As the food travels down your digestive system it reaches the last part of the small intestine where it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This is a process in which the body actively reaches out and grabs all the little bits and pieces that it needs from the ‘soup’ that is now in the lower part of your gut. The material here is very liquidy. In fact, it is in the form that you would normally experience if you’ve ever had diarrhoea. Not all of this lumpy soup can be absorbed, because to be healthy there needs to be quite a lot of indigestible fibre. This indigestible fibre gives the muscles in the small intestine something to push against and that helps the food to move through the gut. Just by way of an example, there would be very little fiber in a piece of white bread compared to a piece of wholemeal bread which would have a lot of natural roughage (another word for fibre).
Amazingly, the digestive system selects which nutrients it needs to absorb. Now, the body has many different ways of absorbing the things that it needs.  Again this is highly complex, and making the special ingredients that the body needs in order to be able to absorb these nutrients requires it to have many key nutrients in the first place. So we can very easily get into a chicken and egg situation when a lot of the food that you’re using is deficient in basic nutrition. In other words, if you are low in key nutrients, then your body has difficulty absorbing your food into your bloodstream.

Because our food is produced in such an unnatural environment today, deficiencies are becoming more and more of a problem for each of us and the need to use supplements to fill the gap is becoming increasingly important. The problem we all have is that we don’t know what supplement works best for us. When you walk into a health food store you are presented with a vast range of different foods and nutritional supplements that can be overwhelming to say the least. The good news is that there is a way to find the answer to this question. It is not difficult and requires no special equipment or training.  All you need is to understand some basic principles, and to learn how to do muscle testing, also known as Kinesiology or NHD. We will be introducing this in more detail at a later stage, but if you are interested now, do feel free to click this link and look at our free preview video. I will also be talking in detail about various vitamins and minerals over the coming weeks, and NHD will help you to make informed decisions as you unlock the keys to taking control of your own health.

In my next post, we will continue following the journey that your food takes through your digestive system and look at what happens as the food leaves the small intestine and enters the large intestine.
