Okay, sorry to tread on cherished symbols of Christmas, but a day of reckoning is at hand.
It has to do with Santa. And his gut.
I write this post in April mainly because I know better than to bring this up at the height of the Christmas season. That’s when emotions are running high, and dealing with a touchy subject is not advisable.
Now is the perfect time to talk about Santa. It’s also a discussion that’s long overdue.
We’re all well aware of the fact that Santa Claus has a bit of belly. But now that I understand what Gut Dysbiosis is, and I’ve seen firsthand how it can cause belly fat and a host of other conditions, I’m firmly convinced that the man in red is suffering from it.
Ho Ho Huh? What is gut dysbiosis?
Let’s start out at square one. Let’s identify gut dysbiosis.
First, what is “dysbiosis”? Dysbiosis is an imbalance in the microbial environment of the gastrointestinal tract (GI). Inside that environment, you have trillions of bacteria and yeast, which are called flora.
This flora improves digestion, eliminates waste, helps maintain proper body chemistry and can optimize your immune status.
Basically, we use it to allow the good nutrients in, and prevent the toxic ones from going out.
Unfortunately, dramatic shifts can cause an imbalance of the flora. I have a feeling that’s what happened to Santa.
What disrupted the flora at the North Pole
The shifts in the flora can be caused by a number of things. These include medications (especially pain medications, antibiotics and antacids), infections, illnesses, food chemicals and pollutants.
For Santa, maybe it was an over-reliance on pain medication. Maybe he’d been slinging that sack of gifts over his shoulder too many years, and popping too many aspirin to help relieve the pain.
Whatever the reasons, here are a few symptoms of Gut Dysbiosis:
- Acid reflux
Does the third symptom on the list look like it might have something to do with Santa?
Okay, so much of that belly may be true adipose (fat) tissue. But I do believe Gut Dysbiosis is also contributing to his belly bloat.
As a weight loss specialist at Optimal Body Balance, I’ve seen people shed 2-14” off their belly simply by reversing the effects of Gut Dysbiosis.
Yes, those numbers are accurate 2- 14 inches off their bellies in 13 weeks or less.
Learn more, help Santa
I’ll be publishing more posts on Gut Dysbiosis through the month of April, and digging deeper into the issue.
I’ll also be hosting a free teleseminar on the subject called “Gut Dysbiosis: Don’t Trust Your Gut”. We’ll talk about the Gut Dysbiosis, the tests to determine if you have it, and how to eliminate the condition.
We’d love to have you join us. The FREE teleseminar is April 28th from 7:00 – 7:30 pm Central Time. You can register when you click here:
In the interim, please pass this along to your friend – even Santa. It will definitely land you on his nice list.
