Standard American Diet (SAD) can lead you to chronic diseases by increasing inflammation,
degrading gastrointestinal integrity, and shifting your gut flora toward unhealthy
state. Until now, we were aware that the brain activities affect digestion (e.g.
stress induced indigestion), but latest research shows that the state of our intestinal
health can affect our brain and how we feel. Yes, the communication between brain
and intestines is bi-directional.
In the upcoming seminar on 9/10 and 9/12, I’ll talk about how SAD is damaging your
digestion and making you susceptible to depression. Below is the list of how SAD
is making you sick.
Nutrient deficient due to heavy processing
Low in natural fiber content
Use of trans fat & reduced saturated fat intake
High omega 6 & low omega 3 content
Lack of fermented food choices
Antibiotic use on animals
High glycemic index food
High carbohydrate and gluten intake
