Healthy Gut Healthy You

According to Hippocrates, “All disease begins in the gut.” Which also means all health originates in the gut.

Did you know that 70% of the immune system is found in the gut & 95% of serotonin is manufactured in the digestive tract? This is why the gut is called, “the second brain.” Your cognitive functioning, mood, and immune health are directly correlated to the health of your gut. Focusing on digestive health is more important than ever. After I healed myself from my own gut issues

(Candida & Leaky Gut) I noticed such a positive shift in my mood, ability to focus, and immunity. Focusing on your gut health is the key to keep your immune system strong.

Here are some basics you can start with right now:

Consume collagen boosting foods Bone Broth Incredibly healing to the gut lining. It helps to seal the tight junctions in the gut. Beef Gelatin check out my lemon gummies recipes HERE for a tasty way to consume more collagen Consume High Fiber Foods legumes beans peas oats bananas asparagus artichokes leeks Take high quality probiotics Note: If you are not sure whether you have dairy intolerance it is best to consume dairy free probiotics. Food intolerance's wear down the gut lining. So if you think you might have an issue opt for dairy free probiotics

Consume Probiotic Rich Foods Fermented veggies Kefir Kimchi Yogurt w/o added sugars Kombucha (I don’t consider most kombucha to be very healthy but, moderation) Consume Prebiotic Rich Foods Fibers and natural sugars that stimulate the good bacteria in the gut) Jerusalem artichokes Garlic Leeks Asparagus Bananas Barley oats Apples Flax seeds Seaweed Apple cider vinegar Eat Anti inflammatory foods Turmeric Ginger Green leafy veggies Fresh fruits, especially pineapple + berries

Omega 3 rich foods

Chia seeds

flax seeds


coconut oil) Bone broth Consume healthy fats Grass fed butter Ghee Extra virgin olive oil Coconut oil Avocado oil Consume filtered water Aim to drink 40-64oz depending on your height, weight, and level of activity. This will help to flush toxins out of your system and support a healthy gut. Chew your food thoroughly as it plays a crucial role in optimal digestion. Exercise plays a key role in helping food properly move through the digestive system. Eat warm foods which are easier to digest Reduce foods that cause inflammation of the gut Heavily processed oils Canola oil, corn oil, and soybean oil Trans fats Fried foods

Excess sugar Refined sugars Glyphosate (roundup)

Processed Foods

Foods that come in packages with a long ingredient label Food dyes

Food coloring is in many processed foods to give it color. Instead opt for foods naturally colored with fruits and veggies Excess Alcohol

Food additives

Reduce Stress

Stress has a major impact on the digestive system

I hope this helps point you in the right direction.
