Lets talk about your gut today.
It's really important to have a regular bowel movement (I'm talking once daily and feeling emptied) for your overall health and even more so when you are suffering from various hormonal imbalances.
When you're constipated, the metabolised hormones re-enter the body, Its toxic and inhibits the endocrine glands from producing more "fresh" hormones. You accumulate harmful estrogens and become really low on progesterone. It can cause PMS, PCOS, harsh menopause symptoms, belly fat, infertility and even breast cancer!
Constipation is on top of the list when it comes to digestive issues women experience, so let me assure you it's not just you.
In desperation many women often resort to laxatives, not realizing that these can perpetuate the constipation cycle, which often has multiple causes.
Fatigue, hormone imbalances, weight gain, insomnia, and anxiety... do you struggle with any of these IBS symptoms? Not to mention malabsorption from a leaky gut. If you struggle with IBS, odds are it's triggered by at least one of the root causes below. Once we know what's causing the problem, we can fix it. IBS is not a single disease with a single cause. There could be multiple causes. And they're going to be unique to each person. But I want to share with you the five that I see in my clients most often.
You may feel tired, cold, or that you've gained weight. Maybe your digestion seems a bit more “sluggish”.
Maybe you're convinced that your metabolism is slow.
Why does this happen? Why do metabolic rates slow down?
Have you said “bye bye” to sleeping through the night? Are you feeling exhausted or “running on stress hormones” all day? Lack of sleep affects just about everything in your body and mind. People who get less sleep tend to be at higher risk for so many health issues like slower metabolism, weight gain, hormone imbalance, and inflammation etc And don't forget the impact lack of sleep can have on moods, memory and decision-making skills. Do not fear, I have some great tips (and an amazing recipe) for you! Lets talk about sleep.
