Wanna be in my Gut Gang?? .
Our gut effects not only our digestion, but our skin, mood, sleep patterns, immunity etc (boom 🤯) This is why I am so focused on spreading awareness of gut issues, and helping people to understand just how important our gut health is
1 in 3 of us have digestive issues 👋🏻
1 in 5 of us have IBS 👋🏻 also me it is a condition affected by a combination of dietary, lifestyle and emotional factors which are different for everyone .
and almost all of us are afraid to openly talk it. 😳 - not me I love a good bloating poop talk 💩 .
Top Tips: bloating 🚫Our bodies naturally detox themselves, so dnt fall for fad diets, juice cleanses or detox teas
✅Do ditch the alcohol,sugary, fizzy drinks and drink plenty of water. When we are dehydrated our bodies hold on to water. I find if I drink ice cold water it can upset my tummy so room temperature is best
. 🚫Do not inhale your food. ( i am guilty of doing this) ✅Simply chew. Be present with your food, try not to eat on the go, take time to sit down, and eat slowly it will work wonders
. 🚫Don’t skip meals, this can cause an acid build up in your gut. ✅Resume your normal eating patterns
. 🚫a lot of us often decide to reach for the fruit bowl or eat more salads, when our bodies are not used to such high fibre foods it can make the bloating worse.
✅I try to follow a very natural bloat free eating plan, plenty of recipes in my book (link in bio) I avoid over eating cruciferous veggies like onion, garlic, cauliflower, cabbage, beans
. 🚫Our gut and brain are very much connected. Feeling tense, stressed and tired can cause major gut issues and make ibs symptoms feel worse. ✅Try a little debloating yoga before you go to bed. Practicing mindfulness, colouring, taking a bath or have a calming tea
. ✅Get things moving. Doing at least 30 mins exercise every day does wonders for bloating. .
Yup I sometimes get painfully bloated, IBS can be unpredictable .. 💕
