Although everyone seems to want less of it, fat is actually vital to your health. Struggling to digest fats properly can lead to a host of symptoms. Many of which, are often overlooked or mis-diagnosed as being caused by something completely different.
If you’re experiencing problems like diarrhea, bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, fatigue and a string of other inflammatory conditions, it could all be explained by what’s going on (or not going on) in your gut.
Fat malabsorption is not something you want to ignore and it’s not something that will go away on its own either. The only way to get your digestive system back on track so that it can start to digest fats properly is by making healthier and wiser choices when it comes to what you’re putting into your body.
However, that doesn’t mean I want you to be at a point in your life where your digestive health is so poor that you need to hire me. Thankfully, there are seven easy steps you can take so that you’ll NEVER have to hire me.

Before we get into six very common and serious complications when you can’t digest fats properly, let’s reflect on what food actually is…
Food is the REAL medicine
Prescription drugs will not heal the body. Food is the real medicine and if you’re serious about your health, you need to make sure that you’re putting enough of the right foods into your body.
So, what do I mean by food?
Food is what the body needs to function properly. The body needs fats, carbs, proteins, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. When you’re experiencing symptoms, the medical model will almost always feed you prescription drugs. These drugs might reduce symptoms, but they do not identify or target the root cause of those symptoms. This means that sooner or later, you’re likely to end up right back where you started. Struggling with the same symptoms and being handed a prescription for the same medication that never solves anything.
Think about it this way. If you have a garbage dump full of rats, how can you get rid of the rats? Should you throw some rat poison on them and hope for the best? Or, should you get rid of the root cause of the problem and actually clean up the garbage? It’s common sense or at least, it should be.
What is the lymphatic system?
One of the most important systems in the body is the lymphatic system. This is your body’s natural sewer system since it helps to get rid of things like toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The lymphatic system transports lymph, which is a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, around the body.
However, if your lymphatic system cannot do its job properly and it doesn’t remove waste from your body, it can cause a host of complications. If you’re not digesting fat, you’ll experience fat deficiency symptoms. You need to clean up your lymphatics by removing all of the unwanted waste from your body.
Symptoms of fat deficiencies
Constantly taking medication for symptoms without actually addressing the root cause of those symptoms is a huge mistake. So, how can you tell if your body is struggling to digest fats?
Some common complications that arise when you can’t digest fats properly include dry skin, hair loss, pregnancy and fertility issues, tremors, erratic blood pressure and toxicity in the body.
To digest fat properly, you need enzymes. Enzymes digest food and they heal your gut, which is why they’re so important. Unfortunately, our modern-day society has pretty much eradicated enzymes from our everyday diet, which means that most people don’t have enough enzymes in their gut to digest food.
How to digest fat
If you’re experiencing things like hair loss, dry skin and so on, you need to eat more fat. Foods like avocados, coconut oil, walnuts, cashews and pastured eggs are some great options to introduce more natural fats into your diet.
You have to make the conscious decision to get rid of all of the refined junk from your diet. The odd cookie now and then is fine. But, don’t overdo it and don’t eat junk food every single day, that’s only going to cause you more problems in the future.
The next step is to take a digestive enzyme such as Smart Lymph. This unique formula combines animal source pancreatic enzymes, food enzymes, and calcium for use in cases of inflammation and energy deficiency.
You need to take a digestive enzyme because unfortunately, they are devoid in our food supply and when we heat anything over 118°F, it kills any enzymes that were present. This means that you’re now asking your immune system enzymes to convert from healing your body to digesting your meals. Your body can’t do this for long and if you continue to have undigested food floating around your immune system, your lymphatics have to take over and it won’t be long before you start experiencing symptoms as a result.
The primary role of ‘Smart Lymph’ is to enhance the vital cleansing function of your lymphatics. If you’re not digesting fats properly, you need a digestive enzyme to help clean the fluid surrounding the cells in the body by removing all of the waste, toxins, and impurities. Ensuring that your lymphatics are performing at their absolute best is key if you want to maintain a healthy gut and digestive system.
