What you eat matters, but so too does HOW you eat.
Do you experience bloating, gas and indigestion? Consider how you are eating. This could be happening because you are eating mindlessly which is stressful to the body. You might be eating on the go, running from one thing to another, or eating while doing on other tasks like driving. Try to be completely present while you are eating. The goal is to not be stressed out! Focus on food, not your phone or laptop.
You can also make other lifestyle changes to destress and help with digestion. “Research shows the stress response can alter the natural balance of healthy bacteria in your gut, causing the gut ecology to shift in favor of a more hostile group of bacteria,” says Pedre. Find something that helps you de-stress, whether that involves yoga, meditation, deep breathing, or unwinding with friends. Ask our office how we can help you holistically!
