13: The Dilapidated Digestive System, with TCM Dr. Lauren Curtain by Your Tea | Traditional Chinese Restoratives published on 2021-01-06T06:02:12Z “The digestive system:- what is it? - how does it function? - what importance does it hold? And does the food we eat actually matter? From a TCM perspective, the gut is the epicentre of our body. It holds immense importance - so much so that we decided to create an episode dedicated to this system. We invited TCM Dr. Lauren Curtain back on the podcast to explain this system in great detail. On this episode we discussed: > Butterflies and bloating - did you know there is a connection between our emotions and the gut? > Exercise; how overdoing it or not moving at all may be compromising your digestive system. > How your inherent constitution may affect your gut health. Perhaps you’re prone to sweating? Or cold extremities? These patterns are unique and of course, connected to the digestive system. There is no one size fits all when it comes to gut health. Oh and did you know that the digestive system is akin to a pot on a stove? Sound intriguing? Tune in to find out more.
