Heather wanted me to share this wonderful blog post by Sajah Popham of the School of Evolutionary Herbalism about gut health. Sajah Popham is one of her teachers who has an herbalism education center in Oregon.
In this blog post, he writes and also talks in his video on how the gut to the human organism is like the roots of a tree. And looking at it from this perspective, the health of an entire organism is dependent on the digestive apparatus from the mouth to the colon. What happens when you over or under water a plant? Give it too much medicine? Sterilize an area of the body that holds much of it's own life?
He further points out how a gut issue is actually a systemic issue, that can develop deeper issues such as depression, brain fog, serious autoimmune disease, anxiety, joint pain, etc.
He gives a great description on the universe of the gut, and what happens when we over-medicate it with anti-biotics, and further provides some wonderful herbal and plant knowledge relating to the gut. Click here to find out more about the School of Evolutionary Herbalism. Enjoy!!
