“My biggest shift in body, weight, and mind happened when I focused on nourishing my gut and taking care of myself from the inside out.”
Gut Health is Linked to Total Health
Your gut is the center of your being. Yes, it digests and assimilates nutrients from the food that you eat, but it does so much more than just that. It’s where the majority of your immune system resides, and it plays an important role in your mood and hormones. So if something’s off in your digestive system, it can show up as excess weight and bloating, but it can also show up as poor sleep, chronic anxiety, embarrassing acne, fatigue, and more.
Fermentation is a chemical transformation that happens when compounds are broken down or metabolized. Fermentation is a process of “becoming.” It happens thanks to the life process of tiny beings—friendly microbes such as yeast and bacteria whose own life cycles and metabolisms help us humans stay healthy and fed. Milk meets a simple life form and becomes easily digestible yogurt. Cabbage can become kimchi, grapes become wine, and flour becomes bread.
For many of us, mental, physical, and even emotional health choices are held together by our spiritual self-care. We recognize that our responses to the ever-changing, ever-challenging world depends on connecting regularly to what matters.
