How to Digest Better | Beyond Food | Rest and Digest

To digest better, reduce bloat, and ultimately help the side effects that occur if you’re not digesting, and resting, well, I have a special guest in this episode. She’s one of my favorite essential oil gurus.

Of the most common complaints among women in our Flipping 50 community and women I’ve worked with over more than 3 decades, is gut issues. Often women put up with constipation, diarrhea, gas and or bloating for years. If you too have accepted those symptoms for too long or are experiencing more of them now as hormones shift, this is for you.

Why Now?

During out pandemic, this is a timely topic. Stressors we didn’t have, showed up. Stressors we had have been amplified. Then we witnessed, fires, and weather changes, and political chaos.

Please note: You will hear a barking dog for about a minute in the background. (Some realities of pandemic life).

Questions we answer in this episode:

  • To digest better, the Parasympathetic state is so important, how is it connected to bloating, gas and other issues?
  • You’ve got a new book coming out so very related to stress. The topic of parasympathetic state is going to be important here today. What’s the title of the new book?
  • Would you define sympathetic and parasympathetic before we go into the importance of this book for our stress.
  • Why does tension/congestion start in the neck?
  • How does that affect us

Exercise to reduce your stress levels?

The sweet spot for exercise starts with LESS, and better exercise. Exercise is not the ticket to weight loss, though it is the gateway to good habits that can optimize weight and or body composition. Strength is directly connected to longevity and “healthspan.” Less cardio and more strength is the right longevity cocktail.

If you’re ready for your first next step but don’t know where to begin… STRONGER is open a few times a year.
