Stoke the Digestive Fire that Nourishes and Protects
Our digestive system is an information processing highway. It creates one of the body’s amazing journeys. It takes the foods we eat and alchemically transforms them into our bodies.
It begins at our mouth. When we eat, the digestive tract is immediately exposed to the external world. Odd to think that our gut has as much exposure to the outside world as our skin does. If digestion begins in transformation, the process also includes identification – what belongs and what does not.
Our skin protects itself – and us – very well; our digestive tract does the same, and with the same kind of protective cells that shield the skin.
The job of our digestive system is twofold:
- REPLENISH. Break down the foods we eat into nutrients our body can use
- PROTECT. Participate in our immune system, keeping only what’s beneficial, sweeping what’s not to the exit door
How well we digest what we eat both determines our physical strength and influences our mental clarity. The alchemy that happens in digestion is the process of transforming food into vital nutrients, including nutrients that feed the brain.
Hundreds of years ago, Chinese doctors determined that mental clarity is influenced dramatically by digestive strength. According to ancient Chinese wisdom, this strength is determined mostly in the stomach. They refer to the stomach as a pot of 100 degree soup.
While not meant to be an exact number, it refers to the need of the digestive process for an active warmth. This warmth is necessary for the success of the alchemical transformation. The alchemy is successful when our gut takes out the minerals, vitamins, and proteins, and breaks them all down further and further into a form that the body can use. Working properly, our digestive process makes sure the materials we ingest get to the various places they need to go.
Ancient Chinese wisdom describes this process as separating the clear from the turbid.
As we age, we experience repeated stresses. Maybe our diet is not as healthy as it might be. We might have a harder time maintaining an easy, active digestive tract. Our cells forget the gut’s optimal temperature, and our digestive system becomes clogged with stagnated traffic.
Besides stagnating digestion, this traffic jam creates a kind of smog, which Classical Chinese medicine refers to as ‘Phlegm misting the mind’. Slowing digestion can create muddled thinking.
Like all our products, Tune-Up! Digestion is not chemistry-based. Rather it’s a bioenergetic, based on information imprints.
These imprints are chosen from materials especially suited to help the body overcome a particular weakness – here, to strengthen and revitalize the digestive system.
Our cells might forget their innate ability to monitor the heat in our digestive process. Tune-Up! Digestion sends its information deep within the cells along our digestive highway. Our body now starts to remember!
What our body remembers: How to stoke the digestive fire we need to nourish and protect us.
Tune-Up! Digestion is the energetic that improves digestion! It helps maintain the tone and balance of the inner workings of our digestive system. We remain sound in body and in mind! We know how to separate the clear from the turbid.
