Slide 5 Basic Optimal Health Principles 1.Feeding and nourishing your bodys systems 2.Cleansing and removing toxins from your body 2 Slide 6 1. Colon 2. Small Intestines 3. Liver 4. Lymphatic System 5. Circulatory System Connecting The Body Systems Slide 7 The Digestive System Where the nutrients & many toxins are absorbed in our bodiesWhere the nutrients & many toxins are absorbed in our bodies Learn how the Digestive System worksLearn how the Digestive System works Slide 8 Digestion The process by which food and drink are broken down so the body can build cells and provide energy Step One Feeding and Nourishing the Body Systems Feeding and Nourishing the Body Systems We chew the food, digestion starts in the mouth. We chew the food, digestion starts in the mouth. As we chew the food, the body produces enzymes to assist in the digestion process.

Slide 9 Digestion Food moves down into the stomach where further digestion occurs The stomach is the only acidic organ in the bodyThe stomach is the only acidic organ in the body The stomach breaks the food down & turns it into an isotonic liquid-state called CHYMEThe stomach breaks the food down & turns it into an isotonic liquid-state called CHYME Step Two Slide 10 This chyme moves down into the small intestine, for further digestion and absorption. The small intestine is about 21 ft. long & 1.5 inches in diameterThe small intestine is about 21 ft. long & 1.5 inches in diameter The small intestine is where most of the nutrient absorption takes placeThe small intestine is where most of the nutrient absorption takes place Digestion Step Three Slide 11 Absorption Inside the small intestine are thousands of finger-like structures called VILLI, that increase the surface area for nutrient absorption. This extended surface area add up to about 200 square meters (about the surface area of a tennis court). This extended surface area add up to about 200 square meters (about the surface area of a tennis court). Slide 12 Folds In Small Intestine Villi Inner lining, where absorption occurs Outer layer Slide 13 Every thing that is absorbed through the VILLI (nutrients, medications, chemicals & toxins) enters the blood stream and lymphatics, and is then carried & distributed throughout the body. Every thing that is absorbed through the VILLI (nutrients, medications, chemicals & toxins) enters the blood stream and lymphatics, and is then carried & distributed throughout the body. Distribution of Nutrients and Toxins Nutrients and Toxins Absorption Slide 14 The unused food passes into the large intestine (colon) The colon should eliminate the unused foods and toxins from our bodies 2 to 3 times each day, and reabsorb the water that is released in digestive juices.The colon should eliminate the unused foods and toxins from our bodies 2 to 3 times each day, and reabsorb the water that is released in digestive juices. Did you know? The large intestine is about 5 ft. long and 2.5 inches in diameterDid you know? The large intestine is about 5 ft. long and 2.5 inches in diameter Digestion Step Four Slide 15 The production of toxic chemicals produced by the colon bacteria, and the continuous diffusion of these toxins into the colon and ultimately the blood stream, may result in possible damage to the colon as well as distant sites in the body. Our Digestive Tract is subjected to toxins AUTOINTOXICATION Slide 16 THE COLON The Western diet is full of white flour, meat, milk, sugar and processed and fast foods. The Western diet is full of white flour, meat, milk, sugar and processed and fast foods. As a result, many people are exposed to waste build up in their colons contributing to autointoxication. As a result, many people are exposed to waste build up in their colons contributing to autointoxication. Slide 17 Blood carries toxins to the liver... How Our Body Handles Toxins The liver filters blood coming from the digestive tract. The liver filters blood coming from the digestive tract. Excessive years of toxic exposure may impair the function and efficiency of the liver. Excessive years of toxic exposure may impair the function and efficiency of the liver. If the liver becomes impaired, the toxin produced by autointoxication may also affect the lymphatic system. If the liver becomes impaired, the toxin produced by autointoxication may also affect the lymphatic system. Slide 18 Lymphatic System Two Main Functions: 1.Protects us from infection (viruses, bacteria, fungi) and tumors 2.Cleans up waste products Slide 19 Runs along side of the circulatory system. It has no pump: fluid is moved passively during muscle contraction. Lymphatic System Slide 20 When functioning correctly, the lymphatic system will dump its waste products into the colon where it is excreted. When functioning correctly, the lymphatic system will dump its waste products into the colon where it is excreted. However, when the colon and liver are not working to full capacity, the lymphatic system may release wastes into the bloodstream where it may settle into organs and tissues. However, when the colon and liver are not working to full capacity, the lymphatic system may release wastes into the bloodstream where it may settle into organs and tissues. Lymphatic System Slide 21 Transport nutrients from intestinal absorption and carries oxygen from lungs to all cells and tissues of the body.Transport nutrients from intestinal absorption and carries oxygen from lungs to all cells and tissues of the body. Brings wastes from all cells and tissues to the kidneys for excretion.Brings wastes from all cells and tissues to the kidneys for excretion. Circulatory System The transport system for your blood (heart, arteries, veins and capillaries). Slide 22 All of your body systems must be functioning properly to achieve optimal health. All of your body systems must be functioning properly to achieve optimal health. Compromise any of our bodys systems and we: Compromise any of our bodys systems and we: Dont function properly Dont function properly Dont feel well Dont feel well Compromise our capacity for optimal health Compromise our capacity for optimal health Did You Know? Slide 23 What is Wrong with the Current Western Diet? Wrong Foods - excessive fats, sugars, processed; NOT enough: fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, berries, nuts, plant proteins NOT enough: fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, berries, nuts, plant proteins Wrong Amounts - portions are often 3-4 times the normal size Wrong Time - eating large meals at dinner, just before sleep, skipping breakfasts, rushing lunch, etc. Slide 24 Foods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the Body Donut White Flour - When mixed with water makes paste. Donuts have little to no fiber and have large amounts of sugar. TYPICAL WESTERN DIET Hydrogenated Oils -The food industry uses this process to prolong the shelf life of foods. This industrial fat or hydrogenated oil contributes to heart disease, inflammation and impairs cell function. Sugars - Destroy B-Vitamins. B-Vitamins feed our nervous system and help keep us calm. Also, excess sugars can bind to proteins, cell membranes and even DNA significantly impairing function. Coffee provides excess caffeine, may destroy friendly bacteria, and is nutrient depleted. Coffee Slide 25 French Fries Cheese Burger More white flour which makes paste. Processed cheese is made with hydrogenated oils and high in saturated fat and salt. Ground beef- high in saturated fat, may contain antibiotics and other chemicals. Potatoes fried in more hydrogenated oil, high in salt, low in nutrients. White potatoes rapidly raise blood sugar levels. Cola, Sodas Phosphoric acid in sodas can leach out the calcium in our bodies. High in sugars, devoid of nutrients. TYPICAL WESTERN DIET Foods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the Body Slide 26 Ice Cream Canned Foods Pasteurized Milk Loaded with salt, may contain preservatives, less nutritious than fresh or frozen foods. Use canned foods mostly for emergencies (power failures, natural disasters, etc.). High in saturated fat, sugar. May contain many chemicals. Eat sparingly and in small amounts. Calcium from milk is not easily absorbed. Whole milk is high in saturated fat. Excess dairy products may promote inflammation. Cookies More white flour, hydrogenated oil and sugar. TYPICAL WESTERN DIET Foods / Ingredients and Their Effect on the Body Slide 27 What To Avoid Or Limit Limit animal protein, high in saturated fat Limit animal protein, high in saturated fat Limit refined carbohydrates, sodas, saturated and trans fats, etc. Limit refined carbohydrates,
