In our continuing series on know thy body, today we will dig deeper on the digestive system. This is the most critical part of our anatomy because it process all the food we eat. This is also where our immunity is located. With our poor eating habits, this is where much of our health abuse happen. Especially in the gut and colon. The gut is also directly connected to the brain by a neuron circuit. This is why we talk about “my gut feeling” to mean what we strongly think and feel yet we do not think with the gut

The beginning of good health is a clean gut and especially the colon. We need to take steps to ensure our colon is clean. When last did you do a colon cleanse? Or do you do regular a detox to help push out the stuff that get stuck on your colon?
It is good to do a thorough colon cleanse like hydrotherapy when you are adopting a healthy lifestyle and then do regular detox like juice fast for 7 to 14 days every 3 months but the best way to a clean gut / colon is to eat the proper diet
Here are some tips that we can immediately start with in our lifestyle adjustment and behavior change journey.

• Eat a high-fiber diet with lots of raw vegetables.
• Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
• Avoid eating red meat and any processed meats. These are linked to colon cancer.
• Consider taking daily probiotics to create a more diverse bacterial environment in your colon.
• Include plenty of variety in your diet. Eating a variety of foods makes a difference in colon health.
Focus on fueling your body with a variety of foods rich in fiber, calcium, and vitamin D. These foods will help keep your colon healthy.

Types of fiber
There are two types of fiber: water-soluble and water-insoluble. Soluble fiber absorbs water during digestion, increasing stool size. Foods containing water-soluble fiber are sometimes called “roughage” and include:
• high-fiber fruits, such as pears, avocados, and blackberries
• vegetables
• legumes
• barley
• oats and oat bran
Insoluble fiber remains unchanged during digestion helping move food through the intestines normally. This kind of fiber can be found in:
• Fruits with edible skin or seeds
• Vegetables
• whole-grain breads, pastas, and crackers
• Bulgar wheat
• stone ground corn meal
• cereals
• bran
• rolled oats
• brown rice
