You’ve heard the saying “listen to your gut” (and you should) but did you know that your physical gut affects far more than your intuition?
Symptoms such as stomach pain, bloating, and indigestion are signs of an unbalanced gut..but did you know that your gut health can affect your mood and immunity too?
A Registered Holistic Nutritionist who has seen first-hand how changing your food choices can change lives, starting with my own.
Over the course of 6 weeks, we will discuss the science of gut health, the medicinal benefits of food, foods that harm and foods that heal, how lifestyle choices affect your overall wellness, and specific strategies to heal your gut.
Together, we will identify and address your health problems, get to the root cause, and develop an action plan to help you heal.
This course is the culmination of several years of working with clients like you to heal, and develop long term solutions for greater health and well-being.
Your gut microbiome is made up of microorganisms that live in your intestinal tract. Mainly composed of bacteria, these microorganisms are critical to your health and well being.
Your gut is where 80% of your immune system resides. It is also the place where 90% of serotonin (the happy hormone) is produced.
An unbalanced gut microbiome (dysbiosis) can wreak havoc on your body from head to toe making you more susceptible to disease, inflammation, anxiety, depression, low energy, headaches and more.
Thankfully, the reverse is also true. A balanced and flourishing microbiome leads to less, even reversed inflammation, improved immunity, digestion, energy, and mood.
