If you think of your digestive tract like a lush meadow, it is easy to understand why it is so important to listen to our bodies when they tell us when something is wrong.

Did you know that you DO NOT DIGEST THE FOOD YOU EAT? Neither do plants, and animals! No plant or animals digest their own food. Plants do not have the capability to secrete sufficiently strong acids to break down rock in order to obtain the rock’s minerals. Rather, it is the soil-based microorganisms through a very complex exchange of materials that digest various rock minerals (inorganic) and organic materials to produce food that is then absorbed by plants or animals.

So if you are outside and around shady, moist ground cover or areas with tall grass, brush, shrubs, and low tree branches, even in lawns and gardens, double check your clothes and skin for any symptoms as these areas can or may harbor ticks.
