Improve Your Digestion. Improve Your Life!

Say Goodbye to Gas, Bloating, Heartburn and Indigestion

It’s NOT “you are what you eat”-- but rather --“you are what your body absorbs”

Just because you ate it – doesn’t mean your body absorbed it!

If you’re struggling with:

  • Bloating

  • Gas

  • Indigestion

  • Heartburn

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Reflux

It’s a signal that your digestive system isn’t functioning properly which means all the good nutrients in your meals, and in the vitamins you are taking...are NOT being completely absorbed and utilized!

How do you expect to strengthen your body if you’re digestive system is in turmoil?

Did you know…

  • Your body needs both enzymes and hydrochloric acid (HCL) to digest your food?

  • As you get older, your body produces less digestive enzymes and (HCL)?

  • Stress reduces the enzymes and HCL in your stomach?

Don’t believe the commercials!

Commercial advertisers want us to believe that heartburn, indigestion and reflux are a result of too much acid in the stomach.  This is how they get us to buy more antacids and drugs that inhibit acid production.

The FACTS are these and other symptoms are a result of too little acid in the stomach.  HCL (acid) is very important in the digestive process.  It also plays a major role in other functions.  It is needed to:

  •  Break down protein. If there is not enough HCL, protein will NOT be broken down and digested.  This undigested protein begins to putrefy and rot in the stomach.  It is this putrefied acid that irritates our digestive system and esophagus!  This problem has been compounded by the popularity of high protein diets.

  • Properly assimilate many vitamins and minerals.  If we do not have enough HCL, many nutrients will NOT be absorbed such as calcium, magnesium, and B vitamins, which are needed to produce energy.  This is important because poor absorption could be the main reason you are not getting healthier from all the supplements you are taking 

  • Purify and kill-off any bacteria, virus parasite or fungus that can enter our body from the foods we eat.  If the stomach does not produce enough acid, it allows these foreign invaders to enter our body and cause other problems.  More than 50 percent of your immune system is found in your digestive system!

  • Release digestive enzymes. The acid in our stomach is needed to trigger the release of other enzymes that aid in digestion.  This also helps neutralize the acid in our system and prevents us from becoming too acidic. Osteoporosis, candida, parasites and cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment.  

It is important to remember that acid is not the enemy!  It is a critical component in the digestive process. So, why would you take an antacid or some acid reducing drug?  Yes, these medications can reduce the symptoms…but they interfere with the absorption of all your nutrients, which is a problem in itself, But they do NOTHING to treat the cause!

Getting the FACTS…

When you are stressed, always on the go, in that “fight or flight” mode...your body will NOT produce sufficient HCL.  Think about it...when you are running from a bear, do you think your body is worried about digesting food?

NO!  The body operates on two completely different systems.  One is the ‘fight of flight’ mode.  The other is called the “Resting/Digesting” mode.  They don’t operate at the same time.  When one is ‘on’ the other is ‘off.’  So, how can you expect your body to produce enough digestive enzymes and HCL to digest a meal...when you are constantly on the go, eating on the run, in that “fight or flight” mode?

It doesn’t happen...so don’t fall for the advertising that says the problem is a result of too much acid.  We recommend Digest Plus, a combination of digestive enzyme, combined with HCL, to help ease digestive difficulties.

The Stress Connection...tying it all together!

There are two underlying reasons why digestive difficulties are always part of our ARS Healthy Steps Program, and need to be addressed at the onset.

We’ve already learned that when you are under stress you make less digestive enzymes and HCL.  But did you know that all that cortisol you are producing from all the stress in your life is eroding your intestinal lining. This makes your digestive system more vulnerable to food allergies, yeast, fungus, candida and parasite overgrowth. 

These problems also contribute to all the digestive difficulties!

Secondly, all the irritation and inflammation going on in the digestive system triggers the adrenal glands to produce more cortisol.  Cortisol works as an anti-inflammatory and is needed to reduce all the inflammation coming from your intestinal system. This causes an additional burden on the adrenal glands, which contribute to adrenal fatigue and exhaustion.

It’s that ‘vicious’ cycle that needs to be addressed.

How to overcome your digestive problems…

Begin with Digest Plus™, a specially formulated 2-phase digestive enzyme. Phase one begins working in the stomach as it breaks down proteins. Phase two continues to work in your small intestine to break down fats and carbohydrates.

FYI...If you’ve had your gallbladder removed, you definitely need the Digest Plus, which also contains ox bile, which is needed to help emulsify the fats in your meal.   Without a gallbladder, it is more difficult to break down fats.  This is not a problem if you don’t eat very many fats in your meal.  But the inability to properly breakdown fats could be why you are having digestive difficulties.

  • Reduce the amount of fluids with each meal…you should only drink a few ounces with each meal.

  • Take your time to eat.  Don’t eat on the run.  Enjoy the meal.

  • Food allergies could also be a major contributor to your digestive problems.  STAY AWAY (for a couple of weeks) all; dairy, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, peanuts, coffee, MSG and artificial sweeteners.

  • Follow good “food combining” principles.

 These simple steps are outlined in our ARS Instruction sheet.
