An estimated 70 Million U.S. residents suffer from some type of digestive disease. Nausea, Vomiting, heartburn, constipation, bloating, these are all things people dread to deal with on a frequent basis. So what is a healthy gut and how can we avoid or heal from gastrointestinal issues?
A healthy gut is one that contains immune cells and healthy bacteria that ward off invasive bacteria, fungi, and viruses which seek to make us sick or cause disease. Recent research is showing more links to autoimmune diseases, arthritis, and diabetes from a healthy gut. What we put into our bodies has the power to heal and to harm. If we are able to nurture ourselves with healthy, organic and nutritious foods we are much less likely to suffer from diseases stemming from gut imbalance. The food that we eat is essentially broken down into nutrients that is supplied to our blood, which nourishes our entire body. One of the oldest therapies in the world, cupping, is referred to as “cleaning the blood” in traditional Chinese medicine and almost every ancient culture in the world had some form of cupping they used treat stagnation and disease in the body. After cupping treatments many attest to the excretion of toxins from the body as well as relief from skin ailments, congestion in certain organs, and   release of restrictions in muscle fiber.
