The gut is the powerhouse of the body and with so much talk about the importance of good gut health, I thought I’d share with you an excerpt from my book ‘Understanding The Divine Gut – How To Eat Your Way To Ultimate Digestive Health’.

Chapter 7 is particularly interesting right now and is often commented on by our customers who enjoy a browse with their coffee or lunch here at my GoVegan Deli in Noosa.

If this resonates with you, take a look at the offer I’ve got for you right now.

The Gut Is The Powerhouse Of The Body

It is said that the gut is the body’s second brain and I can attest to this.  Over the years of my chronic digestive condition I came to know it well.  I now show it a degree of respect for its intelligence that I never contemplated possible.  Most people don’t and I put this down to a very poor level of ‘self-connectedness’.  In other words when you are not ‘in touch’, the mind will choose to fill the body with poisonous food as if out of some desire to self-harm – a sort of Munchausen by Proxy disease – you deliberately harm the body you reside in.

Hippocrates made this statement over two thousand years ago and it is truer today than ever.

I have proved my body has not succumbed because I am not taking the following into my body:

1. Flesh from beef, lamb, pig or fish

2. Dairy based products such as cheese, milk, cream and yogurt

3. Wheat based products such as bread, croissants, bagels, pasta or grains, fruit cake

4. Anything containing white refined sugar

5. White, brown rice or grains

6. Eggs

7. Lipitor – Cholesterol imbalance.

8. Nexium – Stomach acid management.

9. Actos – Type 2 Diabetes, sugar management.

10. Tenormin, Atenolol Beta Blockers for blood pressure

11. Avodart for enlarged prostate

12. Alcohol

I have personally proved that my body thrives on and enjoys:

• All greens, reds, yellows and white vegetables – kale has five times more protein by volume than cow meat.

• High protein plant powder in the form of hemp and hemp seed – five to eight times more protein by volume than cow meat and infinitely better for the environment. Beetroot, carrot, kale, spinach and leafy greens!

• Locally sourced nuts such as macadamia, pecan and almonds – all contain proteins and life supporting oils.

• Avocado – a potent plant food in its own right and full of EFAs and life supporting oils.

Fresh Papaya, Powder & Leaf from Scott Mathias• Other functional fruit and vegetable delivered in a concentrated way such as green papaya powder that balances gut function and promotes hyper absorption. Papaya powder was in fact the precursor to my quest for knowledge on the subject of digestion. It helped to balance my digestive function, take the stress out of the digestive function, as the proteolytic nature of the papaya enzyme called papain sets to work on breaking down both plant and animal protein. It is a gem of a fruit. Green papaya is high in papain and lower in sugars whilst a ripe pawpaw or papaya is high in sugars and lower in papain. It helped me heal myself.

Kale is by far the most nutritious of all leafy greens and by far my absolute favourite. It is also number two behind garlic in the antioxidant stakes. The seven reasons below as to why it is such an important ‘now-food’ may just shed some new light onto the nutritional benefits of this most beautiful green vegetable.

1. Anti-inflammatory

Inflammation is the number one cause of arthritis, heart disease and a number of autoimmune diseases, and is triggered by the consumption of animal products. Kale is an incredibly effective anti-inflammatory food, potentially preventing and even reversing these illnesses.

kale2. Iron:

Despite the myth that vegetarians are anaemic, the number of nonvegetarians with iron-deficiencies is on the rise. Per calorie, kale has more iron than beef.

3. Calcium:

Dairy and beef both contain calcium, but Australia and the US still have some of the highest rates of bone loss and osteoporosis in the world. Kale contains more calcium per calorie than milk (90 grams per serving) and is also better absorbed by the body than dairy.

4. Fibre:

Like protein, fibre is a macronutrient, which means we need it every day. But many Australians don’t eat nearly enough and the deficiency is linked to heart disease, digestive disorders and cancer. Protein rich foods, like meat, contain little to no beneficial fibre. One serving of kale not only contains 5 percent of the recommended daily intake of fibre, but it also provides 2 grams of protein. Fibre is required to remove ‘bad’ bacteria from the body.

5. Omega fatty acids:

Healthy fats play an important role in our health, unlike the saturated fats in meat. A serving of kale contains 121 mg of omega-3 fatty acids and 92.4 mg of omega-6 fatty acids.

6. Immunity:

Superbugs and bacteria are a serious risk to our health. Many of these come as a result of factory farm meat, eggs and dairy products. Kale is an incredibly rich source of immune boosting carotenoid and flavonoid antioxidants, as well as vitamins A and C.

7. Sustainability:

Kale grows to maturity in 55 to 60 days versus a cow raised for beef for an average of 18 to 24 months. Kale can grow in most climates and is relatively easy to grow at home or on a farm. To raise one kilo of beef requires 16 kilos of grain, 11 times as much fossil fuel and more than 3000 litres of water.

