Guidelines For High Frequency GI Health Protocol

When our life circumstances feel overwhelming or challenging, our bodies feel this stress. The GI system is one of the first bodily operations affected by heavy stress. Nowadays, the scientific community recognizes, GI stress, a disturbed microbiome, and endotoxin as the root of many diseases of the human body.

The gut is now called the second brain because of the neurons in the GI system. Before it was thought that the brain sends a signal to the gut to initiate an action like a hormone release, etc. In recent years, a switch occurred and it is now understood that the gut sends a message to the brain to initiate an action. The implications are enormous and exactly why it is important to maintain a healthy GI system. For this reason, I want to focus on developing a healthy GI system

Please note that I am oversimplifying when I say GI system. There are multiple parts like stomach, small intestine, large intestine, ascending colon, descending colon, etc. For simplicity, I am considering the GI system as a whole. The protocol that I include below considers the whole system.

I have personally used each suggestion and found the results helpful. In addition to the protocol below, please refer back to my earlier blogs about health, raising frequency, physical health, etc. as they will give even more ideas.
Remember that this is not medical advice. If you have medical questions always contact your health care provider. For any questions, please feel free to reach me at: support@selfsynthesize.com.
