The secret to getting a better gut feeling

The Good Life Letter 

7th February 2016

There are those who feel I’ve let my standards slip of late.

It has been commented that my disquiet with all things Big Pharma and Big Food Con have made me lose sight of the bigger picture (eh! How much bigger can it be?).

More importantly it’s just making me angry and that could be having a detrimental effect on my health... in deference to my daughter...I mean the concerned members of the public who have contacted me... all right so mostly my daughter who is fed up of dodging screwed up newspapers hurled across the breakfast table... I want to concentrate on a Nobel prize winner.

In fact it is the story of a Russian scientist called Dr Elie Metchnikoff who won the prize in 1908 for his research into ageing.

I can tell you are all agog... but let me enlighten you about our dear doctor – the man was definitely onto something that has major significance to our modern lives.

For it was he who coined the phrase "Death begins in the colon", not a particularly catchy saying I’ll grant you, but by the end of today's letter you’ll be thanking him for it.

You see, he believed that ageing and premature death was as a result of toxic build up in the colon and regularly self treated with fermented milk products in an attempt to increase the levels of lactic acid.

By doing so he felt he would improve his digestive function and promote a healthier state.

This is often cited as a reason to indulge in probiotic yoghurt drinks, however, as pleasing as these little pots are there is no evidence that they do anything of value in your gut. Metchnikoff's ideas though do have a much more powerful resonance, let me explain.

Control digestive upsets, supercharge your digestive tract and enjoy more of the foods you love

The real reason why a deep clean is no bad idea

There’s no getting around it, if you want to live a long and healthy life, the most important thing you can do is make SURE you have a clean and healthy colon.  Have you ever wondered if your body is as clean on the inside as it is on the outside?

Even an old toad like me spends time in the bathroom scrubbing and polishing my various nooks and crannies every day, but do we ever stop to think about how we are faring beneath the skin.

We British don't consider matters alimentary as being much above comedy value, however, our French cousins are committed to the science of the derriere.

Now I'm not suggesting that we come over a bit Gillan McKeith and begin to set up enema parties over the summer but I do think a bit of consideration for the old waste system would be well placed.

You see, we need a healthy colon to ensure our well being for other reasons than just purely waste disposal. The entire digestive system is vital to life, but the large bowel has some additional benefits we don’t always realise are there.

It is all down to the colonies of bacteria, fungi and protozoa who co-exist with us... and without whom we would die.

Living in harmony with us are billions of tiny creatures who inhabit our lower recesses, and these little helpers allow us to get the most out of our food, produce important vitamins and enzymes and help us fight infections.

If we allow a toxic environment to persist in the gut we prevent these chaps from doing their best to help us, and that is really biting off the hand that feeds us.

An imbalance in your inner environment has been shown to be the primary cause of:

  • Flatulence
  • Heartburn
  • Reflux
  • Slow digestion
  • Bloating
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Chronic intestinal infections
  • Colitis
  • Discomfort after a large meal.

These are the issues you would guess would result from a digestive tract in difficulty, but new research is showing that even conditions like Fibromyalgia, asthma and even eczema are being caused by gut problems.

Isn’t it time you gave your gut the chance for a ‘Tour De France?’

As I mentioned before us Brits aren’t quite as ‘au fait’ with the workings of our digestive systems as our friends over the way.

So, I would like to introduce you to a very effective and very French method for improving your gut function – Propargile.

This combines some of the finest natural health products available to dramatically improve your inner workings.

  • Propolis; This is Mother Nature's own disinfectant.  Produced by bees for disinfecting the hive before the queen lays her eggs, it produces an anaesthetic which is more powerful than cocaine (without the side effects).  This offers significant relief to heartburn and colitis sufferers.
  • Pollen; Often derided because of the impact it has on hay fever sufferers, pollen actually has significant health properties: it is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and prebiotics providing intestinal well-being.  Tonic and stimulating, it also has a purifying effect and when taken orally like this it does not stimulate the immune response.
  • Clay; Taken internally, clay acts as a powerful magnet for all waste product in the digestive system (the stomach, the colon and the liver). It contributes to what the French rather poetically call "excellent evacuation"!  By eliminating dead cells and activating the growth of new, healthy ones the gut is regulated and rejuvenated.
So even if you’ve just done the full January detox, or even completed the dreaded dry January maybe you should begin the ‘February Flush Out’ and make it part of what keeps your body completely on song for the rest of the year.

Are you doing enough for your hidden corners?

Yours, as always
