Feeling like your digestion is making too much noise? Gurgle, gurgle. The last few months I have been working a lot and often that leads to a super-stressed me. This means my digestion can get wonky. I know what you might be thinking – that I’m a health coach, and I have this all figured out – but I am human too. In my practice, I teach people how to listen to their body and what to do when they are feeling a little out of whack.
For me, I get dry skin and start to have belly bloat. I also start to wonder why I am always feeling so incredibly fatigued! So many of my clients say they have belly bloat even when they do not eat, something that is actually not uncommon for people with digestive issues.
Stress inflames the intestinal lining and disrupts the good balance of bacteria in the gut. This is what happened to me. It was time to restore and rebuild–ASAP.
Are you so bloated that your belly feels like a big beach ball?
Do you find that you’re feeling exhausted for no reason at all?
Time to rebuild and restore your gut health with this smoothie. Every time I am feeling off, I keep it simple: smoothies, juices and easy-to-digest soups. (Busy Gal Bonus: They are easy to make as well!)
