Last Chance—The Digestion Sessions with the Real Food and Paleo Summit

Oh my gosh—These digestion sessions have been amazing!!!  The most exciting thing is that if you decide to order the all access pass–you also get the Paleo and Real Food summit  for free!!!!  I’m ordering today—There were so many good sessions and great points that even though I was taking notes, 48 hours still wasn’t enough to get all the information.

For instance—-I always thought that the reason that people who had bariatric surgery lost weight because they take in fewer calories—-well that is only part of the reason!  The majority of the reason is that the gut hormones get stimulated and the intestinal flora change .  Yes–the bacteria in your gut can make you fat–so can that reflux medication.

Don’t miss this!!!

 

You can ORDER HERE before time runs out!

I lied yesterday —-the actual sessions don’t begin until sunday so you still have time!!!!  I’m registered and I listened to the preview podcast today on the Underground Wellness site and I’m pretty stoked now.  I realize it’s a little nerdy to get so excited about gas, poop, reflux and farts but remember–this is a huge issue we all suffer from!!!  Any info we can get to help ourselves is amazing.  This series is cutting edge and the average health practitioner will take about 17 years for this new info to become common knowledge.  That’s why we are getting it first!!  We deserve this free knowledge.

You can either Register for Free now for the event starting sunday –you will have 48 hours to listen to all four interviews or

The Digestion Sessions

 

Did you know that sixty-percent of the Unites States population alone is dealing with at least one symptom of digestive dysfunction?

You name it — gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal pain, candida, constipation, diarrhea — the statistics say that YOU are more than likely experiencing one or more of them, right now at this very moment.

Living with digestive problems has become the new normal. Typically, they begin as minor complaints — a little indigestion here and there, the occasional tummy ache or bout of heartburn.

Sooner or later, what was once a minor annoyance becomes something that can literally take over your life. This usually happens for two reasons — embarrassment and ignorance.

Let me explain.

Let’s be honest, no one goes out of their way to talk about their digestive problems. What happens on the other side of the bathroom door has become the most taboo of topics, a private matter requiring the utmost discretion.

Unfortunately, there is no “bathroom therapist” office to sit in safety and speak freely about your bowel issues. Instead, you keep it to yourself and hope it will all go away with time.

It doesn’t.

And that’s when you find yourself in the doctor’s office, finally revealing every detail of what you’ve been going through for months, maybe years.

At some point during this cathartic act of courage you realize that you’ve used up all 12 minutes of your allotted appointment time and suddenly find yourself in the pharmacy with a prescription for a drug that comes with two pages of side effects.

No exam. No testing. No investigation whatsoever into what may be causing your symptoms.

Just ignorance in the form of a pill.

What now?

THAT is the very question hundreds of millions of people worldwide are asking about their digestive problems.

Today, I’ve come with the answer.

The truth is that “modern day” medicine has fallen as much as 17 years behind the latest research. In other words, almost two decades will pass before your doctor recommends what actually works.

Chances are, your doc is unaware of the growing number of research studies demonstrating these alarming findings:

– The toxicity of persistent constipation may cause common, everyday symptoms like fatigue, attention deficit, and brain fog.

– Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are almost always rooted in digestive dysfunction.

– The inflammation from gut dysfunction can spread throughout the body, causing inflammation in the brain, joints, and other important organs.

By the way, inflammation in the gut may also shut down your body’s ability to burn fat. Not good.

Most doctors are either unaware of this information or don’t care to know. Meanwhile, people like you are paying the price in unnecessary suffering and medical bills.

This has to stop. Now.

And that’s why our friend Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness — a real life health crusader — put together a FREE online event called The Digestion Sessions, featuring 25 on-camera expert interviews and gut-healing cooking classes on all things digestion — so you can get the answers you’ve been looking for. Without the 17-year wait.

Here’s a sneak peak…

* Dr. Daniel Kalish reveals the hidden stomach infection that causes heartburn and reflux — 50% of us have it but don’t know it!
* Christa Orecchio outlines a step-by-step program that kicks candida for good.

Thanks Debbie for this great recipe:

 

Here is a recipe that I used Gluten-Free Pasta to make. I’m still not sure exactly what has gluten in it, so I don’t want to say this is totally gluten-free, but it should be close. I’ve tried this recipe before with regular Ziti & it was also good. Takes very little time to make. o Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta (elbow). I boiled it for 2 min. & then let it sit covered for 18 min. like the recipe said, but I think it sat for a little too long. I’m going to try 15 min. next time. o 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil o 1/2 cup sour cream (I used light) o 24 oz. jar pasta sauce 2 4 oz. cans mushroom pieces, drained 1 8 oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese, divided Optional: 3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed (I did not use) Once I made it without meat & once I put in about 3/4 of a big smoked sausage link, thinly sliced it & sautéed for a couple of minutes to brown it. It was just enough to taste, but wasn’t overpowering. 1) Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cook pasta to pkg. directions. Drain & return to pot. 2) Heat oil in skillet over Med-Hi heat. Add meat & cook until no longer pink in center. Combine meat, if using, with pasta, sour cream, sauce & mushrooms. 3) Pour 1/2 of pasta mixture in 2 qt. baking dish or 8×8 baking pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Pour remaining mixture on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. 4) Bake 25 to 30 minutes until heated through.
