How Gut Health Helps to Reverse Aging

gut health Dec 09, 2020

I recently celebrated my birthday and my gut just got another year older, ha! I have to admit in my 44 years of existence I've been pretty rough on my gut. 

  • In my early days I lived on antibiotics -> killing my healthy gut bacteria
  • In my late teens, 20’s and 30’s I lived on alcohol -> affecting my gut brain axis & bile function
  • In my 30’s I had two c-sections -> pumped my body with more antibiotics, introduced my body to trauma, and started dealing with chronic stress from being a working mom ->-> breaking down my gut barrier wall and exposing myself to leaky gut

In my late 30’s I was at my lowest health point suffering with extreme fatigue, leaky gut, achy joints, and massive bloating. This was the pivoting moment in my wellness. I saw a functional medicine doctor, started taking gut health & nutrition courses and focused on diet, rest, “the right” exercise, stress management, and supplements. 

As I continue to evolve and learn more about gut health I’m living my 44th year more vigorous than I was at 34. I think my race pace proves it (went from an ~8 min/mile to a ~7:15 min/mile).

As I bring in year #44 with a Covid Lockdown BANG - here are a few of my favorite gut friendly products.  

Bragg Apple Cider Beverage -> helps with digestion and tastes like juice without the blood sugar spike!

If you need a Holiday Detox try this:

Christmassy Green Tonic

  • 1 cucumber
  • 5 celery stalks
  • 1 red apple, cored
  • 3 kale leaves
  • Handful of parsley + cilantro
  • 2 chard leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon
    • Juice the fruit and veggies, and then stir in lemon juice 

Food regulates metabolism and creates building blocks for healthy hormones. Don’t cheat yourself by consuming crap. Eat well, live well, and follow your gut. 

Be Gutsy as a Mother,
