This phase of the Blissful Belly program is geared towards supporting all of the digestive organs. We do so by removing the common food and lifestyle habits that can cause damage to them.
The Remove Phase focuses on reducing inflammation. We increase resiliency and decrease excessive heat in the body (also known as inflammation). Inflammation is a natural process used to fight off invaders or to heal damaged tissue.
However, when inflammation goes on for too long—or is too hot—the natural balance of the body is disrupted, and it causes problems. These problems can lead to the production of toxins (aka metabolic wastes). We call these toxins “Ama;” the medical terms are “intestinal dysbiosis” and “leaky gut.”
Gut inflammation usually refers to intestinal pathogens (ie: parasites, protozoa, bad bacteria, yeast, fungi, viruses, and worms).
How do we reduce inflammation, restore balance, and cool things off?
