I'm smack in the middle of our summer phlegm removal protocol. I'm already on enough supplements and I was thinking about a way to improve my digestion and my elimination without having to depend on a another supplement, herb or food. Sometimes these things make your body lazy, because your body begins to depend on the substance to do the work. Once you stop taking the substance, the body goes right back to the same state it was in previously.
I learned that I have weak digestive fire and I need to make it stronger. Strong digestion is one of the first defenses in immunity. It keeps bacteria, fungi, and viruses under control. Believe it or not, candida is always present in the body. It's when there is weakness, for example weak digestion, that we are aware of candida because it gets out of control. We try to "get rid of it" by taking anti-fungals, but that is only a temporary fix. We still haven't addressed the root cause when we do that.
So I started thinking: "What activity can I do to help improve digestion?" Then the next logical question was: "What makes fire stronger?"
