What is Gut Health and Why Does it Matter?
Your gut microbiome, a.k.a the community of bacteria living in your gut is responsible for so much of your overall health. Hippocrates had it right when he said over 2000 years ago "all disease begins in the gut."
About 70% of our immune system is in our gut and over 30 hormone genes are expressed in the gut, making it the largest hormone-producing organ in our bodies. Our intestinal tract also acts as a defensive barrier from what we ingest, protecting harmful substances from entering our bloodstream. When this barrier breaks down, we get what is referred to as "leaky gut" which can lead to inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, skin problems, food intolerances, hormone imbalances, autoimmune conditions and issues with maintaining a healthy weight. The first step in improving your overall health always needs to begin with gut health.
As a gut and digestive health specialist accredited by the Institute of Transformational Nutrition, helping all my clients nourish the health of the gut microbiome is my priority. I do this by addressing the diet and lifestyle factors which affect gut health. A great way to get started on your journey to an improved gut is with my Trust Your Gut Reset Program Ebook. It includes a self-care guide developed by the Institute of Transformational Nutrition and a collection of gut-healthy, low FODMAP (read more about this below) recipes created by me.
The Trust Your Gut- 10 Day Reset Program
The recipes in this reset cleanse are packed with nutrients and are aimed to fuel your body as opposed to restricting it as many cleanses do. They are also low-FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols), a type of carbohydrate that can ferment in your gut, resulting in bloating and gas. Temporarily eliminating FODMAPs can be beneficial for those experiencing gas and bloating and for those who have digestive conditions such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth).
So are you READY to feel great? In 10 days, you will be well on your way to Trusting Your Gut- with a gut better equipped to support your overall health as well as a heightened intuition around eating and knowing what you are really hungry for.
This reset cleanse is designed to help you reset your digestive system. For anyone experiencing bloating, fatigue, hormone imbalances, blood sugar imbalances or emotional eating, this protocol is the first stop for transformation.
This program includes: 30, easy to make, nourishing recipes, a self-care guide and access to my exclusive Facebook community to help you on your health journey.
The Trust Your Gut reset cleanse works to nourish your body on a holistic level: body, mind and spirit. Following the Transformational Nutrition Model, not only will you be encouraged to eat all-natural, non-processed foods but also to take time for yourself everyday to journal and focus on your well-being.
