A little real talk here, friends. Having suffered for years with poor digestion, brain fog, fatigue and lack of focus, I know firsthand what it’s like to pop those antacids the second I felt a twinge of discomfort. I’ve been a healthy eater for years yet, regardless of what I consumed, my stomach would expand an inch or two due to bloating (talk about uncomfortable!). As one who loves to eat, this was so frustrating and disheartening.
It wasn’t until I learned all about gut health and how to optimize my own that I had a breakthrough.
Did you know that immunity, detoxification, inflammation, neurotransmitter and vitamin production, nutrient absorption, feelings of hunger and fullness AND how you utilize carbohydrates and fat are all intrinsically connected?
All of these processes factor into whether you experience chronic health problems like allergies, asthma, ADHD, cancer, type 2 diabetes or dementia.
What you might not know is that your microbiome (gut) is directly tied to your mood, libido and even your perceptions of the world and how clear your thoughts are! A dysfunctional microbiome could be at the root of all those headaches, feelings of anxiety, the inability to concentrate, or even a negative outlook on life.
I mean, hold the phone! Nearly everything about our health — how we feel both physically and emotionally — can be swinging on the state of our microbiome… isn’t that fascinating? I would even add that it’s quite empowering too; we can influence this with some lifestyle tweaks!
Stay tuned friends- this week is all-things gut health! I’ll show you how to fuel your body and adjust your lifestyle so as to promote a healthy microbiome. Get ready to learn the best and easiest tools to support your digestion, leading to a healthier body overall!
See you tomorrow!
