There is a simple natural healing method to improve digestion, makes food taste ‘better’ and can help lose weight.
“Chew your food well, transforming it into a soft paste in your mouth before you swallow. This will help you digest well, so that you will feel no discomfort in your stomach or intestines afterwards, no pain or heartburn, no discomfort at all. Your body will digest and assimilate the food you ingest perfectly, using all the nutrients it contains to renew your supply of blood, muscles, energy – in short, to regenerate life”. Emile Coue de Chataignerate.
