this during my training, but was surprised when I actually on my chewing. So, for the next two weeks I want you to focus on chewing your food. Let me know how many times you actually chew something before swallowing it. And, let’s see if you can get to twenty-five chews per mouthful.”
I got a call from her a few days later and she told me she couldn’t believe it! She noticed that she chewed only three or four times, before swallowing.
Now what do you think that means?
That means whole pieces of un-chewed food were sliding right down her throat and loading her digestive system.
We simply can’t process food the way lions, tigers and sharks can, yet that is what most people are doing. In order to heal any digestive disorders, we NEED to start with CHEWING our food properly.
When we chew, the parotid gland releases enzymes into the mouth that combine with saliva and helps us start the process of digestion.
Over 70% of our immune system lives in our gut. If the gut is out of balance, immunity can be compromised on many levels. To support and heal autoimmune conditions, digestive problems need to be addressed.
When people begin chewing food they naturally eat less, feel more satisfied, digest food better, lose weight (if needed) and heal their body.
Chewing is the miraculous cure that most professional are not talking about. Is there any reason why that’s the case? Is it because it doesn’t cost any money to chew food which means no-one can make money from this simple step to improving gut health?
We were designed very intelligently and our bodies are made to self heal.
So no purchasing any expensive supplements or digestive enzymes. Simply chew your food to activate the digestive enzymes you are naturally born with. And the best part, chewing is absolutely FREE!
