Here’s the challenge:
In a 2019 global analysis, the US ranked #37 in healthcare by the World Health Organization.
Digestive issues are on the rise, affecting 60-70 million people in the US.
Mental health issues like anxiety and depression are increasingly common. These issues are directly related to the health of your digestive system.
Your digestive system is connected to your brain via the vagus nerve. And your happy hormone, serotonin, resides in the gut. These physiological connections between your gut and your brain are the reason why so many issues in mental health are related to the health of your digestive system.
In the US, 69-84% of women reported feeling unhappy with their bodies regardless of their size. Body image issues contribute not only to the development of eating disorders but to feelings of depression, low self-esteem, and obsession with body size.
THE GOOD NEWS is that all of these issues are preventable with good nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
