Why Compromised Immune Function Starts in the Gut

Uncategorized Jun 16, 2021

More and more working mothers are focused on immune health, what with all the bugs children can bring home, and also the need to be on top of their game to ensure they can keep work and family and everything else spinning.

But often Mums don’t have the full picture of the things that impact immunity the most.

In this article, we’re going to share why compromised immune health can often start in the gut.

 

Immunity is Much More Than Supplements & Exercise

When people think of immune health they think about taking supplements, eating a little better, or working out.

While all of those things are important, often they miss some of the most important areas where they need to focus if they want to protect their own and their family’s immunity… and one of those areas is gut health.

And one of the things that can impact your gut the most is stress! And hustling mothers, we know there is a lot of that!

3 Uncommon Ways To Reboot Energy

Uncategorized Jun 08, 2021

Every working Mum wants to have more energy and feel great so that she can juggle the demands of work and family with joy and ease!

But the reality is most Mumma’s are feeling totally burned out and dying to get their own energy back.

So stay tuned and we’ll share 3 uncommon ways to reboot energy.

Quick Fixes Don’t Work

Normally when busy Mums are experiencing low energy they look for quick energy fixes, things they can drink or eat (like caffeine or sugar) in attempts to get “more energy”.

When none of these tactics work, they can start to feel more drained than ever!

They may try to get to bed earlier or even add in some more exercise to “pep” them up, but what they don’t know is that there are key hormonal and mindset blocks that are holding their energy hostage.

3 Things That Can Drain Your Energy

  1. One of the first things we tell burnt-out clients is to “stop exercising so hard”! It may sound counterintuitive but...

What Can Cause Leaky Gut?

Uncategorized Jun 02, 2021

We see so many professional working Mums struggling with brain fog, bloating, and a long list of GI issues.

Most people blame it all on stress (which is often a big part of the picture, especially for depleted Mumma’s) but there could be something they are missing… and it could be Leaky Gut!

When Your GI Scopes & Blood Tests Come Back As Clear

Unfortunately, most primary care doctors will assume that the symptoms we mentioned are caused by ONLY stress when their patient’s GI scopes and blood tests come back clear.

While scopes are important to pick up certain issues, they don’t pick up functional gut imbalances, like Leaky Gut, that can cause a lot of symptoms - not just gut issues, but also other seemingly unrelated symptoms like skin issues, brain fog, and poor energy, which can really be impacting your ability to ‘Mum’ and your productivity at work.

Sometimes, their doctor may send them home with a suggestion to take OTC antacids or even...

3 Steps To Get Rid Of SIBO

Uncategorized May 25, 2021

Dealing with constant bloat and chronic GI issues is no fun, especially for busy working Mums with lots of obligations!!

And not being able to get answers from doctors can be so frustrating.

In this article, we’ll share the real culprit behind many GI symptoms called SIBO and three steps to getting rid of it.  

Why Conventional Medical Testing Rarely Gets to the Root Cause of IBS

Traditionally, when people see their doctor complaining of gut issues they will be examined and then usually sent to a GI specialist.  

Most GI doctors will then do a colonoscopy which can be important and necessary in some cases  – but really doesn’t tell us what’s happening at the microbial level in the gut.

In fact, they miss looking into the small intestine completely and that is where the problem usually occurs. 

And just scoping the gut also doesn’t pick up really important factors like food sensitivities, pathogens, or bacterial overgrowth...
