I became really interested in gut health a few years ago after suffering from major gastrointestinal issues. My symptoms included not only digestive issues, but also brain fog, mild depression and anxiety. The gut is considered our second brain and it's our Gut Brain (Enteric Nervous System), not our actual brain that makes 90% of the body's serotonin (a crucial mood balancing neurotransmitter).

My journey to healing my gut included eliminating inflammatory foods, assessing nutrient deficiencies and supplementing my diet with crucial vitamins and probiotics. .

I take probiotics daily to keep my gut in check. And I'm so happy to be working with @smartyhealth in my mission of gut healing! One of the perks of my job is the opportunity to align with health conscious companies that are making a positive impact on the world. The SmartyPants adult probiotic is AVA-certified vegan and allergen-free. And for every bottle sold, they make a 1 for 1 nutrient grant to Vitamin Angels that goes directly to moms and children in need.

I'm under a pressure cooker of
deadlines and responsibilities

Surviving on very little sleep
Everything is on the line

Oddly, I am calm

These tools
They work

Trusting my gut

Some patterns still remain
Procrastination, yes
Always a work in progress

But panic is past
No longer trapped
in my body or mind

Fear is a whisper
No longer a shout

Courage is my compass

I am guided
This I know

I am grateful

Setbacks. I've had so many of them and I'm currently experiencing one now in the form of a torn meniscus. Physical injuries used to spiral me into panic, fear and mild depression. Physical movement is how I make my living, so fear is a normal response. I remember a time not too long ago, where I thought I would never be able to handstand again...yet here I am handstanding with ease after two torn elbow ligament injuries.
The point is this. Switch your focus from "Why me?" to "What now?" Focus on the solution, rather than the problem. Complaining keeps you mired in misery. Focus on what's good. Focus on what you have, not what you've lost. Focus on rebuilding, training smarter, and moving forward. Make your comeback greater than your setback. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

"There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise." -@brenebrown
My trauma was my greatest gift because it taught me my resiliency and gave me the courage to rise out of the shadows of shame and step into the brilliance of my light. I still have moments where I stumble - we all do - but that will never stop me from moving forward.
If trauma healing calls to you, there's still time to sign up for our 3-day @purpledotyogaproject Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher Training May 5-7 at @yogarajwla in Los Angeles. Learn life-changing tools to help people heal from trauma and access their greatest strength and resiliency. Link to sign up in my bio. ✨

Faith wishes you all a happy, healthy Easter! Instead of processed sugar and chocolate eggs, she's delivering flowers and @livevegansmart to all the neighbors! 🐰🐢🌸
