The Human Digestive Tract

What the human digestive tract looks like The human digestive tract is a 30-foot-long tube, with lots of folds and bends, of varying surfaces and purposes, that runs from the mouth to the anus.  Centered around the small intestine, extending upward to the stomach, downward to the large intestine, and sideways to the supporting organs, the “gut” as we call this area is the foundation of human health or disease.

Cathy’s insight and guidance has, and continues, to help me organize my previously chaotic life into a group of systems that work well together.  Her program helped me reduce the stress of trying to keep track of so many things at once, and save me significant time that can be used for more productive things. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and to keep track of, I highly recommend that you speak with Cathy about how her Time Strategies can help you make your life make sense.

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.
