If you’ve been consuming my content for a while, you’ll know that good gut health is a product of a complete holistic lifestyle. Sorry if that makes it sound overwhelming, but I’m not going to sugarcoat it. Your gut is linked to every major organ in your body, including your mind, so it requires an all encompassing approach. Here’s my crash guide:
Limit refined, processed, and artificial foods (especially refined carbohydrates and sugar, and artificial sweeteners)
Consume more natural probiotics (good bacteria: kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir, tempeh, miso) and prebiotics (feed the good bacteria: green bananas, onions, leeks, asparagus, chicory)
Consume a variety of plant-based foods (regardless of whether you eat meat, fish, dairy, etc.) - topping our foods with nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices is a great way to do this
Supplement starter pack: Magnesium (before bed, will help you sleep), vitamins A, B12 & C, zinc, fish or flaxseed oil, l-glutamine, l-glutathione, digest. enz.
Fast for the first 4 and last 2 hours of the day
Daily low-moderate intensity exercise
Meditate for 10 mins every day (try it!)
Manage stress in all its forms
As someone that’s coaching hundreds or people with their gut health... start with this, get it nailed down, and I promise you will see change.
