More Than a Gut Feeling
It’s been said that “the road to health is paved with good intestines”! Discover just how much your well-being depends
on having a healthy digestive system.
Modern medicine continues to advance at a rapid rate. Medical research is regularly revealing fresh information about the human body and the diseases and infections that plague it, and new medications and vaccines are developed accordingly.
Why then are so many people still so terribly sick? Why are there more cases – not less – of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, allergies, depression, anxiety and other illnesses?
These are questions that Dr Russell Ing has pondered for quite some time.
“It didn’t take me long after becoming a General Practitioner 18-years ago, to become disillusioned with conventional medicine and what it offers”, he says. “I could see that many people just weren’t getting better despite being given the best medical treatments available. As a result of several experiences in my personal and professional life, I had to look for answers beyond what I was taught in Medical School, and that’s when I discovered the powerful impact that lifestyle medicine has on our wellbeing”, he says.
Dr Ing believes that today’s busy lifestyle has contributed to the increase in sickness, as people tend to exercise less and eat unhealthier foods.
“Time is a challenge for most people and often the things that save us time are not the best for our bodies. The idea of changing lifestyle can just seem too hard. Plus we’re also looking for a quick fix; we live in a society where it’s all about instant results and we expect our health to respond the same way. However the reality is that if we’ve lived a certain way for many years, it may take time to undo that damage”.
So, is it possible to improve our health and wellbeing by altering our lifestyle?
“Absolutely! There are many simple and affordable changes that we can make to every day life that will have a profound impact on our energy, vitality and thinking”, Dr Ing says. “Without a doubt, the top diseases we are suffering as a society, are a result of our lifestyle and there are ways to both overcome and prevent them”, he says.
