THE MENTAL ASPECT OF AUTOIMMUNE ARTHRITIS AND HASHIMOTOS (A CASE STUDY)

I would describe myself as your typical go-getter. Always buzzing around from one thing to the next, whether it be my work as an elementary school teacher, taking a graduate class, getting my masters degree, working out hard in the gym, scrapbooking, meeting friends for dinner, whatever it was, I was doing it.

HELP YOUR DIGESTION: END LEAKY GUT + INDIGESTION (PART 2)

Digestion is a “North to South process” which means you have to consider the Northernmost issues before tackling anything in the South. (Does that make any sense whatsoever? If not, just take my word for it and read Part 1 first.)

Ok, you’re back. Phew.  

Now we’re ready to dive into what happens after our food leaves the stomach and moves into our small intestine, or gut, and how this can go very wrong.  Specifically, how the syndrome of leaky gut can really mess with our bodies’ ability to do their thang.

Leaky gut can result in food sensitivities, allergies, autoimmune disease, adrenal fatigue, digestive issues and even mood disorders like depression and anxiety. (More about that in a bit.)

YOUR ACID REFLUX, BLOATING AND SH*TTY DIGESTIVE ISSUES ARE PROBABLY DUE TO NOT HAVING ENOUGH STOMACH ACID.

Yes, I know this is contrary to everything you have ever believed about how your body is supposed to work, (pop another Tums!) but just follow me for a minute while we talk this through.  

You probably know more about your cell phone than how your body works, so this is going to be time well spent anyway, am I right?
