How To Heal Your Digestion

In this episode, I discuss my healing journey and tips on how to heal your digestion. Having poor digestive health will zap your energy and leave you struggling to feel that vitality you once had.

By healing your digestion, you can regain your energy, leave your uncomfortable symptoms behind, and enjoy the people and things you love most in life.

I discuss the value of healing holistically and how this is the only way to truly get better. I also mention specific tools that have helped me in my own healing journey. Many of these tools aren’t obvious when it comes to healing your digestive health. It’s not just about the food you eat!

Poor digestive health affects your whole being including your physical, mental, and emotional health. Using a customized combination of tools and finding the best foods and lifestyle for you is the most effective way to heal your mind and body holistically.

By identifying what works and doesn’t work for you, you can be in control of your symptoms and make conscious decisions about what you choose to eat and do. Once you know what supports you and what triggers you, you’ll be empowered with the knowledge and awareness you need to live a healthy and satisfying life.

The diet, self-care, routines and rhythms, time and energy management systems, stress management strategies, social life, and career choices that are right for one person, may not work for another. So, establishing an individualized plan is super important.

What’s Healthy?

We often have preconceived and implanted ideas of what’s “healthy,” as we’ve been taught what “should” make us feel good. But if those things don’t make you feel good, then they may not actually be healthy for you.

For me, it was too much of certain vegetables, seeds, beans, and nuts. These were all things that I was eating way too often because I thought they were healthy for me! And, they are healthy in moderation, but going overboard when your digestion is already compromised can really impact your health.

I learned that I feel better eating those things in moderation. I also feel better with some grains in my diet as compared to when I was on a grain-free or Paleo diet.

Letting go of an attachment to a specific diet or way of living and exploring your individual food and lifestyle, might be the best thing you can do for your health.

Learning to listen to your body is an invaluable tool and cultivating that awareness can help you create long-lasting change in your health and your life. I invite you to set aside what you’ve been taught is healthy and explore for yourself what’s actually healthy for you at this time in your life.