I laugh my heart out sometimes when I see silly wee things emerge from online media about people suffering from seemingly ‘uncontrollable’ conditions like flatulence or farting.

Check this warning out from an American Federal office to one of its workers who just had to ‘let rip’, much to consternation and seeming odorous discomfort of his work colleagues.

Farting Letter

You know yourself that you can ‘creep’ a ‘sneaky’ out and go totally undetected. But when you sneak one out and its odour fills your immediate and the ambient space around you, it’s cause for embarrassment if the ‘leak detection’ process leads back to the source – YOU !!

We fart in excess of 14 times a day says the article on this poor fella although personally I don’t count, but will start from today to see if I fit the norm.

There is a solution to excessive farting and that solution begins in the gut. The gas emitting from the lower extremities of the body is a crude form of vegetable and animal methane produced as a result of a dysfunctional gut. Get the gut function back to normal and other symptoms usually associated with farting such as bloating, digestive discomfort and reflux, totally disappear.

Green Papaya for digestive issues

I used Green Papaya Powder which I now process here in Australia. This is a pesticide free Papaya containing the highest levels of Papain – the enzyme which helps to break down food, taking the stress out of the digestive metabolism and setting gut function back into a state of balance. Let me say categorically that this stuff helped heal me of chronic digestive  issues. I also began eating the food my body enjoyed metabolising foregoing ALL meat, dairy, wheat, sugar and processed food. You don’t have to be this extreme but it sure as ‘Freddy fart’ helps your body function in a healthy and balanced way.

Happy healthy ways lead to a happy healthy gut and no more excessive ‘Freddies’ !!

I‘m a Digestive Health Specialist and Author living in beautiful Noosa, Australia and teaching globally.  As I approach 60, my journey to excellent health began when I sought and found natural means to heal myself of a chronic digestive disorder.   I founded iLifeFoods.com, a 100% pure Australian Digestive Health and Hemp Protein Company, and then proceeded to further change my lifestyle to support my ongoing excellent health by learning to prepare and serve the most amazing RAW food. I am also the Author of ‘Understanding The Divine Gut’.  Do join me in knowing more. I am here to help you find your personal freedom.

It’s that time of the year when most folk are inundated with invites to office holiday parties, works’ nights out, big family gatherings, extensive traveling and, while it’s an exciting time of the year, some wonder just how they will get through the amount of food and drink consumed in the lead up to and during their respective festivals. This is when the most damage is done to the digestive system bringing about accelerated heart rates, increased levels of blood pressure, anxiety, stress, bloating and gut pain. It takes days if not weeks to recover, but the damage has been done.  So let me help you with some tips on how to cope.

Christmas Dinner
Christmas Dinner

Here’s what generally happens.  Large amounts of unprocessed protein usually in the form of meat, poultry and fish remains in the intestinal tract and starts to rot within hours of consumption. The whole digestive and nutritional absorption process is placed under so much pressure, the entire body goes into a state of shock. That’s just the food. What about large amounts of alcohol and sugar based sweets from desserts to festive chocolate containing large amounts of high GI white refined sugar?  I think you already know what happens.

So be prepared for what is about to occur and give your body a helping hand.  Green Papaya Powder helps to break down proteins and eases stress on the digestive metabolism and need only be taken after eating food (lunch and dinner) or as required.  VegeShot sachets are fabulous for getting rid of hangovers and quickly re-balancing the bio-system. The combination of both will have you raring to go again in no time.  You’ll be comforted to know that these amazing all-natural products will prevent your system being backed-up and be keeping your tummy very happy as you munch your way through Gran’s Brandy-soaked Christmas Cake.

But don’t take my word for it… watch this short video (34 secs) and hear how Kira reacted after her lovely Mum sent her some of these products when she recently moved out of the family home and began living independently.

To ensure you don’t injure yourself irreparably, here’s my gift to you…  during Christmas and New Year period… I’ll pay the Postage anywhere in Australia and will charge a very low FLAT RATE of just $10 to anywhere in the world if you order these or other products through the scottmathiasraw.com iLifefoods product pages. CLICK HERE OR ON THE AD IMAGE to go straight to my products page. We will be shipping throughout the holiday season.

I genuinely want to see you survive this festive season and go on to enjoy the new year and I cannot recommend strongly enough the benefits your entire body will experience by being prepared. Here’s a lasting piece of advice too. How about not over-stuffing with all the festive sweets and savories this year and do your life a favour.  By cutting your serving sizes by 50% you will not go hungry and still have fun but without the everlasting side effects.  Believe me, you won’t regret your choice.

As an added bonus I would like also to give you FREE access to my new ebook entitled ‘Understanding The Divine Gut – How To Eat Your Way To Ultimate Digestive Health’.  Go ahead… start your year knowing more about maintaining good health than you did before.  Here is the LINK to CLICK.
