Today on Whole Woman Wednesday, you’ll learn why our gut is so closely linked to our brain, and three ways you can lower stress levels by reducing gut inflammation.
You may have heard the digestion referred to as a “second brain.” If you think about it, the way our intestines are coiled together sort of look like a brain, don’t they?
Western medicine and nutrition communities are discovering more and more evidence of this connection between our gut and our mood. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has recognized this mood-gut connection for thousands of years.
In fact, I usually start with strengthening the digestion when working with patients one-on-one, no matter what they are seeing me for, but especially when their chief complaint is stress and anxiety.
Bottom line, if your digestion isn’t working optimally, no amount of yoga, meditation, or mindfulness is going to bring you lasting peace of mind.
This is why I use a holistic approach to address bringing more peace and calm into your life in my brand new 14-day online program, Peaceful Woman, opening next week!
In Peaceful Woman, you’ll learn more in-depth practices to get your “second brain” in top shape, plus tools like stress-relieving acupressure points, breathing techniques, creating a nighttime and morning routine, transformational self-care techniques, how to re-define your relationship with social media, and so much more.
If you have felt like reducing stress and anxiety in your life was some elusive, unreachable goal, I’m here to tell you it’s more than attainable, and I’ll show you exactly how to do it.
