|Have you come across those who, however hard they workout they don’t seem to be able to move forward and make progress? This may be you…|
Did you know 90% of us have a food intolerance.
When the foods your body may not be happy with are ingested they cause inflammation to the digestive tract and can cause the corresponding part of the abdominal wall to shut down and stop these muscles from doing their job.
So if you are trying to get the job done at the gym having eaten the offending food, then your body will be compensating for the loss of stomach muscle function in other areas e.g. back muscles as these would be the closest.
The core shuts down…
As you can see from this cross section the distance from your intestine to your abdominal wall is tiny. Imagine if you cut your hand right across your palm. You really wouldn’t want to be shaking hands, squeezing anything in that hand until the cut had healed right? Same goes for your gut – until the inflammation has healed the muscles in that region will not function optimally – hence the bad back which may come and go but you can’t explain why.
So what do I do?
If you are fully in tune with your body you can eliminate the foods that are affecting you. See how you feel and move on without it in your life or in moderation. If you are simply not sure then get a food sensitivity test and that will show you from low to high which of the 93 foods tested are affecting you the most. This then gives you concrete evidence to work with to fix your gut which in turn will help restore core function – and possibly improve a bad back.
