Klaus-Dietrich  Runow - Thoughtful Intestines


The latest findings on possibly the most significant organ in the body

It is incredible what happens in our gastro-intestinal tract over a lifetime. Some 30 tons of food, 50,000 liters of liquid, many kilograms of toxins and environmental poisons, pathogens, and bacteria have journeyed through the intestines of a 75-year-old.

Yet this organ is still not given enough attention, even though it is of central significance for our health and well-being. Our immune system and metabolic processes are very strongly connected with the condition of our bowels! Who would think that, for example, chronic infections, allergies, sleep disturbances, depression, and joint conditions could have their causes in the intestines? And a lingering toxicity originating in the intestines can create problems for the entire metabolic system.
