Our gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) knows how to take a licking and keep on ticking. It is one of our most under-cared for organs, yet works so hard to support us. We are aware of heart health and lung health, breast health and prostate health – while ALL of these are important if we LOVE on our gut [and liver] those other areas will have the support needed to function.
The connection between what we eat and how we behave is something I have been exploring for a while now. I began to delve into this area of health when it seemed like I could not find the answers I needed to improve my health. It seemed like I was offered many random theories but no answers regarding why my body was not ‘up-to-parr’. I prayed and began looking for guidance regarding healing. I researched, asked questions, tested this and tested that in an effort to ‘get better’… and today I am healing. Healing is a process and I am well and BEcoming my best self every day. I started out as a champion for myself and today I advocate for many others.
There are so many correlations to the food we eat and how we feel and / or behave. Many people do not realize that some gut issues contribute to depression, impulsivity and other behavioral and mental health concerns. While, I am not a doctor, I am a wellness advocate, who researches and shares information that will aid you in making wise choices for your well-BEing. I am a champion for you, as you journey to BEing your best self – mind, body and spirit.
Not only does what we eat affect how we behave but it also impacts how our body processes nutrients from the food we eat and how it eliminates waste. If we are not eliminating waste appropriately, it is just sitting in our colon creating a toxic waste environment. In addition, our body will not be able to adequately absorb nutrients if our colon is packed full of mess.
Gut health is an absolute passion of mine. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing with you some helpful information and ways to love on our gut. I hope you are following me on IG so you can watch my stories and be notified when I go LIVE. In 20-19 we are doing better – for real for real. Oh, and because of this passion, I was affectionately given the nickname gut chick, hence the blog title. Are you excited to know more about your gut??
