All of the information in this book has been thoroughly researched and revised. However, we are not doctors and if you have a serious medical issues, we highly recommend you seek professional help. Everyone is different and what’s right for one person doesn’t mean it’s right for you, or someone else. This book is not meant to diagnose you or treat you; it is meant to inspire and encourage you to love your body a little more each day, and to give you some tips and ideas on how to make living in it easier and happier.
Every drawing was developed using reference material, but artistic liberties were taking when creating this book. It is not meant to be a study guide.
You have one. I have one. We only get one and without it, we wouldn’t be who we are… We use it to eat, laugh, love, swim, jump, dance, sleep, cuddle, read, walk, watch football, study, travel, and much more… It’s always on and it’s always working. It can adapt to almost any situation. It can change and it can break. It can hurt and it can heal. It’s your body!
The human body is made up of organs, tissues, cells, fibers, nerves, vessels, and various cavities. Inside your body, at this very minute, your heart is pumping gallons of blood, your brain is sending and receiving billions of signals and controlling life-sustaining functions from your heart rate and blood pressure, to your rate of breathing and digestion. You don’t even have to think about it!
Your body is a work of art—beautiful and detailed. A little extra love for it can go a very long way. How you treat your body matters. Your food literally becomes YOU. With this book, we’ll take you on a journey through what’s inside of YOU, so you can understand your body better, feed it better, and enjoy living in it longer and more happily.
Now get ready, because we want to see YOUR GUTS!
We would like to thank three very important people for their help in creating this book. Without them and their knowledge about the human body, health and the ins and outs of the English language, this would not have been possible:
Jay Kindschi, DC
As a chiropractor and teach of Anatomy and Physiology (Milwaukee Area Tech College), Jay loves to share his passion for learning and fascination of the human body. He raises sheep, chickens and children in his spare time.
Sarah Axtell, ND
As a naturopathic doctor and founder of Lakeside Natural Medicine (Milwaukee, WI), Sarah is passionate about using food as medicine to promote optimal health. She loves to cook, particularly using super-foods, such as ginger, for her fellow gingers at home.
Bindy Morris Bitterman
Her contribution to this coloring book, as to all of Artery Ink’s products, is in the area of spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Bindy has been a professional proofreader (for Playboy, no less, when it was just a baby!), an editor, and is soon to publish a book of her own.
