We are all aware of the fact that eating the right foods is important to good health and clear skin but the manner in which we chew those foods are important.
Often we are in a rush going to many places and doing many things so we have the habit of doing a couple of chews, then we swallow. This is not good for our digestive tract. You can improve your overall well being and help clear up any skin problems like eczema by properly chewing your foods. You need to chew your food thirty to forty times in order to help your body receive all the nutrients necessary to maintain your health. Your immune system needs nutrients in order to fight off diseases naturally. A good immune system helps prevent you from having to take medications because of catching colds. The chewing of your food can help you to have good health, prevent disease, and increase the ability of your immune system to work effectively.
Your intestine collects foods that are not chewed properly and the food will start to ferment causing additional illness. The way you chew your food will determine the right balance of enzymes, water and other secretions, which help with your elimination of waste materials. Your appetite lessens if you chew an average of thirty to forty times which signals the brain that you have had enough to eat. When your brain knows that you have had enough to eat then you will be able to control your weight. Many times those who are overweight having a problem sticking to a diet only need to chew their food more often.
When we are growing up our moms usually tell us to chew our food thoroughly and we naturally assume as an adult that we are experts on eating and chewing when in reality we have lost our momentum because of our hectic schedules. This is not an uncommon process that many of us follow as we grow older and get more involved in daily activities. The best thing to do is rethink your chew pattern and work on developing a constant pattern that is healthier and you can stick to it making your health much better. You should know that chewing your food enough times and in the proper way helps to promote clearer thinking and healthier nervous system. The more times you chew your food the more oxygen is let into your system.
The proper method to chew your food is not only the thirty to forty times but chew from side to side not on one selective side. Rotate the food in your mouth chewing properly will help your intestine to digest your food. Your teeth have different angles just like a good chopper so by rotating your food from side to side you are able to cut it down into smaller more digestible pieces. That is why you not only should chew your food enough times but in the proper method.
