What Causes a Big, Hard stomach? – "Doc Talks" with Dr. NuzumReading Time: 3 minutes
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: Where does the big gut come from? Particularly gentlemen with the big old, we call them a “beer belly.” Ladies will get a big abdomen sometimes like that too. And here’s the thing to think about…
Liver and liver hormone metabolism has a lot to do with this. And what it is, is the liver being toxic, it uses estrogen to bind up some things.
And so, what happens is, it starts converting adrenal hormones into estrogen, female hormones, like progesterone, into estrogen, and then testosterone into estrogen.
And so, when this happens, it enables our gut to start expanding. And we start holding more fat in our organs and in our torso when this happens.
If you can imagine, as the liver hormone metabolism gets “gunked up” with all this estrogen that’s being produced, it causes fat to be stored in our torso; so in our organs, in our abdomen, our liver.
When that happens, it also reduces our metabolic rate, because estrogen and thyroid are antagonists. They don’t play well together. So, if one goes up, the other one goes down.
On the flip side, here’s the other side of this whole big tummy deal. Your colon; your colon is a four-inch round tube, that’s anywhere from 8 to 10 feet long, typically. Think of how much you could fit into that. You could fit a lot of stuff in there, right?
Our colon has the capacity to expand four times that four-inch round diameter, and that’s the kind of space you can have in your abdomen, and that’s the kind of space that can get taken up by an impacted colon.
As we accumulate toxins in our gut, and as waste accumulates in our gut, there’s a secondary issue that starts to happen. We start getting candida overgrowth. Candida is a fungus that starts to overgrow in our gut. When that happens, we get something similar to the fermentation process of bread rising. As the yeast causes the bread to rise, our abdomen will rise.
Another thing that accompanies all this is parasites. We get parasitic infections in the colon then when there is a lot of waste there.
I get asked all the time, “Doc how often should my bowels move?” My answer to that is “How often do you eat?” Keep that in your mind. If you’re eating, you need to be eliminating, alright? Every time you eat, you need to eliminate. If not, where’s the waste going?
For those of you out there that have a big old gut, a diet change will help. Eating healthier foods will help with reducing a big gut like that, but it’s not going to be the only thing that will work.
House cleaning has to happen, alright? It’s kind of similar to having a cluttered, dirty kitchen and you want to make a meal. Until you clean the kitchen, you can’t use all the space in the kitchen, and the kitchen doesn’t work right. Same with your body. If you don’t cleanse it first, it’s not going to function properly. There’s too many things, too many obstacles and too many things in the way.
So, detoxing, we’ve got coffee enemas are excellent for reducing the gut.
When using the Detoxx 1 and 2 along with the Magi-Complexx, if you look at the different ingredients in the Magi-Complexx, your frankincense and myrrh, in particular, those two herbs, for thousands of years were the primary antimicrobials used throughout the known world. They were very, very, very prized; very valuable. And so, when taking these, these have an antimicrobial effect. And so that whole yeast, fermentation, and expansion, like leavened rising bread effect, starts to get reduced when you’re using the Magi-Complexx.
