Your Body, Your home.
You have a lot to be grateful for! There are 37.2 trillion cells hard at work in your body and a hundred trillion microbes which play a big part in your health and vitality! There are also 10 systems comprised of precious organs and tissues that work together to promote your well-being.
These systems are in nearly constant activity and we rely on them to carry out various functions day after day, such as absorbing nutrients from food, fighting off infections, and eliminating toxins from the body.
Genetics Predispose us to certain diseases but are not the cause
Despite the wonderful things these 10 systems do to keep us alive, they are vulnerable to certain things we may be exposed to in the context of our life. Certain environmental inputs can cause disturbances in the way these systems function, either directly or by causing nutrient deficiencies. When one or more of these systems no longer works as it should due to one or more environmental influences, we experience health problems.
In recent years, research has revealed that environmental factors are the main driver of disease. Caldwell Esselstyn said it best: Your genetics hold the gun, environment pulls the trigger. Luckily, we have control over some of these environmental inputs and this is a strong reason to take action and make the necessary changes so we can be healthy and happy.
A Holistic Nutritionist helps people identify the environmental inputs that are causing their health complaints. To identify the systems affected and find the root cause of the issue, they think about the body as a complex whole. This is required because the body systems are connected and depend on one another to function. Did you know an imbalance in the digestive system can affect all the other systems? This is why people with digestive issues often report anxiety, depression, metabolic issues, hormonal imbalances, and even skin problems.
