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...

Do you suffer from constant feelings of OVERWHELM?

Uncategorized May 19, 2021
 

Overwhelm is a common feeling, for many Mums & Dad. 

Overwhelm happens when you lack the POWER to meet the DEMANDS of the challenges in your life. Maybe you lack the resources - whether it's mental, emotional, or physical - to be able to meet the demands of the challenges in your life.

Exhaustion and Low Energy: The Key Lab Tests To Determine The Causes

Uncategorized May 12, 2021

Feeling exhausted all the time isn’t normal, no matter what anyone says!

In this article, we’ll share why most professional working Mummas, and even their doctors, can miss the root cause for exhaustion and low energy. “

 

When Your Doctor Says: “Everything’s Fine”

When Mums “on-the-go” have low energy or even find themselves in a state of exhaustion, they often try to ignore it.

“Power through” becomes their new mantra and over time they can experience a downward spiral that leaves them feeling flat and fatigued, where work becomes a struggle, and spending time with their kids becomes a chore.

At this point, they may consult their doctor or have tests run on the thyroid or iron levels only to be told that “everything’s fine”. 

But the truth is, feeling exhausted all the time can be a real red flag that something is off - and what most doctors miss is that it’s linked to adrenal issues,...
