Bitters also stimulate the vagus nerve which is the nerve responsible for stimulating the secretion of many digestive enzymes as well as promoting the liver to flush itself. Like the lemon drink in the AM.

I believe there is something to the walking but more about helping peristalsis and such. As you move around it helps aid the movement of food

Does anyone here go for walks after they eat? Apparently it can help digestion.


Absolutely confirmed in my experience, and the Thanksgiving holiday is where it really pays noticeable dividends.

Try a group walk after the main meal *plus* one after the dessert spread and see if you can ever go back to walkless feasting.

The Human Food Project

Nobody tells a giraffe how to eat. But for the first time in history, humans donā??t know what to eat. We no longer know what human food is.

In just a few thousand centuries, our kind has gone from nesting in trees, to making stone tools and digging roots, to kindling fires, to subduing flora and fauna, to finally erecting massive cities and dropping rovers onto distant planets. For most of this evolution, our super organism (us and our microbes) adapted to a nutritional and cultural landscape that literally changed at a glacial pace.

But more recently, rapid adoption of technology and need to feed a growing population a shelf-stable food supply, along with hyper-sanitized food and water, increasing rates of c-section births, formula in lieu of breast milk and antibiotics for every sniffle, we are now out of sync not only with the natural world, but with the microbial world as well. Therefore, it is correct to say that a great many diseases of the modern world represent a discordance with the ancient microbial world...


Worth a look for those interested in Gut Health. Btw it's not another paleo thing but a serious look at how our guts should be or could be with changing diets or with dietary interventions.
