I received so many responses to my last post that I want to follow up with some helpful advice.
Hey, I've been there. Ten years ago, I had two babies under 2, I was busy, exhausted, overwhelmed and really, really sick. Everyday. No one had any answers for me so I set out to find out myself.
A few years later, after school and healing myself and a number of others, I had it all figured out... but then there was a hiccup - a crisis that put everything I knew about gut healing into question!
The crisis meant I had no time or energy to uphold the standards of my specialized diet. But by giving it up, I learned that:
Why? Because it is HOW our digestive system is working (or not) that determines whether we are nourished or poisoned by our food - basically, if we thrive and heal or succumb to disease.
And our health is reliant on both good digestion and good gut bacteria... and both are totally, unequivocally disrupted by STRESS :(
Now I was under a lot of stress at this time, and I knew that it would screw up my gut function, so I took very DELIBERATE SIMPLE STEPS TO PROTECT AND SUPPORT my gut - and they worked!
Wanna know what they were?
Well, stay tuned, cuz I'm going to share them with you in the next few weeks.
I just want you to know... to give you hope... that there are SO many steps you can take to begin healing the gut that aren't complicated or require massive change.
Yes, specialized diets are helpful - I'm not discrediting them - but they are also difficult to implement and maintain inside a hectic life, and they just are not doable for many people.
I'm here to show you another way. You CAN confidently start the healing journey with very simple steps that are incredibly helpful, sometimes without even changing what you eat!
So stick with me. I'm going to show you how it can be done. And it doesn't have to hurt your brain or complicate your life. I can't wait to share with you how!
With love for your gut,
