That nudge, that gut feeling, can you tap into yours? What has come about for you when you followed that gut feeling?
Did you know that 70% of the lymphatic system resides in the gut? It has many roles here, such as being a first line of defence against microorganisms, which has an important role it play with the immune system, and is a a means to transport nutrients for our digestive system out to our cells.
In Ayurveda, they consider lymph to be the first tissue that is made in the body. The health of this tissue, determines the health of all the others in the body. They call it Rasa. They believe that the lymph represents the living waters in the body and that water is life and thus is sacred. From water, everything grows.
Another common sentiment in Ayurveda is that we are what we digest, (or don't digest). This includes foods, but also emotions, and energies. There is no doubt that our minds and our guts are connected in many ways and the health of our gut depends upon the health of our lymphatic system, our Rasa.
At PLANTiful, we approach gut health by including the lymphatic system in the healing process. We are crafting a series of mindful products to help you connect with and soothe your gut to bring your body back into a state of balance.
