King, Prince, & Pauper: The Circadian Rhythm & Digestion

King, Prince, & Pauper: The Circadian Rhythm & Digestion

The digestive system, like the whole body in which it works and plays, is in alignment with the natural rhythms of the day and night, the rising and setting of the sun. This is called “circadian rhythm” and it is built into our DNA.

It’s a simple but powerful principle. Complement this principle and your body thrives. Insult this principle and your body develops dis-ease.

Centenarians (people who live to be 100 years old or older) almost without exception practice this principle either intuitively or from guidance from their culture and ancestral traditions.

The simplest way to describe it in its most practical application related to eating is this:

Eat like a king at breakfast, a prince at lunch and a pauper at dinner.

Try it yourself for one week. This principle is transformational. It is a remedy for all digestive disorders, symptoms, conditions and it is a recipe for easy weight loss too.

There is a saying in the Russian military that goes like this: Have breakfast by yourself, have lunch with a friend, give supper to your enemy!

Nuff said! Try it out for seven days in a row. You will experience remarkable improvements in your digestive health and your overall health and well-being too.
