Bottom Line: Good Digestion is Fundamental to Help Your Child

Good Digestion

On today’s podcast, I decided to revisit the topic of digestion.  Good digestion is a fundamental piece of the puzzle impacting our children's’ health.  Understanding how digestion is supposed to work and what happens when it doesn’t work properly will give you clarity on what is contributing to or is a roadblock to making meaningful progress in your child’s healing.
The importance of good digestion is one of the first topics I wrote about when I started My Child Will Thrive.  If you have listened to today’s podcast but want a written refresher, you can review what I talked about by reading Is Poor Digestion Sabotaging Diet Efforts With Your Child and The Sabotage of Poor Digestion and How To Fix It.

in a nutshell

  • Your child’s diet may be stellar, but if their digestion is not, your efforts are being wasted.
  • Looking for the signs and symptoms of digestive dysfunction and tracking them through a journal is essential to your success.
  • Digestion is a “north to south” process—it starts in the brain and moves “south” down the body. Any dysfunction that happens further “north” will impede digestion further down the chain.
  • Picky eating can be a sign of digestive dysfunction. Look beyond taste or texture of the food—your child may be telling you something about the state of their digestion.
