The Gut – Brain Connection

Improving your gut health starts from the inside out

Troubles with “trusting your gut” for gut health?

In recent years more research has connected gut health (digestion) to brain health.  The phrase “the gut is the second brain” comes from the gut’s response to mental health.  The gut is vital for the absorption of vital nutrients to promote energy, mental clarity, and feel good overall. What happens when your gut is bloated, crampy, and constantly uncomfortable? Do you trust your gut to dig a little deeper to find out why? Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) includes several subtypes. Your gut is unique to your body. While working together to get to your personal root cause of IBS, we will review your eating habits, the structure of eating, lifestyle, stress management, and medical history. Some signs of an unhealthy gut include:

  • Upset stomach

  • Unintentional weight change

  • Sugary diet
  • Food intolerances

  • Trouble sleeping

My Gut Health Process

The importance of lifestyle is vital in creating optimal gut health.  As your partner, it goes beyond the foods that you eat.  We will discuss your stress management, sleep habits, and structure of eating habits.  You will also understand the process of digestion, but more importantly how digestion starts with a positive mindset.

The process may include:

  • Guidance on specific Digestive Diseases – Celiac, Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Specific gut blood work available to get to the root cause of your symptoms

  • Guidance on specific elimination meal plans to alleviate symptoms

  • Reintroduction of foods to return to a normal diet.
  • Guidance on nutrition supplements to aide in digestion
  • Understand and implement lifestyle habits that will improve digestion

Gut Health is central to our overall sense of well being

Improving your gut health takes time for the gut to heal and repair so you can feel good again.  As your partner, I will be there to offer guidance and support every step of the way.   Using tools such as symptom and nutrient analysis tracker, I will ensure that you get the proper nutrition during the gut healing process.   The goal is not to just identify “trigger” foods, but how to incorporate these foods within your life.  You may be surprised by what you ADD into your weekly meal planning!
