The Root of Your Problems – CHEW, CHEW, CHEW. The simplest therapies are often the best.

Everyone gets caught up administering remedies and therapies that provide instant gratification to their patients. Let’s face it, its easy to do. However, sometimes the simplest solution, the one requiring no drugs, or medications, is the best. It involves convincing the patient to take responsibilities for their own actions, and of modifying bad habits that are causing their health problems.

What is interesting, is that the root of a vast number of health problems, according to the work of the late Dr. F.X. Mayr, is in the digestive system. Dr. Mayr asserted that the digestive systems of many people are compromised to the point of being inefficient. Further, that the gut can be a source of dangerous toxins and funguses, that can undermine a person’s entire health. Based on my experience, I cannot agree more. And furthermore, the cure often lies with the patient.

Many factors, of course, contribute to an improperly working digestive system, however, one of the key factors is the way in which most people eat and chew their food. While most people do not chew or insalivate their food nearly enough, the startling fact is that it seems that many people do not even realize it, nor do they even know what is considered proper. Taken one step further, most cannot even begin to contemplate the long-term health ramification of improper eating habits.

Go to a restaurant and take a look around. People take huge bites, munch it once or twice and then swallow huge chunks of food. Often, the only way that they can swallow their food is to wash it down with a drink. While we all eat in a rush, or while preoccupied with other thoughts, this is wrong. Please eat slowly, taste our food, and chew properly. You will be amazed how much better you will feel after only a few months time (this is not instant gratification stuff).

We have teeth in our mouth’s to masticate food, we should use them for that purpose. A few simple facts: your stomach’s does not have teeth; therefore the digestive process should start in the mouth. We are not talking about what kind of food you are eating, but rather how you are eating that food. When food is well chewed and insalvitated, it is digested quicker, reducing the likelihood of fermentation or putrefactions inside the stomach, helping to reduce the toxic load of the body as a whole.

As your gut gets used to having smaller pieces of partially digested food (properly masticated and insalvitated) enter it, you will also find that your body becomes more efficient, requiring less food, and less digestive juices. The patient’s stomach may lose volume, and as a side effect of chewing many patients lose weight.

I strongly feel that an improperly working digestive system is a dangerous source of toxicity that can undermine people’s health, and make them prematurely old and ill.
Fact: an unhealthy digestive tract does not promote good health.

Convincing a fast eater who is ill to properly chew their food will often yield amazing results. If you encounter patients with persistent health problems, skin problems, or even allergies ask them if they eat fast. If they do (most people do) tell them to slow down, to chew their food fifty times per mouthful and amazingly many problems will disappear after a month or so of eating right.

The digestive tract can influence a person’s overall biological terrain. Why not start at the root of the problem, and prescribe proper chewing techniques. Properly masticating your food helps in maintaining good health, and to restoring a healthy terrain to those that are already ill.

Dr. Mayr’s work, plain and simply, was all about maintaining good health, and to restoring a healthy terrain to those that are already ill. The digestive tract is obviously a contributory factor to the condition of a person’s overall biological terrain. When considering a course of therapy why not prescribe proper chewing techniques, and start at the root of the problem.
