In this article, I will discuss digestion in Human Design at a high level. In the Human Design Chart, the ideal digestion information can be found in the arrows at the top of the bodygraph chart. Because the arrows are very sensitive to birth time it will be important to make sure you have your correct birth time when pulling up your chart.

What is Digestion in Human Design?

In the Human Design System, the brain and the gut are connected just like it is in the physical sciences. The way we digest food is  directly linked to how our brain processes information. Human Design doesn’t necessarily say “WHAT” we should eat like most diets do but it does suggest the CONDITIONS under which we should eat. It is the way the brain likes to be supported for optimal functioning. Staying in your digestion energetic is the best way to support your brain throughout the day.

How can this information be used to benefit your life? 

The WAY we take in food is an incredibly potent force in our life because it is understood that the way we physically take in food will impact the health of our brain. In a perfect world, if you eat for your ideal digestion then your brain will be optimally supported so its genius can be expressed. If you are taking in food NOT in alignment with your ideal digestion then your brain will not process information correctly.

The idea is, if we can get the physical side right (feel good physically)  then it will be easier for us to get the mental and spiritual right.

There are 12 different digestion types in Human Design – see below.

How to find your Digestion Type?
