Gut-Healing Chicken Turmeric Soup (Paleo, Keto)
This nourishing, flavorful and soothing soup is one of my favorite gut-healing recipes for overall health.
There is currently an epidemic of digestive related disorders in the US affecting more than 62 million people, at a cost of $41 billion per year.
The disturbing thing about this statistic is that most of these disorders are preventable and are the result of a poor diet, toxic exposure (including drugs and medication) and a lifestyle which negatively affects the microbiome (the body’s healthy balance of bacteria in the gut).
The condition of the gut has a profound influence on our health. It is from the healthy gut that we enjoy neurological, psychological and immunological health, since a healthy gut can digest and absorb nutrients and water from the very best organic foods. By ensuring the balance of beneficial bacteria (the microbiome) through the consumption of the right foods, we increase our immune system and improve its function.
Eating foods that are processed, laced with preservatives, or loaded with sugar encourages the growth of bad bacteria, parasites, and fungi.
Eating the right foods will optimize the health of your second brain.
These upcoming weeks I'm going to be focusing on some of these gut-healing recipes that will hopefully benefit you and your family.
This soup is one of my favorite gut-healing recipes for overall health. Consuming the right food is one of the most crucial steps to optimal functionality and it isn't a struggle when it tastes this good! Nourishing, flavorful and soothing- this soup will soon become one of your go-to recipes!
