Can You Be Physically Well With Better Sleep?
Today I'm going to be discussing the first pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy and that's being physically strong. Now most people immediately think of exercise when they hear physical wellness and although that's an important part of the equation, it's not the only aspect deserving of our attention.
Your body needs more than movement alone. Physical wellness also includes appropriate sleep, hygiene, and a healthy diet. If you're evaluating your physical health, ask these questions, are you getting enough quality sleep? And if not, what barriers are keeping you from achieving regular and restful sleep? The National Sleep Foundation recommend that adults should get anywhere from between seven and nine hours each night of sleep.
Why Holistic Health Is Much More Than Preventing Illness
Today I'm going to start a new series about holistic health and how that "whole health" starts in your belly and then radiates out from there.
Health is often understood as the absence of disease or sickness. Now, while this definition is valid, it actually lacks the comprehensiveness of the broader approach. Start assessing your holistic health and wellness on a wider spectrum.
When it comes to health and wellness, no one really knows how you feel. No matter what pills are recommended or cures are suggested, no one knows how you feel.
So if you are ultimately in charge of your health, how do you change your health for the better? In this episode of the Go With Your Gut podcast, I breakdown why the differences in eating styles are irrelevant and why do people think keto is a religion? The bottom line is how we go about learning how to digest foods is the key to ultimate health.

Is it possible for you to be feeling your digestion? Making huge (and better) changes to your gut health requires a lot of self awareness about nutrition.
So how is it possible to be self aware to improve digestion? In this episode of The Mental Minute, I explain how to better understand how your digestion feels. When's the last time you've asked how to be thankful for the nutrition? It may be the key.

Nutrition And Insulin
How to be proactive about your health. That seems to be how society is heading, or maybe it's not. We should be looking at our health outside the box.
I'd like to discuss nutrition, and really bio hacking nutrition, and how the key to your long term success will be built upon three things. Foods bring people together, it's the source of pleasure. It also serves as the foundation that really can build on anything else that makes this body run. There's a challenge in nutrition, unfortunately, that dualistic approach in saying, "This food is bad, this food is good."
Don't Be Reactive About Your Health
Are there any healthy lifestyle changes you should follow to lose weight? Weight loss and mental health require you to think about how to be proactive about your health This encompasses healthy lifestyle changes surrounding food.
Are you making the necessary healthy lifestyle changes in order to improve your digestion and gut health? If you believe you are, the next logical question should be whether you are being proactive or reactive when it comes to improving your digestion.
Combining Different Foods
Is there something they don't want you to know about food combining? There are many food combinations that are good and food combining is important for your overall health.
I'd like to begin talking about food combining and using the illustration of eating a hamburger and bun, why that could be the cause of your indigestion, gas and bloating. When you eat a hamburger and bun, the protein's secrete digestive enzymes because it needs an acidic environment. Carbohydrates require an alkaline environment secrete digestive enzymes accordingly as well. So releasing those digestive enzymes essentially you can see there's a possibility that they could actually neutralize each other out and slow down digestion. What happens when you slow down digestion?
How Can Probiotics Help You Have More Energy?
Are you aware how much digestion increases energy? Although increasing energy is so important, what are 3 additional ways probiotics help your body?
As we go through life, we should always be looking to biohack our body to get it to perform optimally, and this includes adding probiotics to your digestive system. So is possible that probiotics can improve your life? The bottom line is that good digestion increases energy levels, and who doesn't want that?
Different Digestive Properties
How does the digestive system work in the human body? Is digestion and gut health the same for everyone or do people each have different issues and potential problems and benefits? I've had my own experience of both good and bad digestion, and I believe it's important for me to share why should gut health and digestion be important to you.
Better Health Relies On Listening To Your Gut Instincts
When it comes to your health and healthy foods, do you listen to your head or what your gut is literally telling you? It seems everyday, we are bombarded with labels surrounding the foods we eat like "this food is healthy", "this food is fattening", "have this for breakfast", and "don't eat that for your snack".
I am here to say that this type of thinking stifles our ability to really find out what each of us has to do to become healthier. In today's podcast, I discuss why when it comes to better foods, we should begin to think outside the box and not only eat what's in a box. To listen to or download this podcast, follow the link.
