One of the easiest ways to improve your health and thus begin to heal your eczema is to start chewing your foods more thoroughly. We are all busy people and we tend to eat on the go which means we are chopping and swallowing food without any thought to whether our food is being sufficiently broken down in our mouths.
However if you develop some patience and self-mastery you can totally change the way your food is digested which will result in healthier skin amongst other things. When you chew your food more of the nutrients will be absorbed by your system, which will lead to healthier skin.
When you chew your food you encourage nutrient assimilation and strengthened digestion.
One of the important aspects to remember about chewing is that when you chew your food thoroughly it is more completely and efficiently digested. When you chew carbohydrates for instance, the digestive enzyme ptyalin found in saliva begins to breakdown your food.
If food is swallowed without thorough chewing, then the pancreatic enzymes cannot continue with the digestion process. This will result in only partial absorption of nutrients and fermentation of your food. Fermentation produces excessive carbon dioxide which results in gas and bloating.
Poor chewing can also result in you feeling heavy, or having itchy skin, feeling sluggish and irritable. Chew your food to achieve these additional eczema benefits:
Additional benefits you will achieve by chewing your foods, say 30 to 40 times per mouthful include:
Thoroughly chewing your food will result in improved elimination. This will help reduce the amount of toxin and waste you tuck away as it is expelled from your system faster. Excess waste and toxin is a major cause of eczema.
Thoroughly chewing your food will result in a more balanced digestive system. When you chew your food more thoroughly you create a more alkaline condition which reduces the acid in your food before you swallow. An over acidic system is another cause of eczema.
Thoroughly chewing your food will result in you eating less food. After twenty minutes of eating your brain receives a signal to stop eating as your are satisfied. When you chew your food thoroughly this signal is sent to your brain sooner.
Thoroughly chewing your food will result in clearer thinking and healthier nervous system. By eating less and chewing more your body receives more oxygen which is very important for your nervous system. Oxygen is also used in the digestion of your food.
Finally, thoroughly chewing your foods will result in improved creativity as you become more calm whilst eating. This will result in you becoming more creative and being able to think things through.
