Let’s face it. Most of us probably don’t give our digestion a second thought. We eat healthy, nourishing foods and expect our body to work its magic and make those vital nutrients available for usage in the body. We trust that our body is doing what it needs to do and we carry on with our lives. We may think that a few burps, a few farts (yes, I went there), feeling sleepy after meals, bad breath, etc., are normal and they don’t even phase us. But, those are NOT normal. They are signs of poor digestion and potentially other digestive issues.
Despite the fact that most of us don’t give digestion much thought, it is glaringly obvious that this world is full of digestive problems. A simple glance at a TV or magazine will yield countless ads for over-the-counter and prescription drugs, all geared towards making our bellies feel better? But do they really help? No. Because they don’t get to the root of the problem, which is identifying why your digestion is messed up in the first place. It is typically caused by leaky gut, but the cause of leaky gut can be anything from food allergies to heavy metals to parasites to autoimmune diseases and more. There is no single cure for digestive issues, because each an every one of is different. However, there are basic principles that will help us start healing our guts and then we can fine tune those to our own specific needs.
Do you experience any of these digestive complaints/symptoms on a regular basis?
- Belching or gas within one hour of eating
- Heartburn or acid reflux
- Bloating within one hour of eating
- Bad breath
- A sense of excess fullness after meals
- Sleep after meals
- Stomach pains of cramps

- Less than one bowel movement per day

If so, then you are suffering from some sort of digestive issue, no matter how great or small. But have no fear! You can fix it and I am PROOF that you can. Let me share my story with you.
My Personal Gut Healing Journey
In August of 2012, I started on my journey to true health. I have been sharing my story along the way, and you can read all of my “Let’s Get Personal” posts here, if you are interested. Long story short, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune thyroid disease. I really didn’t know much about it, or how to treat it, and I was not finding any answers with my MD or ND. I then turned to Lydia from Divine Health for help. I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without her help. While I am far from “fixed”, I am well on my way and looking back over the last year makes me realize just how much I have accomplished.
The first thing I learned from Lydia was the importance in proper digestion and healing the gut. Any autoimmune disease (and really, any disease) can find its root in the gut. So, to address whatever issue you are facing, you must first fix the gut. I had no idea how to do any of this, but Lydia set up a plan for us and we started taking baby steps. Now that I am over a year down the road, I can tell what a HUGE difference this focus on healing the gut has made. I very rarely have any digestive upset, no burping, no farting, no bloating, no nausea. On the rare occasion that I do experience these issues, I can easily pin-point what it was that is messing me up, so that I know what to avoid/address in the future. It’s actually quite shocking to me now that I look back on how far I’ve come. I really do/did take digestion for granted, so when I really took the time to stop and think about my progress, I was amazed at the improvement in my digestion.
The things I have learned from working with Lydia have literally changed my life and now, she is offering all of that information to you. I am excited to now be working with her as an affiliate partner and her new Heal Your Gut eCourse is designed to help you regain control of your health and get things functioning the way they were intended. It was easy for me to start working with Lydia as an affiliate partner, because I can honestly stand behind this course 100%. I am proof that this course works. I believe in Lydia and I believe in the healing that can take place when you are armed with the right knowledge. Knowledge is power, and when we are armed with the right knowledge, we will have the power to change our lives for the better.
Heal Your Gut eCourse
Who Is This Course For?
Anyone and everyone! More than 90 million Americans suffer from digestive disorders, according to the National Institutes of Health, yet very few of us know where to turn for help and information. The importance of digestive health is vastly under-appreciated in today’s medical community and society. As the very seat of our immunity, good digestive health is imperative to live a truly healthy life. Impaired digestion can trigger problems ranging from mild stomach upsets to life-threatening cancer. Millions of people suffer day in and day out not knowing just how critical healing their gut truly is. Poor digestion can be a factor in symptoms such as attention deficit disorder, arthritis, asthma, chemical sensitivities, eczema, liver problems, autoimmune conditions and mood disorders. The goal of this course is to provide comprehensive guidance for those not sure where to turn. The greatest opportunity to recovery from health ailments and to ‘heal your gut’ occurs when YOU actively participate in the healing process. With Lydia’s support I believe you will quickly be on the road to better digestion.

Great post. Most of us don’t appreciate or understand how important gut health is to our overall health. Thanks.
My husband did a total elimination diet to pinpoint some tummy troubles he had for years that were getting a lot worse. He discovered some intolerances. Not only were the tummy troubles completely eradicated, but he also took care of some problems he didn’t even know he had. He cleared a skin rash he thought was discoloration, he lost weight because he wasn’t having the inflammation he had before, his joint aches he thought was from desk work went away, and his moods leveled. Gut health is so incredibly important.
Isn’t it amazing? There are so many things that we may not even realize are going on with our bodies, but once we start focusing on gut health, we notice changes. I am hoping to help spread the word of just how important gut health is! Thanks for stopping by and sharing! 🙂
This info was shared in our Facebook group “The Road To Healthy” I hope you don’t mind and I invite you to post freely about your program in there as well. Thank you.
