In the last few years I've come to understand how important our gut is to maintaining and thriving in this crazy world. What we eat really does affect every aspect of our lives.
In order to truly heal I've had to go to extremes with my diet. This road is not for everyone and can have detrimental ramifications if not careful. For me though it saved my life. I was on the path to self destruction; eating and drinking whatever I wanted. Needless to say I did not feel great. My physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body was starving from the malnutrition.
It wasn't until a health crisis scared the bajeebus out of me that I made a commitment to my wellbeing. I gave up alcohol, sugar, dairy, carbs and salt. Not before long the changes began to show. With the help of acupuncture, herbs and my diet changes, I was able to reverse some of the major health conditions that I was experiencing. Literally every aspect improved! Physically I was able to do things I hadn't done in years. My mental clarity improved. I was motivated in my personal and professional life. I was connecting with people in an authentic way and it was coming back to me ten fold.
All this by making a few simple changes.
Moral of the story... Eat well! Listen to what your body is telling you. Your body has all the answers if you just listen. Take a moment or 3 and just listen.
