HEALTHY GUT, HAPPY MOOD
The gut and the brain are directly connected.
The gut-brain axis is currently a hot research topic, studied by many universities around the world. There is an explosion of new fields showing how the bacteria in our gut can affect our hormones, our mental health, and so many other functions of our body. That is another strong reason to get our gastrointestinal health in check and bring our microbiome back into balance.
IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT FOOD.
Our microbiome is affected by many things.
It’s been now shown consistently in studies that many factors affect gut health, including:
Mental health (depression, anxiety, trauma)
And this is why it is important to use a holistic approach.
It takes a multidisciplinary approach.
Given the complex relationships between the gut and the other body systems, it is important to address many aspects of the imbalance.
Mental health is an important part of the puzzle. We will develop coping mechanisms and strengthen your self-efficacy, using psychological therapies and mind-body techniques such as mindfulness and breath work.
Feeding the good bacteria and starving the bad ones will slowly and steadily bring your microbiome back into balance. Low FODMAP diet is only one of the approaches that can be used. We will find out what works best for you.
Stress can trigger, amplify and prolong gastrointestinal issues. We will regulate your nervous system through a combination of mindfulness, restorative yoga, visualization techniques, and even art and music therapy.
What type of problems can be addressed with this approach?
This integrative multimodal approach has helped people with:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Heartburn / GERD
Chronic Constipation / Diarrhea
Why choose me?
I have struggled with constipation my whole life, but have finally found my way into healthy bowel movements. Gut imbalance disorders such as IBS, heartburn, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea require changes starting with your mind and your lifestyle. Those changes in mindset and behavior require a long-term individualized approach. My thera-coaching program does exactly that.
I am a board-certified health and wellness coach and Lifestyle Medicine professional, with a Master’s degree in Psychological Medicine and Mental Health. I’m also a registered yoga teacher, a mindfulness practitioner, and a nutrition specialist. I have received training aimed at gut health by renowned universities and some of the best specialists in the world. And I’ve applied that knowledge to help many others like you. I’m a former scientist, and I take science very seriously. I only work with evidence-based approaches, and I am constantly updated on the latest findings.
We have also partnered with Nerva to provide gut-directed hypnotherapy, contact us to learn more.
And last but not least, I also suffer from IBS. That alone doesn’t make me an expert, but makes me someone that can relate to your experience. And I have healed using the same approach that I now teach clients. I would love to help you find your way to less discomfort and a healthier gut.Sounds good to me
